I have my concerns as well about overly censoring player activities off the field, but everything is recorded now and reflects on the league. I don't love it, but there it is.

Let me put it bluntly:

I'm an Eagles fan-- and my interest (and thus my dollar) is very much impacted by how much I dislike this team by what I hear about the players.

The league understands that I'm not alone on this-- and wants my dollar back.

As a result, I haven't purchased any Eagles gear since an expensive Dawkins jersey (we're talking 15 years of fandom). Place that in distinction from the Flyers (whom I've met a few of -- but I know little about their opinions and lives)-- I have a lot of Flyers gear.

I'm not saying that my behaviour is correct, either. Maybe I'm wrong to be this way, but there it is.
