Four games for marijuana. Zero games for being embroiled in a child abuse investigation.
After a lengthy investigation and endless offseason drama, the NFL is not handing down a suspension to Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons over the past six months or so.
While NFL fans certainly had an idea this was a possible outcome, it's still shocking to actually see when the news finally drops.
How does this warrant absolutely no punishment?

If we're looking back at all of the decisions the NFL has made in disciplining its players, this is by far the most baffling. Tom Brady got four games for allegedly deflating footballs. Ezekiel Elliott got six games for being allegedly involved in a domestic violence case AFTER he was cleared of all the charges. Josh Gordon is suspended indefinitely for his use of alcohol and marijuana.
And now we have a serious child abuse situation on our hands in which the police were involved and there's no punishment?
The NFL has to once again look in the mirror.
