    From Peter King's Twitter. Must be pretty bad, given King's transgression on the Goodell merited only an apology.:

    A statement:
    In light of an incident in Chicago on Saturday, SI and http://TheMMQB.com have suspended Robert Klemko for four weeks.>>>>
    The decision is based on our internal review, including talks with Robert, who has been cooperative and remorseful throughout.

    The lesson here is when someone stiffs you on something like yogurt pretzels, handle it by throwing your weight around verbally and not physically.

    Be great if there is a video of Klemko driving off in the cab.

    So based on King's defending Goodell about the Rice situation and then saying Klemko was one of his guys a couple days ago, if PK rushes to your defense after a transgression you are screwed.

    Kind of a nice window into how the question from NFL writers in August was about whether Goodell was coming down too hard on Ray Rice.

    Yeah, without knowing any of the details, I can certainly understand someone getting into an argument with a cabbie.

    "Briefly commandeering the driver's vehicle" that's a little tougher to defend.

    Patrick Kane wonders what the big deal is.

    Yeah, I guess if you're going to do this in a city, he picked one with a history of being sympathetic to this particular crime.

    Another cabbie punched, this time the culprit was now-ex Broncos practice squad member John Boyett, who decided in a drunken stupor that it would be a good idea to hide in a mulch pile.
