Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension was appealed by the NFL yesterday, leaving some fans confused on how to feel about the latest turn of events. Watson was suspended for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after settling more than 20 civil cases for sexual misconduct.
The suspension was handed down by Sue L. Robinson, a former judge, and agreed-upon disciplinary officer for the NFL and NFL Players Association. It only took two days for the league to undermine her very first decision.

An overflow of outcries claiming that the six-game ban was too light flooded social media, with some believing those complaints were the catalyst for the NFL’s decision to appeal for a stiffer penalty.
How do you feel? Do you think the league should suspend Watson for longer? Do you think they should have allowed Sue L. Robinson’s decision to be final?
