NFL institutes new policy on domestic violence



The NFL is toughening its stance on domestic violence.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to every NFL owner on Thursday, announcing enhanced discipline under the personal conduct policy

Under the new policy, players would be suspended at least six games for a first offense and would face a lifetime ban for a second. The letter also specifies that the new penalties apply to all NFL personnel.

Goodell admitted in the letter that he was wrong with his decision to suspend Rice for just two games.
