Didn’t Martellus Bennett go from IR, to playing a game, back to IR? No teams spoke up with that are called for rule violation that I know of.

Exactly, and being among the NFL elite franchises certainly doesn't hurt GB. If this happened in Jacksonville, Baltimore or Cincinnati it would no doubt be a different story.

Listening to ESPN this a.m., Rob Demovsky said he first heard about the story, when John Dorsey, GM of the Browns, called him and ask, what is going on with Rodgers?

He had a new injury.

What you can't do is go on IR come back and play and then go back on IR without a new injury which is what the Packers did with Rodgers....

If it happened in New England there would be torches, pitchforks and the loss of multiple draft picks....

........or he can re negotiate his deal and be the highest paid QB in history or shop himself to whomever ,the Browns ,Jets,Texas....etc.

Rodgers is definitely not going to be released by GB, which is bothersome because the rule makes it clear that they should release him. I can understand why the NFL is not going to enforce this rule and fine GB instead, but whatever punishment the NFL imposes on GB does not justify ignoring their own rule. In the end, the NFL's credibility and reputation is going to take a hit in a time where they can use all the credibility and good rep they can get.

The old school franchises can pretty much do what they want and get away with it. Rules are for the "other" franchises so the inner circle can keep their feet on their throats. Remember, the NFL markets itself as entertainment (legally), not a sport which allows shady operation avoiding anti-trust laws. Don't expect "fairness" in the application of the NFL "rules" by The League.
