NFL issues memo threatening 'significant discipline' for violations of league's alcohol policy | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors

There's a renewed focus on alcohol in the NFL following two high-profile, though disparate, incidents. The NFL prohibits alcohol on team planes or buses. But the Commanders had beer on the team plane recently, and the league is reviewing what took place in the early-morning hours with the Tennessee Titans. Titans’ offensive coordinator Todd Downing was arrested on suspicion of DUI and speeding. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams Friday reminding them of league policy.
