Robert Kraft reportedly could be punished more severely than Colts owner Jim Irsay


INDIANAPOLIS -- When it comes to potential discipline from the NFL regarding Robert Kraft and his prostitution charges in Florida from earlier in the week, many have pointed to when Colts owner Jim Irsay was fined $500,000 and suspended six games for a DUI charge in 2014.

Well, maybe the league might look to go further.

According to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, the general consensus from talking to people in the league is the NFL will punish Kraft more than they did with Irsay, if in fact the accusations are proved accurate. They believe the league doesn't want to be viewed as going easy on one of its most powerful owners. The Personal Conduct Policy also states high-ranking officials should be held to a higher standards than players.

There has been no update from the NFL besides earlier in the week saying they were fully looking into the matter.

Kraft denied any illegal activity in a statement through a spokesman last week.

He's scheduled to appear in court April 24, but he doesn't have to since his lawyer can represent him.
