The National Football League, whose heavy-handed investigations into player misconduct are legendarily incompetent, now has its sights set on ex-Eagle LeSean McCoy.

According to Yahoo Sports, the NFL’s domestic violence investigators have begun communications with both the Milton Ga., police department and Delicia Cordon’s attorneys regarding the suggestion that McCoy arranged the brutal attack on Cordon.

Regardless of whether the authorities decide to pursue criminal charges under the ultra-high standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt, the league can impose punishment under a much, much lower threshold. And if Cordon is willing to cooperate fully with the NFL, McCoy’s discipline may hinge on the relative credibility of Cordon and her witnesses and McCoy and his witnesses.
