The best way to exert power is not through a show of might, but by applying the grinding attrition of Byzantine bureaucracy.
Roger Goodell and the NFL know this, which is why the league is not flexing its muscles by pounding the suspended Saints players into a board like rusty nails, but by guiding them from Line C to the next available window, where they can fill out form 10889-NotEZ in triplicate. Then get it notarized, with six forms of ID. Then wait five weeks for a decision, which will not be the one they want, but which can be appealed through another round of procedures and paperwork.
Revolutionaries and radicals are great at toppling empires with swords, but they stink at waiting on hold.
