NFL strikes out on Manley

It's your call

November 26, 1990

Three strikes and you're out applies to football as well as baseball, according to the respondents to "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey, over the weekend.

Asked if the NFL was right in reinstating former Washington Redskins defensive end Dexter Manley, who had violated the league's substance abuse policy three times, 78 percent of the 633 callers gave a resounding no. Only 139 respondents (22 percent) agreed with commissioner Paul Tagliabue's decision to reinstate Manley, who is now with the Phoenix Cardinals.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
