Report: Cable not likely to face league punishment

From Adam Schefter of ESPN.com:

Unless other facts emerge, the NFL is not expected to discipline Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable for the assault allegations that a former wife and girlfriend levied against him, a league source has said.

However, the league has directed Cable into a clinical evaluation process to determine whether further action is necessary due to conditions such as anger management or substance abuse.

Historically, the NFL has not disciplined people when law enforcement has studied the incident and determined there is not enough evidence to proceed with the case. In the case of the alleged assaults against women previously in his life, no charges were filed against Cable, nor were any civil cases brought against him.

What's notable about this is that legal experts said California is protective of its complaining witnesses and has an extremely low tolerance level for domestic abuse.

The league has investigated the incidents involving Cable and will continue to do so. But it sounded as if a chapter of a book was about to be closed.
