    What I'd like to see is all of the footage the NFL and the network has starting with the snap to all through the mele. And, all of the sound, the hot mics that may have been pointed in their direction. Things happened very fast. Some groin kicks, etc.

    In the Thats Good Sports video I posted above, the guy says that the NFL should handle this like the MMA: A one game suspension, then, the rematch.

    I agree with you on The Rudolph part.
    Rudolph was extremely frustrated being tackled by Garrett way too late (after that game I would be frustrated in his place as well) and his temper got the best of him. So, together with the late tackle, both those issues lit the fire. Pretty sure he won't be pressing for any charges against Garrett. He would be well advsised to keep the focus on Garrett.

    But, in the end, it was Garrett who did the clubbing.

    Let's hope in two weeks that tempers have cooled and the game is not hyped too much. Ratings will surely go up during the rematch, increasing the pressure on the players of both teams.

    It was a late take down by Garrett in a decided game in the final seconds. Guys give each other push and shoves all the time, grab each other by the face masks, etc.

    That is an acceptable part of the emotions of the game.

    Taking a helmet and clubbing someone over the head with it...no excuse. Don't care if Rudolph called him the N word, simply can't have it.

    Going to be coming into this with biased glasses on. I am aware of this so probably won't be well received.

    Precedent was three games for swinging a helmet at a person and didn't happen that long ago. However Garrett connected so if it was 6 or longer, understand. What he did is inexcusable. I do think indefinite is a bit harsh but simply say "you are done for 2019" is fine. I also view this as hypocrisy. A player outside of a game can beat up a woman and maybe get 8 games like Kareem Hunt. That's a less fine than this.

    That said Rudolph should have gotten at least 1 game. He started the fight for one going after Myles' helmet. Then kicked him in a groin and then grabbed his junk. This doesn't mean he deserved to have his helmet ripped off to get smacked around like Samson with the jawbone of an ass. However in the waning seconds of a game, he helped create this mess. He deserved something.

    My initial thoughts are that the Steelers are Roger's darlings. They have skated away with very little punishment over the years for shit that has happened on the field. If he suspended Rudolph then that lessens the chance for them with a wild card or possibly catching Baltimore. Plus there is the threat of legal action. EVERYBODY involved should have gotten suspended because this happened in the waning seconds of the game. Still don't know why Tomlin was calling pass plays with 10 seconds but that is another thing. Anyway had Rudolph been playing for the Bengals, he would have been suspended. The Dolphins, suspended. The Steelers, well he gets to play the victim.

    Garrett should be suspended permanently from the league.

    Now, onto Myles, he should be suspended through the rest of the season, at a minimum. He took bad behavior to the next level.

    Yeah, looks like Kap has an agenda and it's not about playing football. Wants/needs a platform. And wants it on his terms.

    Whatever heís a 32-year old quarterback who isnít that good, and never was that good. Hopefully weíll be done hearing about him.

    And there are lots of black journalists condemning his behavior the last few days. Even theyíre done with him.

    Ravens are hot now I hope they stay healthy . The defense is maturing and gelling. Wish it was January.

    So glad my Vikes showed up in the second half. Cousins has answered the bell since he got called out earlier in the season.

    Baltimore is a team to be reckoned with this year. That defense is awesome for sure, but Lamar Jackson just keeps spiking the ball in his critics asses.

    Kap: I believe in his initial cause. I think he's better than most backups and some starters in the NFL, right now. I have questions about the waiver the NFL wanted him to sign. That aside, the Kunte Kinte shirt and his comments were just stupid. If there was something fishy with the NFL waiver, then he should have had his lawyers go public explaining why he could not sign it. Do I think the NFL's workout was a PR stunt? Absolutely. Do I think Kap handled it well? Not at all. Both sides want to control the narrative. It's a test of wills and, per usual, THE MAN will win. He's just made it too easy for them to win.

    As JD pointed out in another thread, Kaepernick simply isn't worth the aggravation. He is not good enough to justify the baggage he would bring. Employers will tolerate a pain in the ass employee if "the juice is worth the squeeze." Kaepernick is not.
