I was looking at an article where Ray Lewis went helmet to helmet on Hines and he also comments he wont' stop playing the way he does yet when Harrison does it it's considered him trying to hurt a player on purpose....hell Ray doesn't get a flag on that call.....We HAVE to get another commissioner in there...Crapell is a joke to the NFL and he's ruining it!
Quote from Lewis:
Yeah, I heard from the league and like I said they fined me whatever they was going to fine me,” Lewis said. “The thing is you definitely respect them trying to protect player safety. At the same time, it won’t change not one way I play this week no matter what the fine is. You can’t stop playing defense the way defense has always been created to play. When the receiver has the ball, your job is to disengage him from the ball. You never want to hurt nobody. I’ve been in this business too long. I just think once you start getting into these fines I don’t know how they come up with the numbers most of the time.”
What about the hit on Heath??? I thought he was dead on that one.....suspension??? Heath missed what 2 games?????
So I want to know what EXACTLY warrants a suspension or fine??? Suh most definately earned that suspension by stomping on the packer placer and this was not his first offense either but how can you suspend FOOTBALL PLAY????????????
This man is ruining the league....Ben gets his nose broke, concussions, slammed to the ground we are lucky to get a roughing the passer call on him.....
Now the coachers and physicians let McCoy out there and the media and ass clown Florio talk so much crap about the Steelers lying about Troy's concussion yet they put McCoy back in after a tackle! Looking at this hit again...McCoy was running out of the pocket with the ball...how is Harrison suppose to hit him, ...with his head jacked up in the hair..I see he does lower his head slightly and.he hit the bottom corner of his helmet (chin area) and not like he launched hit entire body at him....I dont' know..its just amazing how no one really knows anymore how they are suppose to tackle a player....IF Ben was hit like that and i know he has been before to the refs and NFL blindeyes there would be no consequences...NO matter what as soon as Harrison came toward him...Goodell was sitting in his lazy boy with eyes gazed thinking "OH BOY OH BOY IM GONNA BE ABLE TO FINE/SUSPEND THIS GUY"
Shame on the NFL here:
Ed Hochuli’s officiating crew erred when not spotting that McCoy was glassy-eyed like the video cameras captured during the game telecast. So did the NFL “observer” who is specifically assigned by the league to call the sideline if there is a hint of an undiagnosed head injury.
“He was basically out (cold) after the hit,” McCoy’s father Brad told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “You could tell by the rigidity of his body as he was laying there. There were a lot of easy symptoms that should’ve told them he had a concussion.”
Colt McCoy is culpable, too, because he didn’t tell trainers that something was potentially amiss.
So it's basically the Steelers who break ALL the NFL rules and regulations blah blah blah...Im so tired when its all you hear....The coaches and players need to get Crapell out of this league. If you can't play football go be a cheerleader!!!!!!!!!
This is all................................
