I figured. They are appealing just to give it due process. The suspension will be upheld.

We'll be fine. Hopefully Woodley can return.

This is just disgusting! The owners need to step up and get rid of this idiot in charge. I'm really tired of this shit!

the appeal means nothing - the league will answer the appeal very quickly - he won't be playing the Niners

take a deep breath - because now the flood gates have have officially opened on suspensions

Suh's was an obvious choice

Now we have a suspension because of a split second decision by a defender. Harrison made a call based on him running, and then because he is sitll a QB, it didn't matter

This will almost not def be the last time Harrison or another Steeler for that matter will be suspended. Now refs are going to be looking for ways to force the roughing the passer and/or helmet call

EDIT: More so than they already have. Harrison and his style of play is the way of the dinosaurs in the league's eyes - mark my words, this is the tip of the iceberg. Someone, this year, is going to be out of a playoff game OR will purposefully not go after a QB/RB/WR because they don't want to be suspended

R.I.P. NFL

Why don't they just give the quarterbacks pink jerseys and wrap them in bubble wrap? This is just another step in watering down the physical play that makes the NFL great and no matter what anyone says this hit was a vicious hit worthy of a penalty, possibly a fine and nothing more. I have thought for a while that the two hits against the Browns last year were not worth half the fuss they recieved, and the hit that they fined him for on Brees was completely ridiculous. Now they suspend him for a big game like this!? Goodell has to go and he has to go now. This is BS. Put flags on em ROGER!

Re: HARRISON SUSPENDED FOR ONE GAME
 
Sorry but I just don't see where that particular hit warrants a one game - or ANY game suspension. I watched a lot of football this past weekend and I saw plenty of hits that were far worse than his and many for which not even a flag was thrown.

I know that he has a reputation and all that but if a questionable hit is supposed to be judged on its merit, I'd say James' hit was borderline at best and may have warranted a fine but that's it. A borderline hit cannot be made more severe just because it was Harrison doing the hitting.

At least it wasn't two games because if it was then the NFL would be saying that James' hit was as bad as Suh's assault and that would have probably resulted in death threats against Goodell.

As far as San Fran is concerned, I think we'll be OK without Harrison, especially since we didn't have him for a few games already this year and we survived.

But still...
