Reed is a repeat offender because of a hit in 2010. Total crap.
(He did lead with his head last night. I am not buying that the Steeler lowered his head--he did--but Reed was leading with his head.)
The penalty was good. The suspension was not.
Exactly. There HAS to be a time-frame. Otherwise, if Ray Lewis hit a dude in 1996, and then in 2004, and just now (2012)... by Goodell's rules, he would be suspended. Ridiculous!!!
And, I loathe Ray Lewis... so, that's saying something.
