This. Overall, I'm not in favor of the suspension either, but I'm also not in favor of the selective nut hugging from the media and fans.
Steelers fans, probably more than most other teams fans, get it...he shouldn't have been suspended. A lot of guys shouldn't have been suspended. We just don't feel sorry for him or the fans, at all. When these suspensions started being handed out more and more, so much of the media and other teams fans jumped on the "Steelerz r diiirrrttyy" bandwagon. So yeah, a lot of us are going to have a bit of trouble feeling sorry for him.
