Re: Will James Harrison be suspended? Is the NFL out to get the Steelers?
And the other thing that is scary, all of the NFL fans and sportswriters are on the same page with Goodell, it's almost like he has brainwashed everyone into thinking that this is how football should be played. I don't understand all of this, fines AND then suspensions. I understand that they are trying to protect players, fine. But when the game is happening at a very rapid speed, shit happens, isn't the 15 yard penalty and an automatic first down enough of a penalty? I mean, what defensive players WANTS to give up 15 yards. I mean, a lot of the time, giving a team 'free' yardage results in points on the board. I think that is enough incentive in itself to help prevent hits, of course they will never be entirely extinguished, but a reduction is progress. But of course the NFL wants to see them stop immediately, and they just don't see how it's possible that they continue to happen.
