After the Clark penalty today I have given up any assumption these games are being called honestly
Today's game was just full of bullshit, but I can't go far enough to say conspiracy against the Steelers.

I Am 44 and watching NFL for 35 years, this was the most abysmal and blatant officiating I have ever seen. It was like trying to fix a fight were one boxer is so dominant that you just cant fix it.
WE need to rally around as a Steeler Nation , We have the numbers to hurt the NFL FINANCIALLY and hard, lets right nowcome up with a plan to hurt the NFL by some kinda boycot to cripple them. Then we must spread the plan like wildfire( Money Talks)

I don`t think so. As a local fan here in Oakland, Seymour is a gentleman off the field and even had huge praises for Ben last week when talking to reporters. He fkd up big time in being stupid and got himself kicked out of the game which I`m positive he regrets. He let his team down when at the time, the Raiders were only 2 scores down with a full half to go. As it is, it wasn`t a career ending neck breaking hit........it was a punch....nothing else. How many of you are as old as me and remember the "old" Steelers/Raiders games? lol. Today was sandlot play compared to the old days....lol

I guess the thing that Steelers fans are looking for (as most other fans, i believe want too..), is consistency.
I personally don't think Seymour should be fined or suspended at all. Its all part of the game...a man's game. A tough game.
But lets use Harrison. Or even Woodley. I guess the issue here is that if they do the same thing, its akin to murder being committed, followed by fines + suspensions.
I don't think many Pittsburgh fans are upset with Seymour and in the big scheme of things, it was a very small play in a huge mess of BS today....however, they are VERY upset with the refs and though they won big, its almost unsatisfying. We would have rather won 20-17 with fair officiating.

I have to disagree on this point. I believe he should be fined and suspended. What he did had nothing to do with playing the game. The play was clearly over. Seymour was pissed and assaulted an unsuspecting player. Not a thing "manly" about it, imo.

It won't happen. He was ejected and that's all that will happen. He may get a fine. The league could care less about a punch as chicken shit as it was after the play and all.

They are more worried about liability. They have to show they are doing something to prevent concussion causing hits as they are fearful of future law suits. That's what all this BS is about.
