Default 3 Things.....

1) The Bengals are the cheap shot kings of the NFL. Someone in NFL discipline (sp?) needs to make an example out of them for those head to head shots.

2) Haynesworth needs to be suspended without pay for the rest of the year.

3) The bye week blows (I know, I know, this is a given)

Bonus: The bengals would be 2-2 if ricardo colcough's mother and father never met.

Haynesworth only gets a 5 game suspension!!! Pretty weak statement by the new Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The Bye Week does suck Monkey Balls.
Instead of these ridiculous early season Bye Weeks how about 16 teams getting the Bye at week 8 and the remaining 16 teams getting the Bye in week 9????

Ricardo Colclough should be castrated so he can't reproduce anymore of the costly stupidity that was witnessed last weekend.............along with a backhand across Bill Cowher's face for having him return punts in the first place.

I think Hayneworth should ahve been suspended for the rest of the season. He ripped the helmet off the guy and then stomped his head twice. He needs to be arrested and charged with assault as well.

I hate to say it but I think we needed the bye the week to refocus and get things back on track.

As for Ricardo... well... I'm gonna defer to "The Chin" to do what's right now.

If you charge Haynesworth with assault, what are you going to do everytime a punch is thrown in the NFL? All it is going to do is start a snowball effect, where, in the end, the fans will lose. They hit him wehre it will hurt him the most.....his pay-check.

I agree with Stillers, if you can't make an assault charge stick against a hockey player, you can't make one stick against a football player.

I agree -- I responded the same way on the other thread -- I think the common man that doesn't pay attention to the details of the NFL, probably thinks - five games - no big deal - but these guys only get paid during the regular season -they only get living allowances during training camp and the preseason - so five games is almost 1/3 of his entire annual salary -- also, a precedent was set with the Romanowski incident -- so that will be coming in the future -I guarantee it - all he has to prove is that the incident effected his career and he will be awarded damages....

I believe it the longest suspention of any player for misconduct on the field....

Losing five game checks is probably still pocket change for most veterans in the NFL.
Hitting jerks like Haynesworth where it really hurts is when you take away significant playing time along with the monetary fine.

A full years suspension would have sent a clear and no-nonsense message to the entire league that stupid behavior will not be tolerated.
