The crackback rule, or the knife in the back rule? Because ray was just giving a autograph.

That's what I was thinking. Since when did the NFL became soccer?

Let them play, forget about the hits, unless it's a very good one deserving some praise of course

I agree with you both. I don't see why this was even an issue. It was his comments later that makes him a thug.

How is Rays hit on Mendenhall even close to being illegal?

That goes for the Steelers and any other team including Ray Ray and his Ravens.

I don't agree with the bounty concept at all, however.
Back in the day, this was just normal, every Sunday football in the NFL. The game, and the players are getting soft. Of course, thats only my opinion.
