So Hines should be suspended for saying something against the league...but Suggs should only be fined.

Nope, no homer bias going on here at all.

It may not cost you every game if you can over come it, but it will cost you one sooner or later. They are out to get us right now, don't give them even more reason.
I think that ship sailed. Have you watched the last two weeks? In a game where you could arguably call offensive holding on every play the Steelers have more Offensive holding calls in the last two games than the Patsies have all year.


Time for sittng by and saying nothing is over. This is ridiculous. Goodell and his cronies are blatantly controlling the outcome of NFL games thru the referees.

Who should be suspended? Ward? What about Suggs who pretty much says the same thing?

I wish there was a way to boycott the NFL as an organization but still support the players. In watching other games around the league, there is no doubt in my mind that Harrison is a target and the Steelers are getting excessively flagged. The whole "defenseless reciever" thing is bogus, the 1 by 1 area you can hit a player is bogus, and the fact an offensive player can grab the defensive players facemask AND that the runner can use thier helmet is bogus.

Kudos to Hines for having the cojones to not only have his teammates back, but to say the things that players and fans have been thinking. Next up: Kanye?

At the beginning of the season with all the "hold-out" talk I was nervous and kinda mad. Now I think the players should strike. Also, the owners need to get involved. The Rooney's have already spoken out against the fines, etc. they need to start speaking out against everything. Or maybe yet, the biggest statement would be if the owners and the players formed a fund of some type to pay these fines. You've got about a billion dollars on the field with all the players and coaches. $125K spread out among everyone is chump change. I feel that would solidify the team and the Rooney's against the NFL in general. Something like: You want to fine my players for BS calls? Then it's going to cost all of us the equivalent of splitting a pizza for these guys.
