Default Re: 2014 NFL Thread

if it was anyone else in the league, that "misstep" would not have become a big issue.

In realtime it's a lot less egregious than in slo mo.

That said, I'm sure he felt he was stepping on someone and didn't care one bit, that's his character defect and given the stomp history, is why he got suspended.
Since the suspension was given to correct the character defect, I agree a $$ fine should have been added. However, the one game suspension penalizes Detroit for the playoffs and probably means the league also felt that the club is partially at fault.

I guess I'm the minority (as in 'the only one') looking at it this way.
