Re: Goldson suspended for hit on Sproles

Yeah. I totally agree.

Seat belts are for pu$$ies, too!

Oh, and what's up with the armed forces and bullet proof gear?! That's some sissy $hit! They knew people get shot in the military when they signed on! What a load!

Honestly, I don't even know why we worry about dropping babies on their heads. I bet the Native Americans weren't so gentle.

This world has become so lame. I'm over it. Screw the NFL for worrying about player safety. It's clearly overrated.

Re: Goldson suspended for hit on Sproles

People who are saying it's a crap suspension please consider the facts:

He is one of the most penalized in the entire league on personal fouls.
He has a very clear history of headhunting.
He was not making any attempt at tackling Sproles. He was only trying to injure him imho.

Now having said all this, if the league doesn't go after Brandon Meriwether, then it is completely hypocritical. Did anyone watch the Packers/Redskins game? Geez Louise.

Coaches love head hunters. Trust me. All this "culture changing" is new, and isn't necessarily universally wanted by the players or coaches.

We need him to play in the falcons game week 7, don't need them getting any more free division wins.

Wait a minute. The NFL just paid a $700 MILLION + settlement to retired players for health issues related to these types of hits. The fines and suspensions are an attempt to protect their current investment in high-priced athletes and to ensure that there isn't a $700 BILLION + settlement in 20 years.

I was playing ball and knocking jocks in the dirt before your first dirty diaper... Save that crap for your friends. I never went for the head or knees, everything else is defensible.

There are unwritten rules... Like prison, and gangs... There is **** you don't do because its spineless.

True. Collinsworth went on and on last night after every "big" hit in the Seattle/Whiner game. Roger wants it. The lawyers want it. And I'm not saying that dialing it in a bit is a bad thing really, but i agree with what you're saying.
