Players in past that have caused SP to reach a point where its team or player that player found himself on another team. I donít think SP is there but this could well be a the first warning shot across the bow.

Donít follow social media so I will not see MTís likely response nor will I pay attention to the main stream talking heads opinions. Next weeks game and inside reporting from ďneworleans.footballĒ and Nick Underhill will probably give us more real information.

[quote=SaintGnome;899635]Yeah, but you gotta draw the line somewhere. I myself don't think a single swat to a helmet was the only issue leading to the suspension. I think there's more to it, but unless someone squeals (sources say...) we'll never

Re: Michael Thomas will miss Week 5 matchup with Chargers due to disciplinary issue

From what I read, MT punched CJG when he wasn't looking. That's not a fight, that's an ambush.

Any player who ambushes a teammate should sit whether convenient or not.

I liked Steve Smith until he sucker punched a teammate who was kneeling down. I lost all respect for him at that moment.

From what Iíve heard it was indeed a sucker punch and not a a skirmish after a practice rep like people are picturing. I donít know what exactly lead to it, but teammates are really pi$$ed at Mike right now.

Re: Michael Thomas will miss Week 5 matchup with Chargers due to disciplinary issue

-Thomas is a supremely talented guy who has and does work as hard as anyone at his craft.
-Thomas is extremely blessed to have Payton as his coach and Brees as his QB.
-A NFL locker room has 53 alpha's in it not counting the coaches.
-As fans, we have no clue what goes on in a locker room or on a practice field.
-Thomas and Gardner-Johnson seemingly genuinely don't like each other.
-If these type things aren't worked out, it can fracture a team.
-Thomas is a diva who makes 30 times as much as CGJ.
-CGJ is a tough guy who doesn't take crap.
-By all accounts it was Thomas who was in the wrong.
-They need to be locked in a private room and whatever happens happens.
