    Especially if a QB is involved in the least bit!

    Pretty soon, there will be no defensive line. The games will be nothing more than QBs throwing the ball all the game and the scores running upward of basketball scores. Of course, there will also be empty stands and no money for Mr. Goodell. He WILL rue the day he mandated these ridiculous rules. It will take a while, but eventually, the sport will die because it's entire reason for existence has been done away with.

    NHL and NFL are both suffering from the same things. AND they both have terrible commissioners to boot.

    In ten years the NFL will be dead as we know it. They don't want real fans, don't want the old style of play, corporate PC football here we come.

    I can't help but chuckle at the "repeat offender" label for Griffin. He's been fined three times over three years before this suspension. Bernard Pollard gets fined every other week for unnecessary roughness...

    Not only that- but how many times has he wiffed on a tackle trying to NOT hurt someone?

    Dude has had sure-fire sacks and he's too scared of hurting the qb so he let them go.

    Hopefully the Colts will start this off for everyone else...

    I hope Griffin doesn't revert back to his old ways because of this..

    I could seriously see another rival league actually having success somewhere down the road is this crap continues.
