    A source told me that the NFL is considering suspending Porter for his comments about the refs. There is also been a little chatter on sports talk radio about the same thing.

    Either that or he will get fined most likely fined.

    Damn can't even speak your mind NFL wants everybody to be robots.

    you can spit in a guys face and not get suspended, but you talk the truth and do get suspended?

    He won't be suspended. If he is then you can talk about a conspiracy.

    And I think the problem isn't that he says the officials made a mistake, but that he actually says they deliberately assisting the Colts.

    What is this Big Brother bull****? The officiating call sucked, so why can't a player complain an obvious mistake? Since the NFL made a statement calling out there own mistake, I think Porter will be ok.

    The Zebras were the most valuable player the Colts had.

    The evidence is on the video.

    Punishing a player for stating the obvious should be taken as a further admition of guilt by the league.

    There is a rule that states no player or couch can publicly criticize calls or they will get fined. There is no "suspend" rule, so he will get fined. Kind of like what happened to Mike Holmgren.
