    That was a crazy scene, Garrett obviously snapped. Should make for an interesting rematch when they play again in a few weeks.

    I can see where Rudolph could have a civil case for assault and even criminal charges. He doesn’t come to work with the expectation of being whacked in the head with a helmet.

    Roofers swing hammers all day, but if one worker gets pissed at another worker and decides to whack him in the head with his hammer, wouldn’t that be grounds for both civil and criminal charges? I can’t see that situation not being escalated into the courts, why should it be any different just because football is a sport?

    Not saying I would agree with Rudolph filing a lawsuit against Garrett, just thinking that if this had happened in any other situation in the workplace the person on the receiving end of would most certainly pursue damages.

    Mason has already said he won’t file charges.

    I personally think if he did, his reputation would be tarnished with players in the league

    I don't think he is liked to start with.

    All the Titans wanted to fight when Mary would take a hit. Like 3 guys react when Mason gets thumped with his helmet.

    Must not have explained my point well.
    We are absolutely in agreement that swinging the helmet is not part of the game, I’m talking about a lawsuit.

    If Rudolph were to sue, he probably does have a case, this would open the door to lawsuits over any helmet to helmet hit/injury occurred.
    I don’t for a second believe that our judicial system would see using the helmet as a weapon and using the helmet as a weapon during actual game play as any different. It may be common sense to fans of the game, but between greedy lawyers wanting money and marginal players that don’t necessarily make millions, I could see that being the slippery slope.
    Then tackling becomes weaker than it already has.

    Not yet that I’m aware of. But I didn’t remember any outside the field other than the CTE case.
