    Maybe the NFL will just suspend him for the rest of the season because they got so many views and so many people were talking about it.

    In a nutshell, Bengal's defensive back Dale Hackbart attempted to block Denver Broncos' wide receiver Charles "Booby" Clark. After the play had passed them by, Booby, "acting out of anger and frustration" struck the back of Hackbart's head with his forearm. It was later discovered that Hackbart had suffered a career ending neck fracture. Without ruling on Booby's liability, the court held that tort law is not inapplicable to sports and a finding of recklessness is required to impose liability. In other words, the player could sue another player, at the very least in Colorado as the case arose out of Colorado.

    Haynesworth was suspended 5 games for his stomping incident. This is pretty comparable to Garrett's, in my opinion.

    You can't try to kill people.

    Those were some of the sawftest kicks I've ever seen. It looked like Pouncey knew he had to do something, but he really didn't feel like defending a dude who threw 4 picks.

    I just offered the moolah bet you’re wrong. I think 6 games (the rest of the season) is likely.
