So they've got all these rules essentially castrating the game, and yet the penalty for cheap hits that are nearly career ending for opponents is just short of trivial. Apparently, if you're a Patriot, you can attempt to break someone's neck after the play without worrying about a penalty.
There are a cluster of players crossing the line in a manner we haven't see in decades, and the penalties are minimal fines and 1-2 game suspensions. I think we'll see a lot more of these hits and in short order, someone will either be a paraplegic or dead, especially as the season comes to an end and games become meaningless to some teams. JMHO.
They've substituted the big hit within the rules of the game for the cheap shot well outside the rules.
Thoughtful semi-non-linear subtleties are difficult for us most informeds but not quite the smartest fans on the Internet, Bonz.
Goodell just signed a 5 year extension.
The game will accelerate on its path to Chernobyl
Gronk is made of glass, so just have a 300lb interior lineman blindside him one time and he will be done for the season. Problem solved.
That’s what I’m saying. Of course then Bonz’s point becomes more visible, as “police actions”are taken on by scrubs, like goons in the NHL.
