    Gronk shouldn't have played again this regular season for what he did. His was far and away the worst.

    I'm too biased between JuJu and Iloka to compare there, but I think they both deserved their suspensions. It's shitty to see one get to skate.

    The league decided after careful review that it didn't warrant a suspension. I agree.

    JuJu got suspended for the taunting imo.


    He and Iloka were both just playing football.


    Gronk should've got multiple games imo. What he did wasn't football.

    One included taunting of an opponent.

    Ron Slavin, Iloka's agent: "While we still believe George did nothing wrong on the play and the helmet-to-helmet contact was a result of Antonio Brown's lowering his head as he braced for contact, we felt and argued that a suspension was particularly egregious."

    Now AB's fault....You can't make this shit up.....

    Doesn't matter how much Brown lowered his head, that was going to be massive helmet to helmet contact no matter how far Brown moves his head to matter what direction.

    I honestly do not think Iloka was trying to go helmet to helmet and hurt Brown, but I also think that in the way he tried to dislodge the ball he went in too horizontal and created too much helmet contact. He deserves to be suspended a game because of how much helmet to helmet there was regardless of intent.

    Run through the tackle will prevent so much head to head contact. These guys are just too anxious to dive and blow up players now. Stay on your feet. Do not leave your feet on tackles that are going to be big collisions (if you have to dive to catch a guy, different story). Keep your eyes on the guy you are tackling at all times, just like watching the ball make contact with the bat.

    Gronk only got one game cause Evans got 1 game. Evans was the same shit. He ran across the field at full speed and jacked a guy in the back. He could have broken his neck. He knew what he was doing and it was planned form the second he took off. Only difference if White was hurt (back at practice today). If Evans got more, then Gronk would have too.

    I agree Gronks was pure shit, just like Evans and would have been fine with a couple games out. However, these guys got hit in the pay check too. Gronk missed on pay cause bonuses were included in playing time, he fucked his team over and his reputation is now dog shit and a scumbag (well deserved IMO).

    So I ask all those who want Gronk gone for the year and are so outraged, were you this pissed off and called for the same shit on Evans??
