    He was struggling (understandable given the way he was tackled) and tugged on the the other guy's helmet while still on the ground.

    If you start with a dull lout(s) and train him to aggression, this is what you get.

    I'll probably spend tomorrow cleaning guns and binge watching season 3 of "The Crown" on Netflix. The NFL turning into Political puppet theater soured me a lot more then some kid who Loses it and gangsters up with a helmet. I liked football when it was just a game.

    At this point I'd rather go down to the local high school and catch a game. At least there most of the kids are just doing it for fun and know they aren't going anywhere. He'll, I remember my high school most of the players, even the ones going to college, knew that their senior year was their last season playing the game.

    What are the odds against an 8th grade boy starting formal football when he starts high school ending up the next Peyton Manning? One chance in 1,000? Or in 100,000? Or one in a million? Or even worse?

    I don't fault anyone for hitting a Steeler.

    Myles Garrett the person is well known in my area as a heck of a good guy. Something caused him to completely lose his cool.

    I've seen some outstanding people do things that they would normally never do, until something inside them snaps. They've had enough and they explode. The difference here is it occurred live on national tv.

    I don’t watch movies or sitcoms or network drama,I watch sports.

    because I want reality, not some director’s interpretation of history or something with liberal social commentary.

    Sports ain’t perfect and like anything nowadays it seems the progressives try to message it, but one can turn the volume down and still get the gist of what’s happening.

    I've worked with a lot of people on a lot of jobs. I've never seen felony assault on a coworker. The difference is not live tv. He got caught.

    I have to jump in here, a bit late, but I have to ask about this. The QB Rudolph made a grab at Garrett’s helmet, in what appeared as if he was trying to rip it off initially. Granted that attempt was unsuccessful. But to me that would be a triggering event. Yet I have not seen or heard of any accountability for that action.

    I am not saying that Myles Garrett is innocent, what he did was way outside of the line; but he was provoked. Where is the accountability for Rudolph’s part in this? Hell, I don’t think that MG even connected on that swing, or if he did it was barely glancing at best. But MG’s loss of control and overreaction had to be addressed. Am I the only one who sees this?

    I would submit that the extent of the punishment tends to be based upon a dubious sliding scale. Re: Donald Bertuzzi’s bulldog of Steve Moore. Initial consequence was severe, however all was repealed and in the end was not really that severe. Certainly no where near as severe as Moore’s long term consequences from the same incident. (For the record, Steve Moore struggles with concussion symptoms to this day, and will probably never be able to work again.) But being a big name NHL star apparently has it’s privileges. Could be a bit of nationality bias of each player also influencing the final outcome, as well. (Bertuzzi is Canadien, Moore is an American, any guesses as to Gary Bettman’s nationality?)

    You're joking? He did, but why would it matter?

    I based that statement on the fact that you never saw the qb’s head recoil as if it had been struck. I later saw a different angle, and so would revise my statement, contact was made with the helmet. But that is not that important overall, the intent was to do great harm, and that must be addressed.

    However I still believe that that the QB has culpability and that should also be addressed. But that probably will not happen.

    Im wondering why the guy was so mad that he grabbed his helmet.

    The Browns were ahead and winning, close to the end of the game. Wtf was he mad about?
