    Re: Ed Reed suspended 1 game



    My issue with it is this - I understand by the wording of the rule why it's a personal foul. I don't agree with it but by the letter of the law it's a penalty. What I don't understand, and what gets me pissed off, is that the 3rd violation suspension should be designed for someone who is intentionally trying to harm someone or flagrant personal fouls. So now what's to stop players from ducking on purpose now to get a couple cheap unnecessary roughness calls to get someone suspended?

    Have a feeling Ed will not take this in stride. Looking forward to him lashing out against this assclown that serves as dictator of the NFL.
    We all should of seen this coming...after the "love affair" with Harrison, it was made clear repeat offenders will be fined and eventually suspended. I dont agree with the rule, but I actually thought to myself, hmm, thats quite a few hits leading with the helmet for Reed this year. Next man up is Pollard, he will get a game too if he isn't careful.

    Again, totally disagree, but this isn't new.

    Ray Anderson hands down suspensions, not Goodell. He's the one that made this decision.

    They're just saying black/white it's his 3rd PF for hitting in the head and therefore he gets suspended. Reed will appeal (because of the lost $400K+) and the leagues says they'll make a decision before the SD game.

    Basically just Ed Reed being a thug. He either can't or won't tackle anymore and is more of a liability out there than an asset. This is actually doing the Ravens a favor - forcing the team to put a better athelete on the field for the Chargers game at least.

    I have no faith in the appeal being overturned.

    I can't believe that he's being punished for a hit delivered back in 2010 though.

    Wow. You can question whether he is a liability or not, that's debatable, but calling him a thug? That's ridiculous hyperbole even for you. Lmao.

    Re: Ed Reed suspended 1 game

    Not sure I understand this one. I'm sure the Ravens have people going through these types of penalties over the past few years to find others who have had "three in three years" or whatever the criteria is, but haven't been suspended.

    I can not believe that Reed is the first guy to accumulate three of them over a three year period since this has been a point of emphasis. Maybe I'm wrong, but doesn't seem likely...

    How many hits to the head has Ryan Clark had since 2010? A half dozen?

    Ryan Clark anyone? I mean, the guy had a special helmet made just so he could keep leading with his head.

    That was as flagrant a helmet-to-helmet as you're likely to see. The only one I can think of that was worse was James Harrison going high-to-high on what's-his-name, the recent Browns QB.

    Some of you sound like Steelers fans. You can't go high-to-high anymore, and that's what Ed Reed did. If that play had gone the other way, with Ike Taylor blowing up Torrey Smith or something, some of you would have had no problem with this result.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    So does he now have a clean slate? He can lay 2 more big hits this year before the 3rd gets another suspension. 1 Steelers again, 2 Broncos. He better make them count.

    Re: Ed Reed suspended 1 game

    A quick Google search shows Clark with two defenseless receiver penalties this year and I remember he had one on Dickson last year, so where is his suspension? That's with like 3 minutes of research.

    I'm sure Clark isn't the only one, too. Reed will win his appeal.
