The next guy is going to think twice before he "frustrates" Gronk, though, isn't he ?

As big as Gronk is and the way he dropped down with his forearm to the exposed part of the back of the guy's neck could of easily snapped it. Surprised he didn't tbh.

One of these days we will all witness a tragic death on the field.

there is simply no way anyone can justify that what Gronk did is ANYWHERE NEAR what Juju and Iloka did.

it's incomprehensible to me that those suspensions should be the same.

Goodell is a joke.

Gronk should have a 3-4 game suspension minimum. His actions were after the play, on a defenseless player. Still incredible to me that he was not immediately ejected, and now only given a one game suspension. There are lines you simply can't cross.

Yeah, that was an after whistle blind side cheap shot, Burfict got 3 games for a preseason boarderline legal (definitely not dirty) football play. The NFL is ridiculous.

So let me get this straight? You want players to be injured, possibly for weeks or permanently? There is no way you can convince me this is a common thought among fans. Fans don't like to see players hurt, especially their own players.
Please tell me how it's part of the game to block a player with your helmet to the opponents facemask? Now I'm not sure how Burfect didn't see Schuster-Smith, but that block was totally unnecessary. And if you don't see anything wrong with the George Iloka hit on Brown, then we have no common ground to ever discuss. That play should actually be the film clip to show that this is exactly what won't be tolerated moving forward.

When is a dirty hit considered assault? How much time needs to go by before a player could be charged with assault? Would it be considered assault if a player speared a coach on the side line on purpose? Now I am not talking about the scuffles during the games. But the blatant late hits out of anger and the only intention is to hurt the other player. Gronk was angry and tried to injure the other player. If I was angry and plowed someone behind the head on the street I would be charged with assault.

I don't think any hit should be illegal. Blitz football rules. Anything goes.

I don't like this analogy, because I don't think a player could bring criminal charges for a game they are playing in. There is some known perrils and I just can imagine an assault charge would stand.

But the league and union should definitely respond to these incidents.

Wasn't there a hockey player charged with assault for bashing another player from behind in the back of the head and smashing his face into the ice as he was knocked out?

i literally haven't even seen that hit so i have no idea. however, i've seen the Gronk hit, which is why i believe his punishment should've been worse.

and before you say "how can you say that if you haven't seen both?"

Gronk's was not a football play, not during a football play. Iloka's was during a play. totally different.

My comment had nothing to do with what you said about Gronk. It was more about your post about Iloka after the game.

I personally want to see the crazy stuff. Like in that movie "last boy scout" where the dude drew his gun and started shooting the defenders. That would be awesome!

I don't agree with the assault charges thing but am in agreement that the 1 game suspension is absurd.

The reason for PED's being banned is in large part is because it allows you to get big, strong, and fast enough to hurt players who aren't cheating. The suspension for a 1st time offense is 4 games.

What Gronk did was a dirty play, well after the whistle, purely designed to hurt a player abiding by the rules. He accomplished that, giving him a concussion which could negatively impact him in all manner of ways from minor to major for the rest of his life.

I don't see how it's not at least the equivalent to a 1st time PED offense. 4 games would have seemed a logical suspension. 1 is a joke.
