    If Sapp only got a fine for that crap he pulled last week, I'd say no. But since this is a Patriot, probably :rolleyes:

    Jacobs obviously did something to deserve what he got. Of course, thanks to the pack of retards pressing buttons for NFL Network's production, we'll never know.

    That wasn't a move with great danger of causing an injury.

    Players are not-suspended for much worse.

    I think this will just be a "Second offense on the season personal foul" kind of fine.

    Maybe I'm being too much of a "homer" here but I didn't really think that was an intended poke in the eye. I saw it as a "touch" rather than a full on poke intended for the top of the nose, more than likely just to wind him up. Or maybe I need to see it again...

    He stuck his finger right through the mask. He should have known better.

    That he did, but it's all a bit dramatic. Going off the comentators you'd think he gouged it out. Was more of a wind up than wanting to blind the kid. Your point is correct though, the bigger picture is he shouldn't have done it.

    It appeared to me to be aimed at between his eyes, which is actually where the finger landed.

    Still, it looked very bad, and Vince is going to have learn a hard lesson over that mistake.

    Yeah, I don't think it was a legit attempt at poking the eyes, NFLN showed a different angle of it and he had his hand more in a pointing figure than poking, assuming everyone pokes with two fingers for both eyes.

    If he had been seem by the refs, he definitely would have been thrown out of the game. One can hope that the NFL only gives him a fine. IMHO, a suspension is indeed warrented.

    He didn't injure Jacobs so I don't see a suspension coming. The fine should be around Sapp's tho.

    Well, I'll take your word for it. A Steeler fan knows better than anybody what a punk plays like. They have long, long, long experience watching punks.

    Re: Could Wilfork Get Suspended For That Poke To The Eye?

    That is quite true. It is much easier for fans of other teams to be impartial. BTW, the idea that Wilfork doesn't deserve to get suspended because he failed in his attempt to blind the other player is pretty insane.
