Third String But Playing on Special Teams
Free speech is under serious threat because a majority of people don't even know what free speech is. Free speech as long as it is not offensive is the exact opposite of free speech because the dominant group can determine anything it wants to be offensive.

You're ****ting all over your integrity.
This thread is about to be locked soon anyways but, guess it's best not to have these threads.

I haven't even attacked either player here lol and somehow I'm the one that has done something wrong. I dunno dude, may as well agree to disagree or something.

Summary of my argument is if either did what they alleged to have done it is really really bad.

How about we get together somewhere and you can shout racist stuff at me while I swing a football helmet at your face. Then we can find out which one actually deserves punishment.
If there were racial slurs it doesn’t absolve Garrett of nearly killing a guy with a helmet. Not in the least bit.

This is what ideology does to people. I bet he truly believes that a word is worse than physical assault.

I get that you have joined the mob.

Strength in numbers.
I asked you a question and you respond by trying to accuse me of....something?

I asked you to provide the details on why you believe Rudolph is punk. Do you have any reasons or not?

Maybe he said "give me back my helmet, neighbor" and it all escalated from there?

He said, after the tackle:

"Excuse me kind sir, please release me, forthwith! Alas, our grand skirmish seems near an end and I desire to commence preparations for our next engagement, as my fellows and I are indeed 'on to Cincinnati', as we say."

From what I've read here,

Rudolph did nothing punishable by suspension. Trying to rip off a defender's helmet, hitting him in the groin is just not enough. I was told that if garrett had been hurt, THEN Rudolph would have been suspended.

Garrett didn't use the race card until he lost the first challenge. I agree that this was a Hail Mary. Rudolph should have been suspended on the basis of his actions, not on the basis of his speech.

For many in PITT and here, folks like Rudolph are folks to be looked up to. Whatever rocks your boat!

Lmao at people saying the helmet could've killed the punk QB, that it was attempted murder, and so on. Talk about overblowing the whole incident.

First, Garrett was wrapped up by the 330# DiCastro, who was the only sane person there, and was pushing him away from Rudolph.

Second, Rudolph came after Garrett as he was being manhandled by the huge OLman. Garrett didn't have free reign to get at Rudolph unimpeded because DiCastro was in the way. Rudolph used DiCastro as a shield to get to Garrett and when Garrett saw him coming at him, he swung the helmet.

Third, even if Garrett had unimpeded access at Rudolph with the helmet, it is extremely unlikely that any real damage could have been inflicted. This also assumes Rudolph, an actual athlete, wouldn't have tried to duck that is. Modern helmets are designed to absorb impacts and thus, have a very thin hard plastic layer (3 mm) followed by a bunch of padding made of foam like material. This wasn't some heavy solid core metal or even plastic. Hardly a weapon.

Obviously, you can't have a black man swing an object at a white person on National TV and upset the redneck fan base, so it was overblown to justify the extraordinarily unjust and overboard punishment. Pleeeease, even the token NFL mouths in the media followed the prescribed script to a tee, like Whitlock, Sharpe, and SAS. Of course, the sheep followed the NFL script hook, line, and sinker. Everyone feels good that the dangerous black dude was put in his place. Crisis averted. LMAO.

I wasn't sure that this thread would find a post that could top what was already here for sheer folly. But then this one came along, and blew the others away!

So you believe you can kill someone by swinging a modern NFL helmet at them?
