This has spiralled so out of hand its absurd. A 2 game suspension for a head shot is a good precedent and one that should be upheld as the season goes on. After enough of them are handed out it becomes the new norm.
This was a good move by the league but people asking for 5-7 game suspensions (or even longer) have either never paid attention to football discipline or they’re blinded by their own green coloured glasses.
As a Ticat fan I don’t condone the hit, I 100% agree that a suspension is in order and I said the second it happened that 2 games appealed down to 1 is likely what will happen. The idea that the league was going to somehow send a message with a 5 game suspension is so far fetched its laughable.
If you want these hits out of the game, suspend more players and more hits, not suspend 1 player longer to make a point.
Football players are unlike any other breed - a 2 game suspension is massive for these guys. And if Simoni does it again this year? I expect a 3 game suspension.
