for those of you who “DoNt WaTcH tHe SpOrTs BaLl” this was from a game last Thursday between the rival Steelers and browns. Myles Garrett (the guy in the orange) tackled the Mason Rudolph (helmetless guy) after the play ended and wouldn’t get off of him. There was a scrum and he ripped his helmet off. Afterwards, he swung that helmet and hit the guy on his head. He’s suspended for the remainder of the season and possibly part of next season.
@Jesus Chrysler, sounds to me like he should be in prison for assault with a deadly weapon. But sure, lets punish him like a child and take his "games" away
Well he does essentially become unemployed for a few months, losing a few million dollars and likely endorsements
@Guy Fawkes, in the NHL there are fights regularly. In baseball people have charged the mound. Theres a difference between running up to someone in the street and smacking them with a motorcycle helmet and this. They're not taking away his "games" they're taking away his job... the QB could press charges but hes choosing not to. Do you know anything about the situation?
@spelcheck , most people who i know that watch hockey, myself included. Do so for the fights. The gmae is secondary. They also tend to not get out of control beyond the initial blows
And there is no difference in those two cases of assualt that you just mentiond.
If the other guy had simply thrown punches at the man then i wouldnt give a single shít. But its a whole different level of escalation to hit someone in the most vulnerable area of the human body with a solid object like a helmet.
And im well aware thats how they make money, they make money to throw a fvcking ball. More than enough money to encourage you to be a good sport.
And no i dont know the ins and outs, but i havent said anything regarding the fine details of the situation. Because baseline is that he escalated a situation beyond a point that most people deem acceptable.
And so you mean to tell me that you think its a reasonable punishment essentially give him a vacation? I doubt he needs that money anyway.
@Jesus Chrysler, oh goodness youre right. Im sure hell have to start begging at the corner store because of this backlash
@Guy Fawkes, you sound so ignorant
@Jesus Chrysler, I heard that Rudolph was trying to rip his helmet off first and I don’t remember who it was but somebody started stomping on the guys head when he was on the ground shït got pretty intense
Yeah he was kind of ripping at his helmet AFTER Garrett was mailing him on the ground. And the second part is fake news. Unless you are talking about the brawl that happened after the helmet attack.
@Jesus Chrysler, yea it all happened at the same time didnt it
@sgc6610, the brawl happened after the helmet swing
@Guy Fawkes, not every nfl player makes tens of millions of dollars a year and has a ton of endorsements some guys like him only make maybe 500,000 a year and yes that’s a lot of money but when u play a rough sport like football your career might only last a few years without injury and if u do get injured it might only be 1 year so u have to make that money last the rest of your life whereas someone like me that works construction I might make 100,000 a year but my career can last up to 30 years so in a lifetime I’m making more then him and I have a pension and annuity and all that but he has that salary and that’s it so when he retires he has nothing except the money he made so a lot of athletes make ridiculous amounts of money but there r a decent amount who really don’t make much and don’t have any other skills to fall back on cause they dedicated their whole life to their sport
@spelcheck , ok so if i understand it correctly. If i assault a man in my place of work, then not only should i not be charged criminally, but then i should just be sent home for a few weeks after which i can come back without any kind of serious repremands?
Yeah im the ignorant one for applying that set precedent to all situations.
@sgc6610, yes, at the rate that they spend their money thats not a longevious life. But i dont control the rate that they spend their money they do. Lots of people survive off of much less for much longer. And nothing that youve said makes any of their personal choices any less their fault
@Guy Fawkes, u r because not every situation is the same where do u work like I said I work construction I’ve seen fights on jobs I’ve fought a guy on the job nobody got in trouble but if u work in maybe an office type job you’d get in a lot of trouble if u weren’t ignorant you’d realize that not every case is the same
@sgc6610, were you swinging fists or were you throwing bricks at eachother? If you threw a punch and he hit you with a hardhat would you still feel the same way?
Thats why i said had they just thrown punches this would be completely irrelevant. Its not just a fight anymore once you use an implement to cause harm (an implement like a helmet).
People fight all the time, its healthy to get it out. But once you start allowing people to escalate a fight beyond the healthy outlet it becomes more dangerous than beneficial.
"Im ignorant because not every situation is the same". ive pointed out the exact reasons that i believe this was worse than other "fights" that ive seen. All youve brought to the table was "youre wrong and dumb bye bye".
@Guy Fawkes, I just had a fist fight but I saw a carpenter get beaten with a pipe guys going at ppl with hammer and nobody really tried to hit somebody with a hard hat cause they don’t really hurt me and my friends used to smack each other with hard hats as a joke
@sgc6610, i only mentioned hard hat as a direct reference and comparison to the helmet. Ive been "turtle fvcked" many a time haha so i understand.
And so would you not agree that the guy who was trying to attack people with a hammer shouldve been fired? Or that the guy who beat the the carpenter shouldve been jailed? And thats even acknowledging that both of those instances are far worse than this fight.
@Guy Fawkes, yea they should have but at the same time not everything gets seen and ppl come down with amnesia
@Guy Fawkes, guy came to a job and shot and killed his foreman once that can’t be overlooked though
@sgc6610, ok then, i hope ive explained myself a little better at this point.
I can understand if we still disagree. But regardless i wish you some merry meme scrolling and i hope your next meal is the greatest damn thing youve ever tasted
@Guy Fawkes, might be a little misunderstanding on my part but regardless of my next meal thanksgiving is coming up and u can’t go wrong with a nice turkey leg and some gravy hope yours is as great as mine
Water sucks. Gatorade is better
@BigJohnson86, waaaaaater sucks. It really really sucks.
@Grybo, ne ne ne needle dick
It reminds me of skipper hitting gilligan with his hat in gilligan’s island
