Roethlisberger: Unfair Of NFL To Give Smith-Schuster Same Punishment As Gronk

09 December, 2017, 13:24 | Author: Lucy Floyd
  • JuJu Smith-Schuster kept busy during his suspension with Primanti Bros. and Call of Duty

In his letter to Smith-Schuster notifying him of the suspension, Runyan noted that Smith-Schuster violated Rule 12, Section 2, Article 7 which prohibits unnecessary contact against a player who is in a defenseless posture and Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1 which prohibits unsportsmanlike conduct.

Bengals safety George Iloka was also suspended for a hit to the head of the Steelers' Antonio Brown on Monday night, but reportedly got it reduced to a $35,464.50 fine.

Minutes later, Iloka launched head-first at Brown as Brown hauled in the game-tying touchdown, drawing an unnecessary roughness penalty. "Your conduct following the hit fell far below the high standards of sportsmanship expected of an National Football League player". It's absolutely absurd. Like I said, it's Steelers vs.

Gronkowski delivered a late hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White while he was down following an interception, and then on Monday night Smith-Schuster laid out Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a peel-back block and then stood over him after the hit.

"I don't like to compare players and suspensions, things like that. It was a guy getting ready to make a tackle, a much bigger football player". The league will decide whether to fine Shaw for running into Boswell, or to accept that it was just an ordinary case of a player jumping offside.

Patrick Stewart open to reprising Jean-Luc Picard for Tarantino's Star Trek
That, of course, means more scope in terms of swearing/violence, but not something so usually associated with Trek . A-list screenwriters gathered together by Abrams to pitch their takes on Tarantino's story include Mark L.

"Obviously, we don't like the taunting, standing over him, things like that", he said.

"I didn't think it was warranted, I thought maybe a fine", Roethlisberger said of Smith-Schuster's discipline.

"So I don't think anybody wants that, Coach Tomlin or myself or the clubs. So that's not the look we want in the National Football League".

Both players should be back for the Patriots' and Steelers' massive AFC showdown in Week 15 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Smith-Schuster was flagged for both the hit and the taunt, although only the taunting penalty was enforced.
