    Vincent Says Taunting Not Considered In Smith-Schuster Suspension, Says Punishments Consistently Fair

    Funniest thing I've read all day.


    On Tuesday, James Thrash, the NFL’s Appeals Officer for on-Field Player Discipline, denied the one-game suspension appeal of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Because of that, in addition to the outcome of a few other hits that took place in Week 13, it has led to several speculating that Smith-Schuster’s appeal was denied mainly because the Steelers wide receiver stood over Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict after he made contact with him with his helmet in the head and neck area. On Wednesday, however Troy Vincent, the NFL’s Executive Vice President of Football Operations, said during a conference call with the media that taunting was not a factor in the decision to suspend Smith-Schuster.

    “Taunting was never considered, at least from our office,” Vincent said. “It was the act of hitting Vontaze Burfict in the head area. The taunting was not considered. Are we sending a mixed message? We’ve been very consistent, fair, firm.”.........

    WTF?? The NFL reduced Iloka's suspension to a fine. He his H2H was intentional and after the play. How can they reduce his punishment and stand firm on JuJu's suspension for a H2H during a play while at the same time saying the taunting had nothing to do with it?

    It won't come cheap, but George Iloka's one-game suspension has been wiped away.The league announced Wednesday that appeals officer Derrick Brooks has reduced the Bengalssafety's punishment to a $36,464.50 fine.
    Iloka was flagged for an illegal hit to the helmet of Steelers wideout Antonio Brown on a game-tying touchdown catch in Pittsburgh's 23-20 win over the Bengals on Monday night.

    He says it wasn't the taunting but yet no player had EVER been suspended for a crack back block before. "Consistently fair"? Troy Vincent obviously doesn't know what those words even mean.

    I need to stop reading this shit because the more that I read, the more it pisses me off.

    If Goodell's punishment is consistent and fair, then the 2017 Cleveland Browns are a Super Bowl contender

    I'd like to know why Art hasn't said a single word about this?
