I can't wait to hear the reasoning.

Reasoning is that he probably couldn't have the same suspension as Gronkowski!! Too bad they didn't apply the same standard to juju. That said I think this is a positive SBI. Iloka playing Has zero effect on the Steelers. His suspension being rescinded give them one more thing to be pissed off about which I'm thinking could be a positive

So Ilokas agent, some douchebag named Ron Slavin, argued that the head to head contact between Iloka and Brown was caused by AB lowering his head in order to brace for contact. Can someone post the gif of that hit, I challenge anyone to find a lowering of the head, and AB was in the fucking air already. I just cant fathom how that suspension was overturned, and taunting after a legal helmet to chest hit was deemed suspension worthy. Just wow.

I don't normally find myself in a state of awe. I'm usually pretty good at anticipating stupidity from people/organizations that specialize in it.

This has me in awe. Suspending both/either player was already incredibly stupid.

To now only suspend one of them?!? And, from what I've heard/seen, the basis of which is taunting?!?

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow.

I just can't imagine why their ratings are down. Complete mystery.

Ok let's not put ourselves in "hope springs eternal" crowd. We go 7 years between SB appearances and suddenly we are the new Cubs. :lol: This kinda feels like 2010 lots of adversity and we just found a way through- let's hope this one ends with the trophy

If the NFLPA had any balls at all, even little tiny ones, and any capacity for long term financial planning, this next CBA negotiation should be an absolute mess. Their goal should be to burn the league office to the ground and force them to start over.


Buuuut,I’m sure they’ll roll over and take it in the ass, as per tradition.
