The NFL needs to add a doubler into the rules. Every time you get a suspension worthy fine in the same season the penalty is automatically doubled.

Basically when he comes back in 2 games and does it again its a 4 game suspension, then an 8 game, just make sure the guy lives on the bench without pay.

The one thing Bill Belichick owes the world an apology for is bringing this loathsome sack of crap into the NFL. Mad

Wouldn't be the first time he brought a "loathsome sack of crap" into the NFL.

Meriweather was an '07 pick, so yeah, technically it would be the first time.

i cant believe the league is backing down, such crap. Move the kickoff line back, no more defenseless receivers, QBs can be hit anytime, because you clearly dont give a damn if you suspend him for this and then take a game back

"The league" did not back down. The appeal officers are jointly appointed by the NFL and NFLPA. Both Birk and Cottrell have reduced suspensions due to illegal hits, so it's safe to say that the opinion of those two appeal officers is less harsh than that of the NFL.

So apparently, Merriweather said "To be honest, you've got to go low now. You gotta end people's career. You gotta tear people's ACL's."

After those comments he should just be banned immediately.

It's worse than just that...
http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/redskins-watch/2013/oct/28/brandon-meriweather-back-suspension-takes-personal/

Quote:
Redskins free safety Brandon Meriweather, reinstated from a week-long suspension on Monday, responded to Bears receiver Brandon Marshall’s insistence that Meriweather be “taken out of the game completely” for his pattern of reckless hits over the years by invoking Marshall’s history of issues with domestic violence.

“Everybody got their opinion,” Meriweather said. “He feel like I need to be kicked out of the league? You know, I feel like people who beat their girlfriends should be kicked out the league, too. So, you tell me who you’d rather have: Somebody who play aggressive on the field, or somebody who beat up their girlfriend? You know, everybody got their opinion, so that’s mine, that’s his.”


“To be honest, man, you’ve just got to go low now, man,” Meriweather said. “You’ve got to end people’s careers, you know? You’ve got to tear people’s ACLs and mess up people’s knees now. You can’t hit them high no more. You’ve just got to go low.”

Merriweather is completely out of touch with reality, apparently. A man with a psychological disability that's caused him to make stupid decisions, who is cleaning up his life is someone who I would prefer to have in the league over someone who thinks that there is no middle ground between giving concussions and tearing ACLs.

So to defend his action, he went to the opposite extreme...sounds like a few posters.

Possible consequence?

Do you think there will be a target on him now?

I honestly hope that every player that plays the Redskins aims to end this guy's career. He is below scum, and should be treated as such. His reaction is just typical for a brain dead moron that does not have the mental ability to comprehend things.

Nothing against the Skins or anyone else, but this guy represents all that is wrong with the NFL. He was one of the key offenders in that huge Miami brawl swinging his helmet as a weapon.

So I'm the only one that sees the logic in what he said? He's saying you can't hit them up high anymore so you have to go for their knees and take out ACL's.

He's an idiot but he's an idiot with a point that's been made here before.
