McCain received a $9,115 fine for his above punch. No suspension, just a negligible fine.
The problem I have with it is that it is so transparent. It's so obviously an attempt by the league to make some desperate attempt to screw the Pats that's pretty much laughable. I guess they missed the part about the Pats winning a Super Bowl last year without Gronk?

BB should bench him anyway. THAT would go a ways...
Who gives a **** about respect from opposing fans? You all continually cry about deflategate, spy gate or what the **** ever gate you want.

This suspension could be a blessing in disguise. Rest Gronk and keep him away from the dirty Fins and have him fresh for the Steelers.

The silver lining take is definitely my take.

Has anyone mentioned the shuster Smith hit last night? I think that was just as bad if not worse than gronks. He laughed and hit berfict in the chin and then stood over him taunting him. Then mentioned it this morning on nfl network for 2 seconds then said of but he issued and apology so no biggy

Didn't watch the video yet.....but what happened before the punch? I'm not defending the punch......but gronks hit was worse.

Please....it's so far from the ridiculous conspiracy theories. It was a dirty hit, on a defenseless player, out of bounds who supposedly suffered a concussion.

I don't approve of Gronk's actions, I'm just heartily sick and tired of the double standard when applied to the Pats. Some idiot said Gronk is the dirtiest athlete in the NFL. Guess he never saw Suh or Burfict at work.

As am aside, I do like Dola's spiky attitude this season. He's not taking any c**p from DBs. Classic Patriots next man up. Edelman and his F.U attitude out, Dola gladly steps in.

I predict the Pats game in Pittsburgh is going to be a dirty one. And the Pats offensive players won't take a backwards step.

When JuJu gets suspended for his hit on Burfict I'll agree with you. When Suh or Alonso or Burfict get suspended for the next glaring cheap shot they dish out I'll agree with you.

Not until...

They're both very similar in the sense that the person being hit really didn't have a way to defend themselves. I'd say the actual Gronk hit was worse because it obviously wasn't a football play where JuJu's was just an illegal block.

It becomes a wash in my mind when you factor in the taunting. That's such a bad look it makes it hard to defend the intentions (much like the Gronk hit.)

If I was in charge of punishments, they'd be very similar. We'll see.

Ridiculous, just heard Gronk is going to appeal. It was a dirty late hit, man up and play against the Steelers the following week. asshat

Are you kidding me?!?!? That Block was spot on. I don't like the taunting but I give the kid a break for taunting that asswipe Berfict.

every punt he is helmet to helmet with guys whose numbers are in the 20's and 30's - I suggest that helped the Dirty Dolphin to lose it and punch a helmet.

Mikie, you're not allowed to contact the neck or head on those kind of blocks. They changed that rule when Hines Ward broke that guys jaw.

Hit was illegal. The taunting afterwards killed the benefit of the doubt I might have given him.

He hit him in the chest and rode up, that was a thing of beauty. It is not JuJu's fault Berfict is half a sissy and cant take a hit.


I loved that Ward hit to, I believe it was to a Raven..... and now I wonder what happened to Jaric, I thought you hated the three teams involved in this post.

I think you're letting your dislike of Burfict cloud your judgement.

It's a peelback block with contact to the head and neck. Textbook illegal hit followed by textbook taunting.
