I agree. I think a penalty is a stretch. Suspension is gross.
That's freakin' BS. I paused it at impact and his shoulder is the first body part to impact the WR. This is the kind of crap that will eventually ruin the game of football.....
That's bs. He led with his shoulder NOT helmet. It's football and it's physical. I played for many years. With the way things is going you may as well just go to flag football. There's an obvious difference between "launching" head first and just making a hard hit. Everybody that plays knows well before what it's all about. If you don't like the physical part then don't play. RTR
How many QB's did Fairly have to body slam before he got suspended for a half a game??? I hate that rule. DB's headhunting is part of the game. I guess he should have let him score instead and patted him on the butt.
I think its garbage. They should suspend the QB for hanging his receiver out to dry like that IMO.
we should all just give them flags and the QB's pink jerseys for no contact at all. the suspension on this one is ridiculous ... i have seen worse with nothing said at all. he landed are hard shoulder tackle to the other players upper chest. clean hit in my book.
Looked like a player playing football to me. RTR
Someone explain how your supposed to hit. That looked like good football to me. The whole game might as well go to 7 on 7 fag football , if suspensions are levied out for that.
Back in the day, I ran a 3.9 in the 20
Agreed that it shouldn't be a suspension, but Mark almost never leaves his feet to behead someone. He prefers to explode through you standing up, allowing him to step over you like Darth Vader boarding Leia's diplomatic transport.

Do not agree with suspension at all.
BS. Looks to me like he may have even led with his shoulder. You are taught to try and separate that receiver from the football!! Or at least I was taught that way back when it was big boy football!!
Looked good to me. Looked like he hit the the guy in his chest with his shoulder pads. I don't see the issue. Was he flagged after the play? If not, what ground does the SEC have for suspending him if the refs didn't see a problem with it.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
That hit did not deserve anything. That was a good physical hit, this is football not soccer.
Let's just put flags on them or play two hand touch. That is crap to suspend him for that.
Pause the video at the moment of impact. Elston led with his shoulder, hit the receiver square in the chest, with only the top of his helmet making contact with the other player's face mask. The hit was legal and the SEC is in the wrong for suspending him, ESPECIALLY considering no flag was thrown on the play.
Looked like a good, legal hit to me.
There was no way to let up from that hit. As a former FS of 13 years, if I thought that I couldn't make a play on the ball in the air, delivering a vicious blow was the next best thing. The person who made the decision to issue the suspension has only played kick ball as an organized sport. Playing football is a choice. It's a CONTACT sport. Suspending the player for that hit is like suspending a MMA fighter for making the opponent's nose bleed.
Disagree with you on this one. Lead with shoulder, hit his chest, this is football not two hand touch
Looks like a good play to me. Lead with his shoulder into the chest/shoulder of the receiver. If he would have played the ball he would have had a pick.
I did not see ANYTHING wrong with that hit!
What was the reason given for the suspension?
