    Merriweather deserves a 4 game suspension for the hit on Lacy alone. This would be his 3rd violation and the suspensions should increase each time.

    You were doing fine until the second sentence, which rendered the rest of your post moot since you can't even keep your facts straight. Just have a gander at Rizzo's big, animated sig and you'll see he didn't "wrap it around his neck."

    Some good commentary here on Lacy.

    If the NFL wants to really stop this stuff and not be a party to future lawsuits then thugs like Merriweather need more than a fine that they will write off on their 1040 as a charitable gift. We all know that suffering concussions is not a temporary thing. There's a cumulative effect. We've lost Lacy for one game and probably another because a cheap shot artist like Merriweather has been allowed to do this over and over. Disgusting!

    I just heard not only is Merriweather not apologizing, he is appealing his fine. IMO his intent to injure is obvious from his actions. The NFL should have suspended him 2 games to get his attention. 1/8th of a players annual compensation for repeat offenders would begin to get their attention. Since the NFL is unwilling to do that, I'm hoping he suffers a season-ending injury as a result of his intentional spearing.
