From Ian Rapport:

 

NFL: Michael Crabtree of the Oakland Raiders and Aqib Talib of the Denver Broncos have been suspended without pay for two games each for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules in Sunday’s game between the Raiders and Broncos.

Can't you increase the font, I can barely read that, wtf DMD

I think it's no secret Talib is an ahole, can't say about Crabtree. 

I thought you were being sarcastic. On my phone it's huge, but on the PC it's tiny.

Yet in the closest incident I can think of somehow OBJ only got 1 game and Norman a fine.  Keep up the good work Goddell! :wink:

 

Was an official knocked down in that fight?  I think that's a part, as well as them going after each other after the altercation in the prior game, and not stopping after being separated.

 

Nothing Goodell does will make some fans happy, they're going to criticize every decision. He's the figure head who fans can hate, and owners can keep smiling and making millions. Until the fans who hate Goodell really stop ALL SUPPORTof the NFL.

Suspensions reduced to 1 game each, per Schefter.

That makes no sense. They have perhaps the biggest and longest fight of the year and they get their suspensions reduced. God of the NFL is fickle.

Some thought they shouldn't be suspended at all based on "similar" on field fights.

In this forum?

 

Yes several posts in this thread, though most were questiong why it was 2 games, or why some others were not suspended similarly. This one sure seems to say there should have been no suspension.

Most of these are more the "why 2 games" or "why it wasn't in line with other suspension", including a post you made (last link below).

Sure seemed to me like many here were criticizing the suspension and saying it was wrong in some fashion, mostly too high. Maybe its just railing against the actual or perceived unfairness of NFL punishment.

Steve, c'mon man.  Not one single post above literally saying they should not have been suspended.

This would be more on target.

If it would have stopped after the extended block into the stands maybe. But to run across the field and start up again was a suspension level ruckus.
