Knowing the power the NFL has, he will appeal the ruling, it will be knocked down to 1 preseason game, and Obama will issue as public apology for how mistreated blacks are in the NFL.

Because of Burfict's body of work.

He has a history both in college and he pros of this kind of behavior.

Remember when he was twisting ankles after he whistle during a game against Carolina?

Even the Ravens called him out for his dirty play.

In Saturday's game alone he:

1.Attempted to stomp on Ramon Foster's foot after the whistle.
2.Left the bench to engage Steelers after the Shazier hit on Bernard.
3.Gave Ben an extra knee to the shoulder on his sack, after the whistle.
4.Layed out Brown with a hit to the helmet that was way more vicious than Beckham on Norman.
5.He was in official's faces all night and at times the Bengal coaches were trying to contain him because even the sideline reporter was saying that he was out of control.

Burfict isn't a passionate player that just got caught up in the moment, he has a history of dirty play and out of control behavior.

BTW, if you look it up you can find a video of Pacman Jones taking Amari Cooper to the ground, ripping his helmet off, and then slamming Cooper's head into his own helmet in the Bengals/Raiders game this year.

Couple of real class acts...

Burfict will maim or kill someone if not checked. Playing linebacker and with his size, speed and tempermant it's bound to happen. Sure his history played a roll as well. With Beckham a slap fight may break out.

6. He spit on Decastro. That's why during that one play, Decastro blew him up and drove him ten yards down the field and landed on him.

unless he was previously fined for it by the NFL it plays no relevance.
just because you guys think hes a thug and beats up alota steelers players is a weak argument.

Thug? No, he's a piece of crap. Hope he gets what he deserves.

Whether he's a thug or not doesn't even matter. The NFL is loaded with thugs. The point is, he is selfish and mentally weak. His actions directly contributed to his teams loss.

.

He has been fined many times by the NFL for his out of control play.

He was fined $31,000 in 2013 against the Packers for hitting a defenseless reciever (James Jones) and striking Ryan Taylor in the groin.

In 2014 he was fined for twisting both Cam Newton's and Greg Olsen's ankles in a game against Carolina.

Just a few weeks ago he was fined for diving at Roethlisberger's legs.

And then his masterpiece, the Burfict Storm if you will, on Saturday night.

Tried to stomp on Foster's foot after the whistle...

Drives his knee into Ben's shoulder after Ben was already on the ground and the whistle had blown.

Spit in Decastro's face.

Ran onto the field along with Hill to engage Steelers after the Shazier hit.

Was in officials faces all night.

And then....the finish touch....driving his shoulder into Brown's helmet.

Beckham may have been out of control and committed an egregious offense, but he has no history that is anything like Burfict's which goes all the way back to college when he was diving at Matt Barkley's knees and head butting Oregon State's QB, Katz...

Burfict was benched by his college coach because he kept racking up personal fouls as well.

beckem getting a 1 game suspension was out of the ordinary because it was a first time offense.

it usually takes an increasing series of fines before a 1 game suspension is even on the table.


even if one time burfict was fined ,2 years ago, for a hit on a defenseless player it does not warrant a 3 game suspension.
this will get appealed down to a 1 game suspension, that is well deserved.
however when you look at past precedence of nfl fines and discipline ,the nfl came down heavy on both beckem and burfict

I still can't get over him running into the tunnel after the INT. It was downright embarrassing. Most NFL celebrations don't come off well in my eyes but that was the dumbest most juvenile one I have ever seen. Especially when you take into account the games final outcome.

Didn't Antonio get fined for jumping spread eagle on the goal post?
Birthdefect should have been flagged for delay of game also.
A fine should be forthcoming

With Harrison, it was right after the new rules, and all the stuff he did was related to actual football related stuff. With Burfict, this is just not the case. If the AB hit was the only thing, I'd say a fine, maybe one game. But it's not. Spitting on Decastro. Stomping on Foster after the whistle. Trying to fight the Steeler defense by COMING OFF THE SIDELINE. Trying to break Newton and Olsen's ankles. Striking another man in the groin (a CLEAR violation of Man Code, btw). None of that is actually related to the game of football.

Oak, as Steeler fans, we are very accustomed to physical football. We love it, and we respect it. I have a ton of respect for the Ravens defense from the first decade or so of this century. Yeah, I despise them, and they hurt us. They also, for the most part, played within the rules. The games were just so intense and physical that there were a lot of huge hits and injuries. Ray Lewis broke Mendenhall's shoulder--clean play. Ray Lewis is a clear HOF player, respected by teammates and opponents alike, with amazing talent. Burfict is just dirty, rather than that good. I would have loved to have Hines Ward Saturday night to block him. That would have made Burfict completely fall to pieces. It's different when a hit happens that is outside the rules, but could be reasonably expected to happen in the game of football. Burfict goes so far outside that, a three game suspension is warranted.

Here's the thing fellas, and I'm sure y'all know this, but it sums quite easily to this. Many, Many, Many of these guys didn't grow up in your average, middle-class neighborhood. They grew up in the midst of drugs, thievery, and violence. Here's another shocker. Many of them are Dumb. Dumber than a doornail with respect to intellect. They happen to have extreme athletic gifts that most don't, and that means they get paid multi-millions of dollars to put it on display. Many of these guys, if they were absent the extreme athletic gift, would be gang-bangin' on the streets, and turning to crime to make their cash. That's not stereotyping, that's fact. "Us" folk pay large sums of money to watch them put their talents on display. "Them" folk don't care one iota about you or me.

Nor do we really care about them, beyond their ability to perform. Most of us won't object if they stick that needle into Ben's shoulder so he can play on Sunday, or if they push the concussion protocol with AB, despite the fact that we are well aware that their lives after football will suffer for it.
