Aqib Talib violates suspension by showing up to game (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/09/16/aqib-talib-violates-suspension-by-showing-up-to-game/)


Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times notes that Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=4640) violated the terms of his one-game suspension (http://twitter.com/NFLSTROUD/statuses/24691150405) by attending last week's game. (He watched it in a suite at Raymond James Stadium.)

"Suspended players cannot attend games, even as a spectator,'' NFL director of communications Greg Aiello confirmed to Stroud.

The Bucs could face sanctions because of the infraction. Talib could possibly face future fines. It's a major brain fart by Talib, and even more so by the people around him. Someone should have known the rules and told him.

Dumb. Why is nobody paying attention enough to know that's a no-no?

I know it hasn't really been anything major but he really needs to stay out of headlines for the wrong reasons and focus on becoming a better player. He's one of their only young really good players and he should be setting an example here soon not acting like a rookie still.

someone will have to explain why you can't buy a ticket for a game if suspended

Yeah, kind of a mixup by both Talib and the staff around him. But I think it's kind of silly to ban players from the stadium on gameday, but it's a rule so whatever.

He was probably high as **** and didn't realize where he was.

Remember all those character concerns about Talib before he was drafted so high? Maybe they were correct.

NFL.

A football league, but you can call it a prison.

Dumb move. Lied about it when pressed. Said he watched it at home.

This better not result in another suspension. Probably a fine.

How far can the NFL take this? He wasn't playing or on the sideline, what's the big deal?

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to CC.SD again.

The game was blacked out, how else was he suppose to watch it?

That's right. Here at Miz-zou, we take care of our boys before we send them off to the League. Permanent suspension for digital (finger) penetration of an unwilling party (that's what the law calls it anyway) is quite serious and he won't be playing for MU any more. Aqib ran a muck all over Lawrence and you never heard a word of any major suspensions. I know of some stories about him at The Out House that are pretty bad. Way worse than Derrick Washington.

Looks like Leroy Hill did the same thing.

Pretty dumb that they're not even allowed to sit in the stands for a game.

Seems like a rather ridiculous rule but if it is a rule you need to know about it and not break it, pretty simple that.

What a dumb rule. Oh well, I guess we'll get the fine and move on.

he should have just bought a normal ticket and watched in the stands, ballcap pulled low

he should have watched it from home rather than show up.



surely, I am not the only one who understands that.

pretty sure if a game is blacked out you can't watch it....even on directTV as long as you are in the blacked out area

Despite having the SuperFan package, I am not sure, but from what I can tell, unless it's being broadcast on a local channel, I can watch every other game.

Directv still blocks it. I've seen it happen with Raiders games.

see, I live in Dallas, you best believe that the Cowboys would never be blacked out.

It's called game film, I'm sure as a player he could get his hands on it after the game was over...
