        What are you talking about? Finnegan clearly went after Johnson's helmet first in an aggressive manner. Just because you aren't throwing a punch doesn't mean you can't use violence.

          Well, there's that and there's also the fact that Finnegan swung at Johnson's helmet (because he's a dumbass). But yeah, whatever best suits your argument, R/W/O.

            Now Finnegan is going to have an even bigger target on his back from everyone else in the NFL. What an idiot. And dude needs a haircut.

              Looks like both were fined $25,000. No suspension.

                I cannot believe Johnson avoided suspension.

                Wow.

                  I can't recall a player ever being suspended for a fight. You get ejected and fined and that's that.

                  People are seriously making this a way bigger deal than it is.

                    Don't forget that the Texans play in the NFL Network game this week, that definitely had some consideration.

                    • Some guy on the facebook group of AJ whoopin on Finnegan:

                      Should go by Innegan now, since Andre knocked the "F" out of him.

                        I thought about that as well. Can't take away one of the league's premier players....

                        I don't know that Johnson would have been suspended anyways though.

                          unless, of course, you're in the internet tough guy camp regarding the quality of the punches. in which case i guess one could make the argument that the punches were too weak to merit suspension.


                          That fight was the exact same circumstances, verbatim. Crowder was doing stuff to piss of the New England o-linemen. Matt Light got sick of it, ripped his helmet off, and bashed his head in. Crowder ran away laughing. It got covered that Sunday and blew over quickly. Nobody cared by Monday.

                          And I'm not in the internet tough guy camp, either. I just think this is receiving way more publicity than it deserves because
                          a) everyone hates Cortland Finnegan
                          and
                          b) everyone loves Andre Johnson

                            I can't recall a player ever landing 2.5 punches on a helmetless opponent.

                            There is NO WAY Finnegan should be fined as much as Andre based on the actual event.

                            Two things affected this decision heavily:
                            1) It's Andre Johnson.
                            2) Richard Seymour did something that in reality was no where near as violent or malicious as Dre but because it was pretty much the same physical action and didn't draw a suspension just one week earlier, the NFL did not want to take the heat for the comparisons that would inevitably have come.

                            EDIT: I just saw the video you posted. That's fascinating. I think Light should have been suspended also.

                            • Yea, I completely forgot that Matt Light wasn't suspended.

                              But then again, with this new "hits to the head" emphasis - I could understand it.

                              Then again, as I said earlier, you have to have a brain to be concussed...

                              • I don't love Andre or hate Cortland, but the dude was asking for it bad, and got bitched around, even if you don't think the punches were legit, Andre punked him on national TV bad when he was trying to show everyone how rough and dirty he was.

                                It's really as simple as that, he was like that guy that slips and tries to pretend he did it on purpose and play it off. He got punked and was trying to clap and make it like he accomplished some goal.
