Should JuJu Smith-Schuster, Rob Gronkowski Suspensions Be Equal? NFLers Disagree

Should JuJu Smith-Schuster, Rob Gronkowski Suspensions Be Equal? NFLers Disagree

Roethlisberger told reporters he thought the suspension for Smith-Schuster was overly harsh, considering Smith-Schuster's hit on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict came on a bang-bang play in the course of a typical football situation.

Steelers wide receiver Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety Iloka have been banned for "violations of safety-related playing rules" during Pittsburgh's 23-20 comeback win in Cincinnati.

Meanwhile, JuJu Smith-Schuster has had his suspension upheld by the same group of football experts, despite barely impacting the helmet of the league's most violent offender when it comes to illegal hits.

Roethlisberger did say Smith-Schuster deserved to be fined for the play, though mostly because of how he taunted Burfict after the hit rather than for the collision itself.

The NFL on Wednesday announced that the one-game suspension given to Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been reduced to a $35,464.50 fine.

Gunman reported at school with 'multiple people shot' - armed police on scene
Sheriff's officials say that the shooter is in custody and that there are reported victims wounded, but it wasn't clear how many. Aztec High School is in the Four Corners region and is near the Navajo Nation , an expansive native American territory.

Smith-Schuster will miss the Steelers' home game against Baltimore on Sunday night. "We already play a high-injury sport", said, via NFL.com.

But Smith-Schuster made the situation a million times worse by standing over Burfict and taunting him. "I didn't mean to stand over him. I was trying to get a big block for Le'Veon Bell for him to get upfield", Smith-Schuster said. The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me. Karma is karma. Karma is in life.

Iloka was suspended for a hit to Antonio Brown's head in the end zone after the star wideout caught a game-tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter. "You do the wrong things, you get the wrong things out of it". I don't know. It's flawed, that's the best way I can put it.

"I like that. I like that", said Brown of the block.
