You do understand the concept of retaliation, don't you? Don't start none, won't be none. Incognito has been starting crap for years and the refs are basically complicit at this point, because they don't do jack about it. At some point, a player has to protect himself if the NFL won't do it.
For some reason, folks on here think that Incognito was engaged in a run of the mill "hands to the face". I suggest they rewatch the play.
Yes, Smith overreacted. Yes, he used a non-football move in response to an extended illegal move by the other player. Yes, he should
get his hand slapped hard, but...
This is the SECOND time that Incognito has 'initiated' with Smith and he wasn't fined the first time
. I'm pulling for every D-Lineman across from Incognito this year. He deserves every cheap shot he gets.
I'm quickly losing all respect for every "news" outlet that shows only the end of the incident and happily overlooks what brought it on
. Bleacher Report and Fox, I'm looking at you!
