I'd believe it if they had suspended Incognito as well. Or it they made a habit of fining offensive players for similar events the way they do defensive players.... but they didn't & they don't.

One day in the future, some other hot-headed defensive player who played the same dirty offensive player for the last three years is going to connect with that helmet & the NFL won't have anyone to blame for it but themselves.

When a player like Andre Johnson looses it & puts a beat down on someone in the middle of the game, that should wake you up... there is obviously something "unfair" about what's going on.

Same thing with Antonio, granted he's got a history of letting his emotions get the best of him. But this is a preseason game. Means absolutely nothing. How is someone going to get this mad over a meaningless game? & for them to suspend Antonio & give Incognito a pass.... yeah, you're telling the players to "handle it" on the field.
