Default Kornheiser: Johnson avoided suspension due to Thursday game

Quote:
Wondering why Andre Johnson(notes) and Cortland Finnegan(notes) got off without a suspension for their vicious, on-field brawl on Sunday? Former "Monday Night Football" announcer Tony Kornheiser thinks it had to do with the NFL's self-interests in promoting this week's Thursday night game.

Johnson and the Houston Texans will face the Philadelphia Eagles in this week's Thursday game. A suspension would have kept the star receiver off the field and would have given the television network broadcasting the game less star power to promote. As Kornheiser noted on his Washington D.C.-radio show on Tuesday, the network in question just so happens to be owned by the NFL.

"Do you think that part of [the lack of suspension for Johnson] might have to do with the fact that the NFL, which owns the NFL Network, has a game on Thursday night featuring the Houston Texans, whose only draw is basically Andre Johnson? And I'm not going to say, 'I'm not saying, I'm just saying.' I'm gonna say, I think it does.

"This is a commissioner who sits guys out for multiple games for things that happen off the field -- and more power to him. But this made a mockery of the field."

That's a bold claim, but not an unfair one. The NFL opened itself up to criticism like this when it created the Thursday night television package to prop up its fledgling, self-owned network. There's a massive conflict of interest involved when situations like this develop.

I can see where he is going coming on the heels of a dreadful Monday night game. But this is not wrestling. The league does not decide the winners or losers. They do not influence games in that way.

John McClain predicted that AJ would not be suspended for the same reason on Monday. The NFL is a business and business is better with AJ on the field for that game.

While there may be some truth to that, at the end of the day..... AJ's only other discretion was against who??? Innegan..... because he's a POS.


While we "suck again", most of the league knows what a stud AJ is.

AJ wasn't suspended because he whooped a punk ass leprechaun and nobody blames him.

To me it's something you get when you do your job at the level AJ does without any drama or fuss from him. One of those things where hard work just pays off in the long run.

AJ wasn't suspended because:
1) His reputation
2) The NFL Network game

He threw two punches, and landed them both, to a helmetless receiver. I thought that was an automatic suspension

I thought the same thing, but he is not the only draw, hello, we have the league's leading rusher, a pro bowl qb and a stout defense, uh, scratch that last one. You get my point.

I just hope we don't see a bunch of teams sending out scrubs to get the other team's best player thrown out of the game if the penalty is only $25k and no next game suspension.

I don't want football to turn into hockey.

Thing is predictions or opinions can be based on a facially logical argument and still be totally wrong. We'll never find out if this is true but now it will be repeated for years as the truth.

AJ being a model citizen HAD to play into the decision. Finnegan should give next weeks game check to AJ cuz the NFL couldn't suspend Finnegan and NOt AJ. AJ is everything the NFL wants in a role model. Yes, he lost his cool and had a fight, but some things are worth fighting for or fighting over. I hope Finnegan got a sternly worded message along with his non-suspension...."you've worn out your welcome. Shape up or you'll be shipped out". The man is a punk and AJ punked him out for all the world to see.

Lemme ask the church this:

Matt Light beat the dogshit out of Channing Crowder two years ago, right?

Crowder's helmet was off, Light's was on!!!! Light landed punches, and was NOT suspended. So spare me the fact that Dre wasn't suspended due to TNF. Hell, half the NFL fans don't have the NFL network. Kornheiser has been a douche since he called out my baby's mama, Hannah Storm...*****.

Default Re: Kornheiser: Johnson avoided suspension due to Thursday game

Andre Johnson was going to play on Thursday regardless of the suspension or not. All AJ had to do is appeal the suspension, which takes a week or so to process, he plays Thursday, possibly against the Ravens and sits against the Titans....

This "conspiracy" has no legs, IMO Johnson was playing Thursday regardless UNLESS he himself and Kubiak decided not to appeal to get the suspension over quicker, taking AJ out of Thursday's game....
