    But there is this part of me that wishes Andre Johnson had connected with that shot he threw at Finnegan ... would've been lights out ...

    Love seeing AJ with emotion. Can't wait to see what he does to him in the next game. Guarantee Finnegan won't make the same mistake....GO AJ

    Finnegan has had that coming for years. AJ finally had enough and raped Finnegan. It's been a long time coming and I only wish it would have lasted longer.

    Rodney Harrison didn't get a suspension for hitting Big Ben last week, so why would Andre? Especially when Finnegan threw punches, too.

    :headhurts: What the vugg was that?! As much as I dislike Finnegan André lost his cool and shouldn't have. Knowing how cool André NORMALLY is, I can't help but wonder what the HELL Finnegan must have be saying/doing all game to make the man snap like that. AJ doesn't get rattled that easily. I've lost a little respect for the guy. I still think him a class act, but this is clearly beneath him and not one of his shining moments.

    ...although I have to be honest, I would have loved for him to have done this against the Cowgirls.

    For two fists to the face? I don't know. Maybe Johnson gets a hand slap considering his rep.

    I just don't understand why yall would like this. It is a HORRIBLE example to set for kids. Telling kids its perfectly ok to knock someone down and take a couple of shots as the way to resolve conflict is a poor message.

    Plus, this is a team sport. AJ SHOULD be suspended for a game or two. So, he will hurt the team's chances against the Eagles and Ravens. Those were going to be tough games. Without AJ those are essentially L's.

    Agreed. I would like to see AJ address the media and apologize. He should say that he made a monumental mistake and that fighting has no place in football and life in general.

    Did you see the play??? Finnegan came after him HARD with a push to the head and didnt have any plans to quit... basically attacking him. He did what 99.9% of all MEN would have done at that point. If anything, I have even MORE respect for AJ.

    Do you really think we have a chance to beat Philly or Baltimore with or without AJ?

    I thought that was Richard Seahorn who hit Roethlissburger? Part of me wants to joke and say I haven't seen anyone get hit that hard since that Asian stripper tagged Bill for stuffing Thai money into her G-string, but given the gravity of this situation, this is going to have some ramifications.

    What kind of example does hockey set? It's a sport where the refs actually
    back off, and no one is assigned to the penalty box until a player drops
    to the ice.

    I could think of a couple reasons why such a double standard exists, but
    I'll leave it alone...

    Not arguing that Finnegan didnt deserve it, just sayin that when the league reviews the tape they will see Johnson rip off Finnegan's helmet and throw and connect two punches and also rips the refs hands off of him.
