    "Wondering why Kornholio is no longer on MNF? Current NFL players and fans that believe AJ did the right thing to put Corty in his place, think it had to do with the NFL's self-interests in keeping monday Night Football watchable w/o having to mute the tv...."

    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.

    Let's just call it being BENROTHLESBURGERED and be happy the NFL decided to shine on us for once.

    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.

    Exactly. I'm sick of hearing about other reasons.

    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...*****.

    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....
