    I couldn't agree more with you bud! Regardless even if he does try to appeal it, I don't think he has a leg to stand on...or head.

    The NFLPA has to appeal this, its their job. Its going to be horrible press, and its going to make Albert look even worse, but the Union has to look out for the players. They'll appeal it based on the fact thats its more than twice the previous longest suspension for on the field violence.

    Agree with Nigel. As I said to a buddy this morning, I'd argue for Albert appealing, but he's as defenseless as the guy he stomped on.

    They would appeal it even if it was less than the standard. The Union is sick that way. I don't think they have any idea of what is right or wrong, they just follow the law book to see what will happen for their benefit either now or down the road.

    And sometimes you will see the system set up with that in mind. That way it looks like the NFL came down hard on the player, and then in small print they waive everything off so the players still get paid and still play and the nfl still gets paid too. But one day that little system will backfire, cause someone will write a book about it, and blow the doors off it in front of congress. `
