    The fans get punished every preseason game, or mugged, because they pay full price to see the stars play one quarter in a meaningless game no one tries to really win, or cares who wins.

    But that's the topic for another thread.

    My British Perspective on things here.

    Who cares?

    1 Pre-season game...so...he'll probably end up playing in some way or another anyway (perhaps) today

    They could just play him the entire second preseason game so his career won't be set back by years, which some here think his sitting tonight will do.

    yeah I know, but thats harsh, and it is a punishment on the fans as well

    which do you hate worse? being spit on in the chest, being punched in the face, or being cheap shotted from behind from a guy who is swinging his helment after you?

    No, but Titans spitting on other Titans is new.

    if you didn't spit on someone you wouldn't have to worry about a helmet being swung at you

    but thats where I say thats Nickey's problem, he didn't retalitate on the same play which I would have understood and I would have completely took his side if he had retaliated once White spit on him, but he did 30secs after, and not only that he wasn't in the play but came in from behind, swinging his helment- and he is the 3 year veteran Titan in the situation...

    These questions must be rhetorical?

    When players fight at camp, they throw punches, the fight is broken up, and they go on. No lingering news stories.
    When a player spits on his teammate, a violation of team ethics, it brings lingering ill effects, like a cheap shot later, team divisions, unhealthy team chemistry. Lockerroom cancer grows.

    That's why Fisher set this punishment, which I trust his judgement to be equal to the crime.
