Please, you of all people are falling for the Adele felt threatened by the bat excuse the Giants's PR people put out to try and prevent the suspension?

What was he afraid the refs would let Norman take the bat with him on 3rd and long and bash Beckham with it?

The bat thing is a dumb, immature part of Carolina's pregame ritual, they've done it all year but not until Adele Beckham lost her cool did anybody pay any attention to it. And if it scared him so much why didn't the Giants have league officials do something about it during warm ups, like take the big bad bats away?

NFL 2015 Part 2: There's a Flag Down

Imagine if Odell had dislocated something reaching for an excuse like that. Could have ended his season altogether.

Did I say I was trying to excuse his behavior?

As do multiple Panthers for their pregame behavior.
He absolutely deserved to be suspended. He acted like an immature punk. He needs to be more professional than that. This isn't the first time he's acted like this when people have gotten under his skin. He needs to understand that it's going to continue as long as he reacts to it.

What Carolina did pregame doesn't change that.

What Beckham did also doesn't change that what Carolina did, and apparently does, is bush league bullshit, especially in a league that pretends to care about it's image in relation to violence.

One person being wrong doesn't excuse the other, and vice versa. They're all full of shit.

I wouldn't be surprised if OBJ won his appeal and was just fined instead. Hopefully, this is a lesson for OBJ to not let his opponent get inside his head. Josh Norman won that battle. He took OBJ completely out of his game. I wonder if the NFL would consider ejecting a player automatically if they got 3 personal foul penalties in a game.

Beckham should be suspended. Overturning it would be a joke.

But it is the NFL, so it's certainly possible.

Carolina's players should be, at the least, heavily fined if not suspended in their own right, and a strong message should be sent down that this is not acceptable behavior.

But again, NFL.

Inexcusable behavior does not excuse other inexcusable behavior. Beckham's irrational and dangerous behavior needs to be punished, and he needs to cut his shit now and maybe worry about winning a fucking game every now and then.

There are no winners in this. Only assholes.

Hahaha you've gotta be kidding me. Where are the other incidents of players feeling threatened, then? Where are other players lashing out? Why is it, again, the rules need to be changed because one person threw a fit and acted like a child.

The Panthers have been doing this all season. Show me the other examples of teams being pissed off and I'll change to tune.

As it stands, no one else behaved this way. But let's go ahead and blame the Panthers for an immature child's behavior.

Holy shit.

Please... Point to where I blamed the Panthers for Beckham's behavior, as opposed to bashing his own childish bullshit.

And the bat was used once prior to this game. Once. In pre game introductions. In week 14, one week prior to the Giants game. So that might have a teeny bit to do with why nobody has complained about it prior to this week.

What Beckham did was bullshit.

What the Panthers did was bullshit.

Because one is bullshit doesn't preclude the other from also being bullshit.

Aqib Talib had to serve his suspension for poking someone's eye, so I think it will stand.

I read an article that had some title like "football player suspended one game for antics" and I think that's totally a bullshit title. It was more than "antics." It was Suh level bullshit that deserves more than a single game.

There's a certain defensiveness implied when you say "well, so and so fucked up...HOWEVER, this person (insert transgression here)." It makes it sound like the first mistake is the lesser of the two or is somehow excused by the latter.

But yeah, I get that's not what you were trying to say.

Sexism and homophobia rolled into an attempt at an "insult" nobody over the age of 15 should find funny anyways. What's not to love?
