  • I think it's pathetic. Madon Rudolph showed malicious intent first. Then Myles clearly sgowed he was in control and willing to defend himself in a malicious way perhaps and Pouncey kicking Myles in the head at the end was clearly malicious. If we're being totally honest here, they should all get similar fines and suspensions. It was a fight. Just because you win or lose a fight doesn't mean you should or should not be suspended. You fought and should be suspended. Bar none. All 3 of them should have been suspended 2 weeks and all should be fined $42k per game they're suspended. Sorry but have you heard Myles speak? He's not a killer. He's an athlete and a professional. He shouldn't be looked down on any more then Mason Rudolph. Frankly, Mason shouldn't be a starting QB with his temperament. He has clearly proven that he can't handle the pressure of losing. Markice Pouncey isn't a dirty player either really. He's kind of an old school guy and he really is tough as nails but he took his retaliation too far as well. But that's just my opinion.

  • Rudolph no longer had the ball he made the pass to the receiver, Garrett had no legitimate reason to 1 complete the tackle and 2. Drive Rudolph into the ground. The instigation was by Garrett, stop pretending like any other player would sit and take that BS then when Rudolph replied to Garrett to get him off him, Garrett used it as an excuse to escalate it further the situation wouldnt have happened if not for Garretts actions.

  • I went back and watched the fight after hearing Max say that Rudolph tried to take Garrett's helmet off and Msc is full of it. And Max, there is a difference between a baseball player getting hit in the head with a baseball while wearing a helmet and a football player getting hit in the head with a helmet. And Max saying that people are over reacting and not saying that Garrett over reacted is just dumb. The

  • Myles Garret still started in all by sacking him so aggressively when he already threw the ball away and there was only 8 secs left on the clock. If you ask me Mason Rudolph wasn’t completely in the wrong with that. Garret was just pissed they lost and he wanted to take out his anger on Rudolph.

  • ESPN and Kellerman are doing their best to solicit views by stirring up Cleveland fans into thinking their guy was unfairly punished. Garrett turned an ordinary football tussle into a long suspension by swinging a helmet. End of Story. No actions by Rudolph justified that response.

  • Max Kellerman - you are incompetent. Myles Garrett started the issue by body slamming Rudolph a good 5 seconds after the pass was thrown. Wake up.

  • You can’t tell me Garret didn’t know that pass was already gone when he put his arms around Rudolph. Then he held on and took him to the ground KNOWING the ball was ground. THAT is what started it because there was 8 seconds left in an already decide game.

It was a completely clean and legal tackle with no malice the TACKLER was restrained and attacked by the person he tackled and then attacked again by the same person while he was being led away once again while he was restrained, the only free hand he had to defend himself with was the hand the helmet was in

  • Garrett should never play in the nfl again. He could of KILLED someone over NAME CALLING. GROW UP. If a black man can call you that and it not phase you, and if a white man would say that word and it "bothers" you, then its not the WORD you have a problem with. Its the color of the white mans skin that you have an issue with.
