Whether you think JuJu was right on the hit (everyone presumably agrees the taunting was wrong and likely why he was suspended) is kinda irrelevant. The guys that get to make the rules say it was illegal, he was flagged, he was suspended and is out some cash. Keep doing it and he'll get the reputation Burfict has and won't be able to sneeze the wrong direction without drawing 15 yds.
Don't have to like the way the NFL is going, but you can no longer argue that it wasn't an illegal play.
Dec 7, 17, 05:05 PM #22The NFL is over reacting and now penalizing guys for making run-of-the-mill football plays.
The people that will have the last word are the fans. If the fans are not entertained the NFL will fold. Not For Long league. That's what will happen if they continue down this road twards becoming the National Flag football League.
It sure is a shame that in an effort to address the danger of concussions ( a legitimate concern), they define a block like JuJu's as an illegal hit. I can see cracking down on helmet to helmet. I can see if they eliminate a peel back block away from the play. But this was right where the RB was headed and the WR just stood his ground and Burfict ran towards him. Open your eyes, Burfict! I agree 100% with @woodsrider's comments in post 21. The call was a crock.
The NFL is wrong in making that an illegal block. That is my opinion. And yes, I am old school.

So we agree, absent the two things I mentioned, it was a good block. Other people are saying it was an illegal hit on a defenseless player, etc. nonsense.
