C'mon man. I even finished the post with saying I'm not defending Gronk.
For Smith-Schuster, being immature is no excuse. He was fined and suspended for an illegal hit and then taunting a player while standing over him. In the same game where his own teammate might have had his career ended. And yet he re-enacted the very thing that got him fined and suspended. Yesterday Thomas Davis laid out Davante Adams in a similar way. Davis went to the bench and buried his head in his hands and looked like he was ready to walk off the field. Smith-Schuster chose to glorify what he did by incorporating it into a celebration.
I don't care how young you are, you have to know that isn't ok. I'm sure he'll be hearing from the league again. And it is a shame, because he's obviously a special talent as a player.
Well i wouldn't agree with the pot meet kettle. Shuster is a good kid actually, very mature, knows he did wrong. Don't be quick to judge him just yet, he still has time to grow up and I'm confident he'll learn from his mistake. He's very physical and was trying to stick up for his teammate but he went overboard and he knows it. At least he's got some dog in him.
Gronk is just a completely different animal. What he's been about on and off the field doesn't even compare. His vicious shot that landed him a suspension wasn't even within the context of the game, it was cowardly. He's made a lifetime of knucklehead decisions so whatever man, just think it's not fair to put the young man in the same discussion with this piece of work known as the Gronk.
I'd be curious to see what you think the lifetime of knucklehead decisions are. He's one of the most active NFL players in terms of community involvement. He's never spent a dime of his NFL salary and has it all tied up in reportedly smart and safe investments. He's never been in trouble off the field. Sure, he parties. So does 90% of every professional sports league. But he's never crossed the line with it and gotten in trouble.
He may act like an overgrown child on the field with the way he celebrates, but who cares? If you don't like to see him celebrate, stop him.
As I said, there is no excuse for what he did in the Buffalo game. It was disgusting and he was penalized accordingly. But if we're going to let others off the hook for one bad action, he should be handled the same way.
I've got no issue with his celebrations.
Going nowhere with this. Go ahead buddy, be the ambassador for the Gronkster. He's a great player. Great game. Maybe we'll see you guys the in the playoffs although I probably wouldn't want that misery again.
