In Topic: Official Detroit Lions thread

Today, 05:16 AM

Lions looked good, but how much of that is Detroit actually playing well and how much is the eagles being downright awful is unclear.

Chip kellys attempt at putting an nfl team together (he's coach AND gm) is turning out to be hilareously bad.

I hope he gets suspended. The only way to rid the game of crap like this is harsh punishments. With everything we know now in terms of concussions and CTE, head and neck shots need to be zero tolerance.

I feel the same way.

He does have a hearing tomorrow, so we'll see what comes of it, but if they ever have an epidemic with tragedy related to cte/concussions like the NFL has been dealing with they're going to change real quick.

Also, on the NFL concussion/CTE topic, I keep seeing stuff about that concussion movie with will smith that says it's scathing towards the NFL. I hope it brings more awareness/outrage to where the NHL will feel some heat to crack down on these types of things before anymore tragic happenings occur.
Shanny seemed like he was doing a terrible job as the head of the DoPS, but compared to this guy he was damn near perfect.

I think it's worthy of something else. Not only did he purposefully cross check him in the back of the neck, he also interfered with him in the corner, and he continues with another cross when he's on the ground (and may have also lightly kicked him). To me, that's just unsportsmanlike disregard or disrespect for another player's wellbeing. He obviously thought Crosby went down too easily, but that was a pretty forceful crosscheck and dangerous.

I want to say that I'd be surprised If he doesn't get a suspension because of it, but the DoPS is such a joke right now that nothing shocks with them anymore. So I'll just say I'll be disappointed if they don't suspend him.

A $2,000 fine is nothing to these guys and doesn't discourage it at all.

Edit: DoPS announced that Brandon Dubinsky will have a hearing tomorrow for it.

Drew a minus 1 tonight. Surprise.

The wings only had one player who was worse than him in that category tonight, and that was Brendan Smith at -2.

Larkin is amazing and exceeding expectstions, but I wish he'd take less penalties.
It seems like he's in the box at least once every game.
