Nice thought - only it was the NFL that suspended him, not the franchise... At least according to the link provided above...

well then that brings up the anwer...the NFL doesn't really care who they are playing against- the league suspends players when they want.

Wasn't this the "beat up the guy with the laptop at Denny's because he looks like a nerd" incident?

That should be a one game suspension for assault and 3 more for being a moron...

What do we have to do to get an idiot player suspension rule? Oh wait...then the NFL would have to play 7 on 7...nevermind...

I think the point of it is that the incident happened BEFORE the season and Manning met with NFL officials in week 2 or 3. They waited until the NE game to suspend him.

I can see the argument for it being an AFC game so it doesnt matter and that is why they chose this week but as someone who never finds a conspiracy he doesnt like I find it odd that they didnt supsend him against the Jets.

I certainly believe that there was something behind suspending this game. Maybe they felt like they could only suspend him one game but they wanted it to hurt as much as possible? I dont know but it is pretty fishy.

Charles Barkley spit on a little girl in the stands in the middle of a game.

Barkley's awesome. ;-D

To be fair, Barkley wasn't aiming at the little girl, he was aiming at some ****er yelling racial epithets at him, but his aim was off. Also, the guy he threw through a window happened to dump a plate of drinks on him and his party (I believe Clyde Drexler and two women) first. I'm pretty sure even some of the guys on this forum would've done worse to the punk if he pulled that crap with them. Back to Manning, even as a Bears fan I didn't want him to come here. Insulting and cursing out a guy for using a laptop, and then jumping him with friends and literally beating him into unconsciousness for asking management for help is a whole hell of a lot worse than anything Chris Henry did. It's not even close. People literally get killed everyday for doing a hell of a lot less to people than what Manning and his dip**** friends did, and I can't believe people are pissing and moaning about a one-game suspension for something that would get most people 15-20 years in prison. :-t

The reason it took this long to make a decision was because Manning wanted to wait until his trial stuff was over with and he also filed an appeal. He's claiming that pleading no contest wasn't because he's guilty, but because he didn't want to deal with a full trial and possibly miss a whole bunch of games. He wanted the NFL to get all the details and make a informed decision.

In reality, the NFL's decision came pretty quick. His appeal and everything was finished either late last week or early this week, and it took the NFL a couple days to hand down a 1 game suspension. So I don't really think the NFL waited until an important game to suspend Manning. The whole AFC game thing looks mainly to be some rationalizing by the Bears. I don't think the NFL cared one way or the other which game Manning got suspended for.

Didn't Leonard Little kill someone with his car while drunk? I think that is the worst.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
