2 suspensions for dirty hits in Bengals-Steelers game

SMITH-SCHUSTER AND ILOKA SUSPENDED AFTER FIERY MNF CLASH

JuJu Smith-Schuster deserved to get tossed from Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals for his vicious, dirty hit on Vontaze Burfict (watch here).

Iloka's agent Ron Slavin said they felt a suspension was unnecessary for Iloka, who was flagged for unnecessary roughness on Monday night after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown that occurred in the end zone. Postgame, he said: "He shouldn't have stood over him..." How about a one-year subscription to the ultimate sports streaming service in Canada, with access to every NFL game, as well as soccer, tennis, hockey and now, Canada's men's and women's national FIBA team. The NFL explained he was suspended for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head. Burfict would be carted off the field shortly after and it was not a good look for JuJu.

Smith-Schuster said after the game that he didn't regret the block but didn't intend to hurt anyone and was sorry for standing over him. "The Competition Committee has clearly expressed its goal of "eliminating flagrant hits that have no place in our game" and has encouraged the League office to suspend offenders for egregious violations such as the one you committed last night." . "Specifically, with 7:10 remaining, on a passing play to a running back, you lined up a defender and delivered a violent and unnecessary blindside shot to his head and neck area". Smith-Schuster will return for a critical, and potentially high-scoring, game with the Patriots in Week 15. But according to Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, that block wasn't even the worst part of the play.

Far Cry 5 and Other Upcoming Ubisoft Titles Hit With Delays
Ubisoft has delayed three of its games, saying they got the idea from the positive response to Assassin's Creed Origin's year off. Saying that, though, if this extra production time results in Boomer digging up loot crates for players, I will take that back.

A suspension is the only response the league can rightfully give to what Smith-Schuster did.

Although there is no doubt that the Steelers rookie made helmet-to-helmet contact with Burfict, the hit still occurred before the whistle.
