RAIDERS-BRONCOS BRAWL SUSPENSIONS HANDED DOWN…….

ONLY THREE MINUETS ONTO THE GAME

1-28-2017


Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree and Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib will each be suspended for two games without pay after their fight in Sunday’s game, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Both players were ejected in the first half of the Week 12 battle, but additional penalties were levied because they violated unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules.

Rapoport previously reported the suspensions were likely due to the fact each player ramped up the skirmishes after things appeared to be winding down.

NFL VP of communications Michael Signora provided a full explanation of the punishment:


Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was critical of the decision on Twitter:

Hard to understand the reasoning for this judgement based on most recent ruling w/ altercation see WR Cin and DB Jax = 0 games suspended
