The Main Event



Why is it that Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz won’t be fined for their little stiff arms while Ray Rice gets a $7,500 bill for his – one that was so offensive it wasn’t even penalized on the field.

On the surface it looks to me like Schwartz overreacted but then who knows if Harbaugh said anything to the Lions’ skipper after the exchange. Some of you may recall that Schwartz was a Ravens assistant during the Marchibroda years – one of which Jim Harbaugh was the Ravens QB. There are rumors floating about that the two never really liked each other back then.

Hey how about a 3 round bout for charity guys?

Proceeds will go to the RPA.

I’m sure the Commish could get behind that…

Just more evidence that good sportsmanship is a thing of the past! From histrionics after almost every play to dancing in the end zone, the NFL encourages this behavior in the name of....."entertainment"! And, for a league obssessed with preventing head injuries and concussions, the fact that they haven't prohibited ceremonial "head butts" is mind boggling! Polamolou apparently suffered a concussion after a tackle last Sunday and, when he got up, he was immediately head-butted by a team mate! So, Harbaugh and Schwartz's post-game "dustup" with no league sanctions comes as no surprise.......

I looked into the rumors regarding Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz' relationship and apparently the two aren't exactly chummy. Word is Schwartz took a verbal shot at Harbaugh during a coaches dinner in Indianapolis, I believe at the time of the combines.
