IFWT_SMith and Incognito 3

I think Antonio Smith is lucky for the punishment just handed down to him from the NFL for smacking a Dolphins player, Richie Incognito, with his helmet. I mean really? That sh*t looked crazy. Check out what the NFL decided just a short time ago & the video is below if you missed it…




The NFL will suspend Texans defensive end Antonio Smith for one regular-season game and Houston’s remaining two preseason games for forcibly removing the helmet of Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito and then dangerously swinging it at his face, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

He was also expected to be fined for the incident.

Even though the incident took place in a preseason game, the league decided it was appropriate to discipline Smith by forcing him to miss a regular-season game and to forfeit that game check.

Smith declined to talk about the scuffle, telling reporters after the game that he “took a blow to the head. I can’t remember.”

Smith’s history is another factor in the decision.

Smith was fined $21,000 last season for kicking Incognito, a penalty that was reduced to $11,000 after Smith appealed, saying he was retaliating to Incognito’s intentionally twisting his right ankle.


Via TMZ:

No blood no foul in the case of the violent helmet swinging incident between Houston Texans Antonio Smith and Miami Dolphins Richie Incognito — because Incognito is willing to let it slide … TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the Dolphins offensive lineman tell us he has no plans to press criminal charges for the vicious altercation during Saturday’s preseason game.

We’re told Incognito’s totally fine, so at worst it was probably a grazing shot — but considering NFL helmets weigh as much as 6 pounds of hard plastic — Smith could’ve done some serious damage.

Houston police and the Harris County Sheriff tell us they would only take action against Smith … if Incognito filed a complaint.
