Indeed, Mason Rudolph is getting away freely, even compared to his own teammates. Privilege indeed, probably BS QB stuff in this case. Too many people operating on emotion and ignoring the circumstances of the encounter. Even in this discussion, you're posting numerous times while ignoring counterpoints inconvenient to your position (relative actual danger of helmet swing compared to punches, 3v1 scenario, the fact that Garrett actually *was* walking away, instigation by Rudolph, sustained aggression from Rudolph). You were even willing to lie about preceding circumstances: That's not even kind of close to true, directly refuted by video evidence. Just as evidence shows Garrett backing off and Rudolph running after him prior to the "assault". While the risk is debatable, I'd have not felt bad for Rudolph even if he did get injured significantly. As I said earlier, if he doesn't like the consequences of fights he shouldn't start them. ~~~ There are NFL players, even outside the Browns organization, who looked at this situation objectively rather than seeing a helmet swing and making a knee jerk response. It doesn't help that ESPN/other outlets are conveniently not showing images of Rudolph grabbing Garrett's helmet, even though they're happy to show the reverse in a "gallery of the fight". Good way to lose respect.
