Throw The Bum Out!

The competition in professional sports is fierce. In particular, football and hockey are very aggressive sports. To play them at the top, you have to have a huge ego and you have to be tough. But you also have to be a professional.

Albert Heynesworth (henceforth to be known as Heinousworthless), a defensive tackle for the Tennessee Titans, stomped on the face of Dallas center Andre Gurode.

Not only was this an unprovoked attack, Gurode did NOT have his helmet on. You can watch the video by clicking here. The stomp is shown at the end of the clip.

If two players get in a tussle on the field and someone lashes out, who cares. People do get frustrated and tempers flare. Penalties usually take care of the problem. People get ejected from games and/or fined for their actions on a regular basis. There is just no excuse for what happened here.

Heinousworthless kicked the guy in the head just because he thought he could. As far as I'm concerned he should be banned from the NFL for his actions. At the VERY least, he should have to sit out the rest of the season and forfeit his salary.

Throw the bum out; the NFL has gone down hill far enough already for the last few years. A slap on the wrist for this moron will only encourage them.
