Why ? Why wasn't the Calgary player suspended, intent to injure.

You Rider fans are SO delusional.......this was NOT an intent to injure, it was NOT a helmet to helmet hit, it was NOT taking a shot at a vulnerable player. It WAS a shoulder hit which, unfortunately, contacted Roosevelt's head when Roosevelt, HIMSELF, lowered his head. Roosevelt was NOT in a vulnerable position----as a ball carrier, he should have expected to be tackled, and was. The hit was penalized, because of the uproar, and whining by the big crybaby himself--Duron Carter. Peace out!!

I think non-Rider fans such as yourself posting on a Rider blog are delusional and choose to turn a blind eye. The league is trying to cut down on injuries to players, one way is tackling when a player is vulnerable. Roosevelt was vulnerable catching a pass across the middle. That's why it was a penalty, and because rules are not set in place yet to fine a player on a hit like that there isn't a fine.

Roosevelt takes another step and is able to assess the situation before he is hit it's not a penalty.

Carter has a lot of talent... I wish he wouldn't make it so hard to cheer for him.

Hopefully we don't have another game where he gets us more penalty yards than receiving yards this week.
