I think Rudolph deserved a game, but IMO Garrett started it, by driving MR into the ground and then not getting off him. The league, which is generally full of crap, would have confirmed i, had they not come down hard.
As a Raven fan, I would be fine, if they disbanded both franchises.
I wouldn't go that way. I get that Rudolph helped escalate the situation and it wasn't very smart on his part. But as you said, Garrett started it by driving him into the ground well after the ball was out. Put that situation on the Ravens. If the same thing happened and Garrett went after Lamar Jackson because he got heated with Garrett would you think Jackson should be suspended because he didn't back away? Garrett took the initiative to yank the QB up by the facemask and pull off his helmet. That alone would probably draw a suspension or at least a fine. But using a helmet as a weapon cannot be tolerated. Rudolph clearly needs to be smarter in that situation, but that doesn't change the fact that Garrett assaulted him by the legal definition. You can't have that.
