Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White is not happy that the NFL only gave Patriots cornerback Rob Gronkowski a one-game suspension for his cheap shot on Sunday.

White said today that Gronkowski's hit was dangerous and could have caused a severe injury, and that the NFL's suspsension was woefully inadequate.

"It's a joke," White said. "I don't know what to say on that. I'm laying there, he [hit] me with my back turned. He could've broken my neck. I've got a son to raise."

White also said Gronkowski hasn't reached out to apologize. Apologizing is the least Gronkowski could do for a hit that, as White noted, came after the play, with his back turned, and could have caused a serious injury.

Worst rule in football won't change until it affects a championship game

When the Saints did just that nine years ago to secure a Super Bowl berth, the league abruptly changed an unfair rule that had been hiding in plain sight for decades. It will take that kind of outcome to make the notoriously conservative NFL change the worst rule on the books. There continues to be no good argument in favor of allowing the offense to keep possession when a fumble in the field of play goes out of bounds at the one-inch line but giving the ball to the defense at its own 20 if the ball ends up hitting the pylon or otherwise ending up out of bounds in the end zone.
