Why did Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree get 2-game suspensions?

The NFL suspended Crabtree for two games for his role in a fight with Denver cornerback Aqib Talib in Oakland's 21-14 victory on Sunday.

Both players are appealing the suspension, per Rapoport.

The result was that the repeat chain-snatcher and chain-snatchee were each suspended two games for violating the NFL's unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules, because of an altercation that went beyond just chain snatching. The No Fly Zone corner will be eligible to return on Monday in order to prepare for the New York Jets. Raiders guard Gabe Jackson also was ejected after making contact with an official during the incident.

Michael Crabtree's brawl with Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib was all sorts of insane.

Monday, the National Football League announced its original decision after the two players got into a scuffle during last Sunday's game. On the very next play, as Crabtree continued to block Talib after the play was over, Talib snatched Crabtree's chain, and the two continued to tussle outside the field of play, exchanging punches and triggering a sideline skirmish. First Broncos players came to Talib's aid, then Crabtree's Raiders teammates jumped in. That incident involved just those two players, while this one turned into a larger melee, as Runyan wrote, that "endangered various sideline and League personnel, including one of our Game Officials who was injured trying to maintain control of the situation". Talib stood up, grabbed Crabtree's helmet and threw it off.

But in the NFL's words, Talib and Crabtree's actions "have no place in this game, engender ill will between teams, and lead to further confrontations".

"If you see the play, I didn't defend Chris", Talib said.

On the original play that set all of this off, Crabtree kept blocking Talib well past the spot that media are supposed to stay behind on the sideline. "He punched Chris, next play he came [and] punched me". "So, I mean, so he was on whatever he was on".

"The series of flagrant violations for which you are being disciplined began less than three minutes into the game", Runyan wrote, per NFL.com.

"You deliberately ripped your opponent's chain from his neck just as you did past year when you played against him", Runyan said of Talib. Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green threw multiple punches at Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey earlier this season and the National Football League didn't suspend him.
