Dashon Goldson Appeals; Fast Decision ExpectedSeptember 17th, 2013
Bucs safety Dashon Goldson’s helmet-hitting ways caught up with him this week when NFL
warden commissioner Roger Goodell’s minions decided to suspend (and fine) Goldson after yet another illegal hit.
With the Bucs traveling to New England to face Tom Brady and Bill Belicheat, this suspension couldn’t have come at a worse time. If the Bucs fall to 0-3, there is no logical reason to believe the Bucs have any prayer of a playoff berth.
But hold up! Goldson is doing a smart thing. He is appealing his suspension, Twittered Woody Cumming of the Tampa Tribune.
@RCummingsTBO: An NFL official confirms Bucs S Dashon Goldson has appealed his one-game suspension.
This is a glimmer of good news in a sea of ugly. By appealing, Goldson could be able to play Sunday at New England.
The Bucs are going to need all the help in the world. Joe could just imagine Brady exposing Ahmad Black all afternoon.
This BSPN video explains that the Bucs and Goldson have requested an expedited appeal so they can make a roster move to replace Goldson on Sunday.
