Why Gronkowski Should Be Suspended for Late Hit

It was a stunning moment in a game that had already been decided. With the Patriots leading Buffalo, 23-3, late in the fourth quarter, Bills rookie CB Tre’Davious White intercepted a Tom Brady pass intended for Rob Gronkowski, after both White and Gronkowski were very physical during the route. White went to the ground and Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett touched him down, then Gronkowski dove in, driving an elbow into the back of White’s helmet

“First off, I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 [White]. I’m not in the business of that,” Gronkowski said after the game. “I was just really frustrated at that moment.” When asked to explain his frustration, the tight end said, “He was trying to push me a little bit . . . I just don’t understand why there wasn’t a flag. A couple times in the game. They are calling me for the craziest, craziest stuff ever and it’s just like, crazy. I mean, like what am I supposed to do? And then they don’t call that, I mean. It was just frustration and that’s what happened.” In the other locker room, Bills safety Micah Hyde called the move “a dirty play” and it was reported that White, who took his helmet off and slowly got up after the hit, entered the concussion protocol. 

Now it is up to the league
