Brandon Meriweather appeals his two-game suspension

Usually when somebody decides they will appeal a ruling, they have merit behind it. Usually. But for Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather, I’m not sure he has much of a case.

The bruising hitter, who was suspended by the NFL on Monday afternoon for two games thanks to repeated on-field offenses will appeal his suspension, this according to Alex Marvez:

@Redskins S Brandon Meriweather officially appealed his 2-game suspension, source tells @FOXSports. Date of hearing not immediately known.

Meriweather is one of the dirtiest players in the league and is essentially nothing more than a head hunter, looking to injure the opposition despite his suggestions that he’s nothing like that.

Many would argue that his two-game suspension is relatively light considering the repeated offenses which lead to Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall even suggesting he may need to be kicked out of the league.

Either way, this is an appeal that is going to fall flat on its face and may never see the light of day once he’s informed that winning it will be nearly impossible. If he doesn’t give up the ghost, Meriweather should be on the field for the Redskins next game if the appeal isn’t heard in time.
