NFL might consider doing this. If they do add that rule from the college rules, I'm all for it.

After Monday, the NFL doesn't have any choice. Also, the refs really need to starting ejecting players and not wait for them to commit two unsportsmanlike penalties. Remember a few years ago, when Takeo Spikes and some guy were ejected for grabbing each other even though neither threw a punch? That turned out to be Takeo's last game and I hated it ended under an ejection that the refs made in their discretion. The refs have the discretion to throw players out if they feel the player is being a major problem. Don't know why they don't use it when things obviously get out of hand like in the game with Josh Norman and ODB a couple years ago.

They were ejected by John Parry in 2012 in week 17 in San Diego.

i have felt for years that many players should have been ejected from games in the past for their actions. the teams and the league have been too soft on the players and their on field antics. late hits, fights, targeting, etc. all need to be clamped down on and hard.
