That's what the evidence shows.
That's not what his mouth says though.

His mouth can barely formulate a complete thought.

I'm curious as to how far the NFL's policy of 'repeat offender' goes back. Some of the players fined and tagged in the ESPN article are 'offenders' from last season.

Considering how often players get fined for these hits, I'm starting to wonder if sacking the QB leads to a fine...Seems like a knee-jerk reaction to what is going on.

Anybody think the players might hold out for a rule change due to a CBA not being in place yet?

I have grown up watching a sport where a "tribunal" to punish those who break rules has made the game legitimately worse to watch and support and I hate that another sport that I watch is starting to head down that path.

You have the rules on the field for things that happen on the field. The only time I will ever support fines or suspensions is for things beyond those rules, like players who stomp on other players or for swinging punches. There is no place for that, but someone who hits a QB late is penalised in the game, especially a hit as pathetic as that one which he quite clearly pulled out of.



Are we watching the same play? He was breaking down to tackle and pulls out, watch his arms, he still hit him, thus the flag, but if he had any intent then he would have gone through with the tackle and destroyed Brees. Now he didn't pull up, but he also did not hit him hard or with any kind of malicious intent.

Again, I have no problem with the flag, that is what the rule is, but to fine for that is just pathetic, that was a textbook roughing the passer, why have a rule if you don't think the rule is sufficient...

I stand by that the real losers from a suspension are the fans who have to watch a lesser product as a result.
OK, so Brandon Meriweather's helmet-to-helmet hit, I think we can all agree that was an illegal, boarder-line dirty, hit. Are you saying that because it can be called as a penalty on the field you are not OK with the fine he received?

And "holding is every bit as dangerous as that hit"? WTF?!

This is a bad post. So bad.
