I can't stand the new NFL.
No one is allowed to hit anyone anymore.
Kawika Mitchell hit Jason Wright while he was still in bounds. Wright fell over and slid into the Bills' bench. The ref threw the flag after he was on the ground for a few seconds. There was absolutely no way that it should have been a penalty. It just pisses me off that the NFL is taking out all the hitting.

Shocking.

* Weeps at the thought of watching Sage QB our team for another month. *

Damn you, Jared Allen!

I think with all the finest the NFL has collected this year, they've matched the Florida Marlins payroll!

Rodgers is such a puss.
He has played all pretty much season long with a sprained shoulder( While being statistical a top 10 QB might I add), what a puss.

Thank you Roger for only a Fine.

Two will be gone soon enough.

Hasnt Allen gotten in trouble numerous time for some pretty dirty hits?

Roger Goodell was probably a fairy when he was younger. Does he know that there's football and there's flag football. And they exist seperately. The league has turned into rough touch, and it sucks.

I went back and watched the hit again. It was definitely an easy call; almost a full second after Rodgers released the ball, Allen lowered his head and made a helmet-to-helmet hit knocking Rodgers to the ground. The flag was definitely deserved, but I'm not sure if it was a $25,000 hit.

Yeah well with the NFL is being this year im surprised it wasnt a suspension...got to protect the qb.

Haha he barely hit him. Goodell is a joke. Quarterbacks can hardly even be categorized as football players anymore.

I think it was because Allen led with his helmet, and made helmet to helmet contact. That is a big no-no in today's NFL

The best part of that hit was Allen throwing up his hands afterwards and trying to convince everyone he did nothing.

Force needs to be considered. That was a love tap.

Yeah I agree, but in Godell's NFL everything is black and white. I think the penalty was warranted, but the fine was excessive and unnessecary.

He barely hit him, helmet to helmet? If helmets did touch it was a rub or something cause u clearly see him try to pull back. I dont see why he was fined, flag was deserved but fined? Rogers did a nice job acting though, he must watch a lot of spurs games.

I don't have any real problems with that because he did lead with his helmet. Who was it on the Vikings that hit Jeff Garcia last week, about 3 seconds after he threw the ball and hit him right in the helmet, that was a hit that deserves a fine and a suspension.

Ray Edwards but he is mentally challenged so it is alright.

Allen also put out Schaub for a couple weeks by diving at his knees...twice. After hitting another player late, Goodell had every right to call him up.

It may be the No Fun League, but Allen had it coming. He's lucky he only got a fine.

I was going to agree, but if you play back the tape like 10 or so times on the replay, you can see that Allens helmet snapped Rogers helmet back.

Flag? Yes, Fine? No more than 5-10k.

The amount makes sense. This is not the first time that Allens been fined due to late or illegal hits.

I heard he also trash talked Rodgers they should fine him for that another 10 grand.

Wow...That's all I have to say.

He was BARELY hit and not even helmet to helmet, or below the knee or whatever.



I constantly see Bulger take bigger hits after the play and nothings ever flagged yet FINES involved.



That's the most rediculous fine I've ever seen.

Yeah, late it, fine, it was. But fine worthy? That's effin' dumb.


Wow. I'm dumbfound.


Rodgers isn't even Tom Brady, I could see a fine like that for Brady just because he's the NFL's baby, but that shouldn't have EVER been fined.

i think he was fined due to a cheap shot or two earlier in the season where he hit a QB below the legs.

He's so blue collar. I hate when these stars see hat first million dollar paycheck and it's all downhill from there. Jared Allen seems like he's the same person now that he was at Idaho State.

you know what... Before the MN vs. GB Monday night game earlier this year, Jared Allen was quoted saying he wanted to put his helmet directly into the back of Rodgers. He's been lighting everybody up and getting hit with fines. Taking pocket change from a guy like Allen isn't gonna change a thing. Suspensions are the only thing that will make any sort of difference.

Am I saying he's dirty? no.. But fines don't mean jack. Remember Moss laughing about his fine saying he'll pay "with straight cash"

Yeah, that was before.


This is now, nothing illegal about this hit.

It's the dumbest fine I've heard of. For a legal (Late) but legal hit on a quarterback.


Ugh, rediculous.

It was an illegal hit. He was flagged for it.

Players will get punished for a string of incidents. Had another player bumped Rodgers, it would probably have gone unpunished. But since it was Allen, who's hurt a QB with late blows previously in the season, it was called.

Last year Haynesworth was flagged with a personal foul for tackling MoJo Drew too roughly. Refs will not hesitate to flag players with rap sheets. Allen got fined for goin low on Schaub, he hit another QB late according to the Refs, and Goodell hit his change purse again for it.

Ugh, rediculous.

Your blind or dont know the rules. How can it be legal and late? Helmet to helmet isnt a legal hit especially after the QB has released the ball. I watched his hits on Schaub and he was diving for his legs and hit them well after the ball was gone. QB's overly protected? yes but for the most part their sitting ducks.
