    What is this world coming to...

    If a roughing the passer is fineable, why aren't things like holding, pass interference, clipping and the like also fineable? They are also completely covered within the rules and thus there is no need to fine or suspend for them...

    Polamalu is on point, the people in charge are entirely separated from the game and are taking away the types of things that make it great.
    Okay, i know you're not this dumb, please.

    Holding? Pass interference? What the **** is wrong with you? Those plays are penalized in game because they gave an unfair advantage, that's it. It isn't deemed malicious to hold a guy, or to interfere with him catching the ball. You don't risk injury with a hold. Clipping and illegal blocks are 100% fineable. Ask Flozell Adams.

    WTF is wrong with you people? Look at him as he's about to make contact with Brees. He thrusts his head towards the back of his helmet/neck.

      I'm pretty sure roughing the passer and late hits have been a mandatory fine for a while now.
      Still Team The Ke$ha!!!

        You have totally missed the point. The rule is there for those things, holding is every bit as dangerous as that hit was yet you wont see anyone getting fined for a hold.

        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.

        WTF is wrong with you people? Look at him as he's about to make contact with Brees. He thrusts his head towards the back of his helmet/neck.
        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.


        Props to BK on the sig!

          I hope someone makes a form tackle on a QB, between the shoulder and waist, and the QB gets really messed up (no one important, maybe Jamarcus Russell). Id love to see how the NFL reacted to that.

            Harrison watches the ball leave Brees' hand and then lowers his head. He had plenty of time stop without even moving out of the way. In fact, he had to re-adjust the angle in which he was heading just to hit Brees. His eyes are looking right at Brees when the ball leaves his hands. Harrison could've easily avoided the hit and a fine but he's too stupid to think that way. In his mind, football is nothing more than a legal way to hurt people.

              I have no real issue with late hits on quarterbacks(many are easily forgivable and 5 years ago wouldn't even be penalized). It's the players that lead with the helmet and are intentionally trying to hurt/injure QB's that need to be sent packing. Harrison would not have gotten a fine if he kept his chin up.

                Harrison clearly dips his head and puts the crown of his head into the base of Brees' helmet/neck.

                The guy is a total jackass and deserves every fine he gets now. Call it a dumbass, crybaby tax if it makes you feel better, but don't defend him. His idiocy, at this point, is completely indefensible.

                    How is a hold the least bit dangerous?

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

                        • A recent Sporting News survey of 100 NFL players found James Harrison to be ranked the 2nd Dirtiest Player in the NFL.

                            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?

                                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.
