for late hit on Rodgers, does anyone have video on this hit?

ChezPower4 11-19-2008 02:31 PM

That's now 75,000 dollars for Allen in two weeks ouch

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.

Rodgers is such a puss.

comahan 11-19-2008 02:58 PM

Shocking.

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

Damn you, Jared Allen!

Thank you Roger for only a Fine.

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

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.

Two will be gone soon enough.

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

tjsunstein 11-19-2008 05:13 PM

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.

niel89 11-19-2008 05:20 PM

is this the hit?


tjsunstein 11-19-2008 05:21 PM

Yea, that's the one.

niel89 11-19-2008 05:22 PM

it was dumb to go for the hit that late. the ball was clearly gone.

Vikes99ej 11-19-2008 05:23 PM

I love Jared Allen.

Menardo75 11-19-2008 05:28 PM

Late hit flag worthy yes. Fine worthy no.

The Dynasty 11-19-2008 05:33 PM

When I first saw this i thought of good ol Randy Moss



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

yo123 11-19-2008 05:33 PM

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

Dr. Gonzo 11-19-2008 05:39 PM

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.

Vikes99ej 11-19-2008 05:59 PM

It was worth to put Rodgers on his ass another time.
