Not surprised in the least. Wonder how much Farrior will get tagged for. :coffee:

Forgot about the Farrior hit, considering the way that clown of a commissioner fines players, I can bet it will probably be equal to if not more than Woodley's.

The sad part about this is that it doesn't surprise me anymore. And even when Woodley got a hold of Campbell, the whistle wasn't blown. So that "in the grasp" rule is more bullshit. Goodeal is a piece of shit. No fine or penalty for this, though.

http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=68&f=1897&t=3341368

I reiterate, Goodeal is a piece of shit. I hope the Steelers play even harder just to give big F U to the league office. Polamalu's and Mark Schlereth's fears are further proven to be correct. Flipping hypocritical pansies' league.

Looks like Goodell has a beef with the steelers this year.. What are they trying to do slow down are sack attack by making players think before they hit are sack.. this is crap.

He fined Justin Tuck for his clean sack on the Cowboys too. This is really getting stupid. All the fundementals of football seem to be going out the windown once ya get the the show anymore. If this keeps up kids will be playing soccer to keep from being fined for everything.

Shameful. That was a standard tackle.

Enough of these half-measures. Goodell needs to just go all the way and change the rules so that instead of actually tackling the quarterback, defenders are required to approach him slowly so as not to scare him, and ask if he would mind taking a knee or stepping out of bounds. And politely, or else you know that's a fine.

Hey, easy now! As an all-county center forward in high school I can attest that soccer is physical too! I remember one time a defender stepped on my hangnail and I played right through the pain! :chuckle:

Wow it's frickin' football. You're supposed to tackle people!

I hate how QBs get special treatment. It's ridiculous to me. Some of the things I can understand, like purposely going for his knees, because that can knock someone out for the season. But throwing him down? That's what you're supposed to do and taught to do all your life!

11-07-2008, 05:19 PM

I don't think so. this is a little suspicious....

Goodell has to go already. Dan rooney should definitely get behind this

Yo Goodell, what you got to understand that this the NFL, not youth flag football played with girls as well as guys. People get hit and hit hard. He was just doing his job. That's like a carpenter getting fined for picking up a board of wood. :mad:

If you think about it, this will start hurting the league; think about those undrafted rookies that sign for min salaries. Say we sign a LB for around $260k salary and he turns out to be a monster and gets a sack everygame, well if godell fines him 10k each game, well that is over half his salary right there . . .
I understand that players should and mostly do love the sport, but they need to make money too because their careers will be short (well unless godell gets his wish for a pro flag football league). it is just BS

I think I read that the fines go to charity and are actually tax deductable. Might be going to the retired players fund. But I'd rather be able to chose my own charity and amount of contribution. :noidea:

Great point on "low income" players Rotor. :sofunny: But I honestly agree with you, plus these fines appear to be handed out so subjectively and inconsistently at times it is bothersome to say the least.

I think the team should all start a "pay the fine" bucket, all the players put in a certain amount of money in a bucket and they can rewatch the fined plays, if they deem the fine was BS then the money comes out of a bucket lol, that would show a team answer to the BS fines.

Well we can all admit it now, the league and commissioner are all cracking down on hits and as the years progress they will get tougher and tougher on the rules and the league will become a pansy game.

Truly a poor choice from the NFLPA and something that will hurt the game dearly, but let them go out there and play football. It's a contact sport what do you expect!?

I don't really see where this is the NFLPA's fault. If a player wants to appeal their fine, the NFLPA does so. Unfortunatly, the appeal goes right back to Roger Goodell. When the bargaining for a new CBA begins, the NFLPA needs to fight for all apeals to be held in front of an unbiased arbitrator and not the head of the league that issued the fine.

I hate to piss on a guy's memory, but Gene Upshaw really started all of this back in the mid 90s when...you guessed it...the Steelers' D was terrorizing the league by punishing QBs, and he worked with then-commish Tagliabue to start doing more to protect them through penalties and fines. Goodell has just taken things to the extreme, and now Woodley is being fined for "tackling the QB with intimidation" for simply making a football play and making sure the QB is taken down to the ground. It's a complete joke and is completely hypocritical. The league should be embarrassed.

I am not surprised. I kind of figured that was coming after I saw Tuck got fined for the hit against the Dallas qb last Sunday.

I thought the same, made at thread about it earlier this week. Such a shame, not even being able to enjoy a hard sack without knowing your player is going to be fined.

Interestingly, Tuck's fine got rescinded today.


NFL rescinds fine against Giants DE Justin Tuck

9 hours, 22 minutes ago

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)—The NFL has rescinded a $7,500 fine against New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck for a hit on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Brooks Bollinger last weekend.

Ray Anderson, the NFL’s vice president of operations, called Tuck on Friday night to inform him of the change, the Giants said in an e-mail on Saturday.

Tuck had insisted the hit was legal and Giants coach Tom Coughlin agreed with his player on Monday.

Tuck hit Bollinger in the midsection as the quarterback released a pass and his momentum carried both to the ground on the third-down play in the fourth quarter.

Tuck was penalized for roughing the passer. The league originally determined that Tuck had unnecessarily driven Bollinger to the ground and issued the fine on Friday.

Jason Campbell actually fumbled the ball on that play, but the ref blew the whistle early.

I agree, and I have never liked Goddell from the very start. Pro Bowl in the middle of the season, 18 games, NFL going to Europe for regular season, letting the Patriots off the hook (basically lying to everyone), and this BS about protecting players when we all know it's all about the money, it always is.

It doens't go to Goodell or anything.

I would be careful about your assumptions. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if at least some of it went back into the hands of Goodell. Remember, this is the same guy who let the Patriots off the hook for cheating.

Yeah, I think if Woodley had played we might've been able to get a little more pressure on Manning in the second half. Even when gameplanned for, Harrison is still a beast, but Wood was definitely missed.

I thought Fraizer did a pretty good job filling in though, not overly wowzers, but good enough.

The Aussies already make fun of American Football for wearing pads and helmets, and now this? This is turning into the most wimpy professional sport. Everyone wants to protect the offense, but a chop block can easily blow out a defensive players legs.
