rodger goodell apologized in advance and offered to blow raheem brock for free at the next players/owners meetings, with the caveat that he doesnt spit.

I do not think that Brock should have been fined, it did seem like he was tripped and fell into Ben.

I would say the player who dove at Bens knees in the early part of the 2nd Half was more fine worthy, but really Goodell can take all his new fines/Rules and shove it

No, Arians and Tomlin should be fined for that one. The game was out of hand already, and all they had to do was hand the ball off and/or max protect. Instead they passed more in the 2nd half than in the first, went empty backfield numerous times, dangling their $100M QB to the Fates, and still only scored 7 points in the half.

Rather than "remove the stench" from the Ravens game, they exposed way too much of their gameplan, and Arians showed just how incompetent he really is. He so wants to be Belichick. It's just sad.

Brock could have avoided the collision with the knees. He takes an extra lunge at the end after being tripped.

It's really a 50/50 call. I know it was probably just habit for him to keep driving towards to QB. But by the looks of the last link, it could have been avoided.

Are you out of your mind? Go back and watch it again. He wrapped his arm around Ben's right leg and took him down. THAT'S intent!!!!:banging:

I agree!! Thats what i was screaming and had me so pissed when i was watching it and the announcers were trying to play it off as a trip. Sure he was tripped but what happened after that was what brought the fine! Classless! :tt03:

just to square things up and make goodell feel better he decided to also fine an opponent of tom brady-

AdamSchefter Adam Schefter
NFL handed out matching $15,000 fines -- one to Raheem Brock for hit on Ben Roethlisberger, other to Antonio Garay for hit on Tom Brady.


what a pudwhacker.

Yes, I know it's Ben...and support anything to keep him healthy...BUT I still think its a stupid fine- QB's are football players too, and sometimes they're going to get hit...Its a football game, not some flag pulling contest. Too much is done to protect one player's position...why even have them own team colored jerseys instead of just red ones....Ask Harrison's feelings on it after his fines from last year that were unnecessary because he touched a QB

I get what steelersdepot is trying to say, but Brock didn't purposely target Ben's knee. That's just where he ended up after getting tripped and still trying to make a play. It's no different than what happened with Troy in your very own sig. Troy didn't target the running back's ankles, but after getting hit and still trying to make a play, that's where he ended up.

In Brock's case, the hit deserved a flag. Hitting a QB in the knees is a penalty, regardless of why you do it. But it didn't deserve a fine.

If the roles were reversed and it had been James Harrison who made the same play after getting tripped, and then got fined for it, I'm willing to bet the arguments here would be much different. :chuckle:
