Amen!!!

My brother turned to me, and asked, "Why does BB not get those calls!?!" The only thing I can think is that the refs think that BB is too big to be injured: "Oh... Ben can take it; he's big & tough." It is simply not right. ANY defender hitting a QB at the knees HAS to be flagged!!!

I have always wondered though, what do they do with all of that money from the fines?
So, who's whining?

I do think the refs are reticent to throw flags when it comes to certain QBs because of their unique athletic ability. Vick, for example, gets lit up in the pocket frequently and I rarely see RTP flags thrown for him, his ability to escape and run downfield works against him in the regard. Same with Ben, who officials have seen shrug off dozens of would-be tacklers over the years. It's not fair but its just one of those things

This bullshit won't end until goodell is gone. He'll fine every hit that looks too rough. Mindy isn't paying that fine anyways. I'd rather see Mindy pick up the fine, his teammates, the Rooney's Wii chip in, then see him give up a touchdown there by laying up from the hit. I blame Palmer for throwing it. He put his teammates in a tough position and gambled his health. Most qbs don't fear the ball over the middle nowadays with safety help. Lott, Tatum wouldn't of fit in well with today's game.

Darrius Heyward-Bey Has No Hard Feeling Towards Ryan Mundy For Hit

Friday, September 28th, 2012 by Dave Bryan

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who was knocked out of the game last Sunday by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy, said on Friday that he has no hard feelings towards Mundy for the hit, according to the Associated Press.

Despite not having any hard feelings, Heyward-Bey also has no recollection of the hit that left him with a concussion and neck strain. The Raiders receiver spoke to reporters on Friday for the first time since being carted off the field in the fourth quarter and told them that he's seen replays of the hit but otherwise does not remember it.

Heyward-Bey also told reporters that he has since exchanged text messages with Mundy while he was in the hospital and that he told the Steelers the safety that the play was simply a part of the game.

Mundy has since been fined $21,000 by the league for the hit, which he is expected to appeal. Mundy also made it clear after the game that the hit to the head was not intentional.

Heyward-Bey is listed as doubtful on the Raiders Friday injury report and is not expected to play in the Raiders Sunday game against the Denver Broncos.

Looks like a clean hit to me, too.

That's right. Sometimes shit happens.

As for the hit, by today's standards it was a fine-worthy hit. A KO straight to the face that leaves the WR completely unconscious is the exact thing the NFL is trying to prevent (for legal reasons as mentioned). That's in Goodel's world, in the football world that every body knows but him, it was a great hit that ensured an incompletion. I don't know if Mundy could have pulled up or not, but it doesn't matter, in Goodel's world it's still a fine and in the football world that every body knows it's still a good hit.

While on this subject, have you seen the way they are teaching kids to hit these days? It's the exact way I was taught not to hit. I played JR league's, high school, and college, and no coach (or even an assistant) EVER would have allowed someone running around hitting with their heads pointed back and getting their necks cracked backwards. Is there some new science behind this or something that I'm not aware of, or are they really trading head blows for spinal injuries?

helmet to the chin, you don't get knocked out from getting hit in the chest. according to current nfl rules, that's an illegal hit (helmet to helmet). a couple inches lower and it's legal

nfl is trying to stop the occurence of head injuries, and anytime you get a blow severe enough to cause a knockout, that's brain damage to some extent guaranteed
