Default Does Slauson deserve a fine?

He ended Cushing's season with a clip that sure looks like a cheap shot to me.

Yes he does!! Chop blocking in space, from behind, against a smaller player than you is not only cheap, its cowardly.

A face up helmet to helmet hit is far less cheap than a chop block. Consider that Darrius Heyward Bey got hit by Mundy in a high speed play and he isnt out for the season, but crap like chop blocking can put a guy out for his career with an ACL.

Though this one was clearly illegal, I wonder if the league is going to address legal cut blocks when a DL is engaged. They say they're about player safety, but I don't quite believe it. They're about generating offense.

Are their any rules to protect defensive players?

Goddell only cares about head shots even if its unavoidable unless your Tom Brady, then all hits are avoidable.

I feel bad for that person then. I lived there almost 3 years from 2008 to 2010 and hated every minute of it. Lousy place to live.

....the hines ward rule.

it will take 3000+ players to bring a class action lawsuit against the nfl for knee and hip replacements until goodell starts giving a shit.
