Default It's Official: Goodell hates the Steelers

There is no other explanation for Goodell not punishing Patrick Chung. His helmet to helmet hit caused Ward's concussion. That should be grounds enough for a fine. Ward is an NFL star. Goodell has yet to impose a fine. What a double standard?

Patrick Chung was fine for his hit on Chad Henne. Chung's hit did not cause a concussion.

I think Goodell is jealous of the Rooneys. The Rooneys have more clout in the NFL than Goodell. I hope the Players Union can reign in this tyrant before he ruins the NFL and Harrison and Troy are forced to wear skirts.

Sorry, but there is no way Chung should be punished in any way, shape, or form for that hit whether the result was a concussion or not. Just because some of the other punishments he has imposed on players around the league, James Harrison included, may have seemed a little over the top doesn't automatically mean that Chung deserves a fine here.

goodell is still hypocritical in his levying of the fines and ambiguous w/ his explanations.

Everyone else in the league says he loves the Steelers...

I think he hates any smashmouth defensive team.

Goodell receives no respect because he has no consistency. Week after week he picks certain players to fine while others go free. They really need a panel consisting of retired refs, players, and coaches to do the fining.

Actually it does. They called it incomplete through replay review which means Ward was a defenseless receiver at the time of the hit. Had they called it a fumble then that would mean that he would have made the catch, turned up field, and became a ball carrier and helmet to helmet is no longer a penalty or fine-able offense.

The NFL dropped it here. They ruled on the field that it was incomplete. A 15 yard penalty should have been thrown number 1. Number 2 a fine should be given to the defender. He hit helmet to helmet what was determined to be a defenseless receiver. He clearly led with the helmet

I'm far from a conspiracy theorist, but even I'm wondering what the deal is with Goodell and the Steelers. Something isn't right here.
