Default any fine or suspension for browns phil taylor yet?

remember? he's the guy who clubbed ben in the head on thursday night. he got a flag but has anyone heard of him getting a fine?

or how about Joselio Hanson, from the eagles, he launched himself into lousman and made a much more direct hit to the side of lousman's helmet with the crown of his helmet, any fine for that?

why doesn't espn and nfl network keep show replays of those hits?

and what about the texans lineman who buried the crown of his helmet into harrison's face and broke his eye socket in week 4? i guess that's ok with godell.

or how bout gocong going helmet to helmet with mendy at the goaline? he didn't even try to make a form tackle. i guess when rb's get hit in the head and se it coming, it has no effect to their brain. good call roger. player safety.

You're allowed a helmet to helmet hit on a runner (Mendenhall). I don't know why people keep whining about that.

Because it invalidates the whole "player safety" argument as the completely bogus crock of shit that it is, perhaps?

phil taylor won't get fined for clubbing ben in the head. goodell only protects the pretty boys like manning and brady

ben is too ugly or something, and because he doesn't have 15 year old girls buying his jersey everywhere, or doing model shoots in GQ magazine, goodell doesn't think he's a big enough cash cow to protect him

Exactly. It highlights the whole SAFETY bull crap. The NFL cares about it's players. Oh wait, only certain players.

I thought some one posted rules claiming no helmet to helmet on a runner? Just curious, if Tebow rules out of the pocket and gets hit if he decided to throw. What happens? Im getting confused about the rules.

You're allowed to hit a runner helmet to helmet because 1) it's impractical and impossible to not tackle a runner helmet to helmet sometimes because they use their own helmet to drive themselves forward and 2) when they are a runner, they are already cognizant of their surroundings and are in a position to defend themselves. I don't see this as hypocrisy. Do you know how many penalties and fines and suspensions there would be every single game if helmet to helmet contact on any runner was a flag?

Also, I don't remember Ben getting "clubbed in the head". When did this happen?

It's almost annoying how much you guys are crying about Harrison. I couldn't even defend the hit the first time I saw it. I was in shock that he actually went to the head regardless if he thought McCoy was a runner. He was behind the LoS. He should have aimed lower knowing Goodell is not a fan of his.

Now the Fitzpatrick, Brees and Jason Campbell fines were all bogus. But I thought this and the Massoquoi fines were perfectly warranted.
