He has a right to be pissed off! That was such a crap call, and to be fined? Bah!

Probably is a little bit out of line. Unfortunately the players are in a position where they can't voice their opinions. I'm surprised the NFL has the balls to threaten a fine after that debacle. Whaaaaatevs.

You can't be questioning the integrity of the officials, no matter how bad the call was.

The hit was fine but the post match comment wasnt needed.

This years team is starting to play with a bit of a chip on their shoulders. It seems to have them pretty well motivated to deal with the bumps along the way.

I don't agree with the call he has a good argument but you cant say nothing about the officiating.

It doesn't surprise me with that good for nothing pantywaist of a commissioner we have. If it had been a Patty that stabbed someone in the pile he would probably fined the official for throwing the flag.

I pose the question.....should refs be held accountable for their actions (or lack there of) like players? Fines perhaps?

I wouldn't care so much if once, just once once, they would call a penalty on one of Ben's hits. You can't tell me that as many times as he gets hit, they are all legal.

I think it is more likely that you'll see Ben flagged for roughing the tackler.
