Default Hines Ward Fined too...

HINES WARD FINED $5,000 FOR UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS
Posted by Michael David Smith on October 9, 2008, 12:40 p.m. EDT
Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward has been fined $5,000 for unnecessary roughness during Pittsburgh’s September 29 game against the Ravens.

Ward says he thinks he knows which hit drew the fine, but that he’s baffled that he’s getting fined even though he was not penalized on the play.

“That’s what’s so crazy about it,” Ward said. “How do you not get penalized but you get a fine? It was on [Ravens cornerback] Corey Ivy, I think. I don’t know. All I saw was the letter, $5,000 for unnecessary roughness.”

Ward is known as one of the toughest blockers in the league among wide receivers, and one unnamed coach said during the off-season that Ward is the dirtiest player in the NFL. But Ward’s point in this case is basically, If the officials didn’t throw a flag, what could he have done wrong?

Of course, players get fined all the time for plays on which they weren’t penalized. And Ward seems to know that, because he says he’s probably not going to bother with an appeal.

Oh well. I'm sure he won't stop him from knocking to crap out of a Raven in the future.

So, guys aren't allowed to hit each other now? Welcome to the National Flag Football League, folks (except when it comes to hitting Ben - then it's anything goes). Goodell needs to go. Yesterday.

Any guesses on who the unnamed coach was? I bet it was Del Rio. Hines got away with a lot of sh*t in the playoff game last year, and he is always stirring things up with Mathis and Williams.

Not just the hits, what about the threats that we hear about almost every week. You know the ones about taking the cheap shot. So I guess it's now illegal for a reciever to throw a block in the middle of a play, but it's fine not only to threaten but deliver late hits on Ben

Way to be a worthless piece of sh!t Goodell.

FIRE GOODELL!!!!!

What an absolute joke the NFL has turned into under Goodell. Now players are being fined for "blocking too hard." I had issues with Tagliabue, but I'd take him back in a heartbeat. Goodell is a ball-less sack of crap.

No way. Del Rio isn't the type. I'll bet it was Billick or a Raven DC.
