It is truethere seems to be a double standard cause we play physical. Shaun Rogers hiton Ben should have been a penalty and fine but nothing. Hines being Hines gets a fine. Its bs. I was always told football was a physical game and pansys stay home. Goodell is making this a no contact league.

Ah yes. The new "criticizing the commissioner" rule.

Ironically, I believe this was just recently added to the rule book.

I'll betcha Troy doesn't even get fined - Troy is very widely respected in the league and like other posters have said . . . what he's saying is absolutely true.

". . . Pansy game" - I Love It!

Kudo's to ya Troy! Couldn't agree with you more. About time the players had a say in what's going on. Goodell is ruining this league. He's incompetent and completely brainwashed by Bob Kraft.

As Teddy Roosevelt said, "Speak softly and carry a big stick."

You know it's bad when a guy like Troy feels the need to speak up.

I like Troy speaking up about this silly period we are in with regards to player fines. I just hope he doesnt stay quiet if he gets fined.
