Default Hines getting fined???

does anyone think hines is going to get fined for the 3rd consecutive week?

i think its a good possibility seeing as hines broke someones jaw this time. if he does get fined for another good clean hit, i will lose all the remaining faith i have in goodell.

As soon as the hit happened, I said.. uh oh Hines, open up your checkbook!!

I don't think it was a dirty hit (Hines is NOT a dirty player) ... but I think the refs were on the look out for him this week.

Considering that he got tagged for $15K for slapping a guy on the helmet (which you see players do all the time) as it was called "taunting" WAY after the fact and went unflagged during the game, coupled with the fact that Goodell is a giant douchebag, yes, I do think Hines is going to get nailed again.

It was a legal play and a legal block. Rivers was in on the play and Hines took him out. Hines will be fined because he hit him too hard. If he's going to get a bull**** fine for last week, he's going to get a bull**** fine for this.

And I don't think he cares.

If they fine him you know the league has it in for him.

Incidentally a third fine would get him suspended for the NY game.

I think that hit was his statement. He said he's going to keep playing clean football, but it's worth more to him to jack people up and make the opposition play scared and have to pay 15k a game.

Good for him. I feel bad for Rivers. He seems like the VERY rare Bengal who isn't a punk or thug or whiny attention profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilterprofanityfilter. But he needs to learn to play with his head on a swivel against the Steelers.

I agree.

Too bad another unjustified fine may suspend him for the Giants game.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.......does that make him a badass??

Can't speak to the fine part of it but it was certainly one helluva hard hit. Good job Hines.

He can't be suspended, but he will be fined. It was a clean hit.
