Default Harrison to be fined for helmet to helmet?

MNF is reporting that Harrison will be fined for a helmet to helmet hit on Drew Brees.

In the replay it doesn't look like the helmets even touch. Smells like bullshit to me.

Might have been because it was a late hit. Players seem to get fined more for late hits on quarterbacks than actual helmet to helmet hits...

There were a lot of low hits in that game though and a lot of injuries from what I heard, you'd think the NFL would have noticed

If Harrison gets fined and the player that hit Ward doesn't, that would be some real BS.

I was wondering if we would hear anything about that also. Looked like a horse-collar tackle to me.

I've been so unbelievably pissed off with this league lately and these "fines" that I can barely post anymore without feeling rage, haha. I've been a spectating all around the boards lately. When I heard Harrison might get fined, it's just adding to my rage as a fan to watch the garbage Goodell turned the NFL into.

They better fix whatever it is that needs to be fixed.
