Default so when will the fine......

....be announced on the NE player for the clear helmet-to-helmet hit on Hines? Tomorrow? Tuesday???

There better be. Thats TWICE. To Hines. This game and in the N. Orleans game.
If this was a Steeler there would be an imminent fine coming.....

If i was Tomlin i would complain to the league if there is no word. I don't like the new "sissy" rules AT ALL......but if they're going to fine one, they have to fine another and be consistent. And fair.

If it were a Steeler the player would be suspended for the year and the Steelers would lose a number 1 daft pick. Since it was done by #$!%!~ Cheatriot, I expect the Hines will be fined for putting his helmet in the way of the Cheatfilthy's helmet. I'm sure Goodell will award the Belichat another number one draft pick as well.

I don't think there will be one. That just looked like a regular football hit to me. Even Hines said so.

Hines was a big man not to complain about it but...
It was helmet to helmet
It was deliberate
And he was not a legitimate target because he cannot have been a "ball carrier" if he hadn't made the completion yet
But no flag and no fine of course.

It was borderline helmet to helmet....just ask Collinsworth

Am I so biased I don't see straight anymore???.....I think if Harrison made that same hit he would be suspended this week.

I hope he slips and finds out what a real head injury feels like.

I'm confused now. When is a receiver considered defenseless? In the act of catching?
