Default Pouncey fined for late hit

NFL fines Steelers center Pouncey for late hit
Thursday, October 06, 2011
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey said he was fined $7,500 by the NFL for a late hit in Sunday's loss in Houston.

Pouncey was penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct when he blocked Texans linebacker Connor Barwin to the ground after a 14-yard run by Mewelde Moore in the second quarter.

Pouncey is the third Steelers player to be fined by the league this season.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

it's pretty much a guarantee if you do anything that draws a 15 yard flag you're going to get fined

They never did show the hit again, this shit is getting out of hand and is really ruining it for me! They are so bad now that they're punishing people that were not even in the league when they did something wrong, like Pryor, it's like suspending me from work for something I did at my last job!!! It's a joke!

Games going downhill fast. EVERY big hit is a penalty and fine, for me it has litteraly took about 50% of the fun out of watching football. Few more years in this direction and it will be NCAA or nothing for me, and hopefully many others.

Why would the owners have a problem with taking money away from the players? What I don't understand is how the players could have signed off on a CBA that didn't put a stop to this shit. Incredible. Any union worth its salt would insist on mediating any "punishments".

What is the point of the fines? The PR is that it's to minimize injuries. Have injuries been minimized? No. That should be the end of the discussion: The fines don't work, so stop dishing them out.

The owners hold the power, not the players. The players can collectively talk to each of their owners and tell them, look, this getting out of hand, it needs to stop.
