Fines are great for the charities they go to I guess. It's pocket change for most every player. It won't deter any player from the way they play. Some players do make dirty hits and should be fined heavy but also suspended a few games. Goodell saying it's for the saftey of the game, I agree that's a crock.

Yeah, I get that too...but I also don't want to see guys running around with mush for brains 10-20 years after they retire. So I get the player safety aspect of it...but I don't think Goodell really gives a shit. I think he just wants everyone to get the impression that he does give a shit.

There are so many steps Goodell could take to make the game safer and still have it be a hard hitting game...but he's more focused on offensive scoring and uses the shield of player safety to get that, all the while not really doing much at all to actually do anything that would promote player safety (i.e. making all players wear the latest protective helmets; bullshit fines that no player cares about). It's all a crock of shit.

Here was Clark's response....Can't blame the guy...but now he'll probably be fined again...

“This time it’s wrong,” Clark said and then criticized commissioner Roger Goodell, “not that I respected Roger before this.”

Clark said if he’s going to get hit with such a big fine on what he and Tomlin and teammates believe was a clean hit, “I might as well put him to sleep for real” or take out the receiver’s knee.

it's disgusting these assholes can't tell the difference between a player trying to force an incompletion at full speed, and a guy specifically head hunting. Goodell is trash.. as far as i am concerned, the NFL will never be the same again. pretty soon they'll be using instant replay for helmet-to-helmet hits.

OK...Just did some math...Based on what I found to be Clark's 2.5M Salary this year...this 40K fine is the equlivent to a $480 fine for a normal person making $30K per year....

Thats not exactly a parking ticket....not going to make him unable to feed his kids or anything, but for something I consider just a good tackle (Tomlin used it as an example in film study as a textbook tackle) it is WAY too much. Screw you Goodell.

In another reference to hockey...it shouldn't be Goodell who decides what's a fine/suspension and what's not. The best thing hockey ever did this year was make Brendan Shanahan (a long time player) Vice President of Hockey and Business Development and head disciplinarian. This way, it's not just some guy in a suit who's never played the game interpreting the rules and the hits and handing out fines.

Goodell really does have too much power over this game. And my bitterness towards it just grows every year. This isn't the game I grew up loving any more.

Goodell has his crony lawyer Ray Anderson in charge of that process. Who is possibly more qualified to **** people over for money than a lawyer?

I'm sure his lawyer will do exactly as his client "Goodell" tells him to do.
