Thumbs up Eagles' Rodgers-Cromartie fined $21K for Leftwich hit

http://http://www.nfl.com/news/story...r-leftwich-hit





There's your fine. Arguable what else we'll see from Goodell. Hopefully once we get Harrison back he isn't chastised:

He better goddam get fined for that crap. Blatant, malicious, and unnecessary. If Harrison had made that same hit, das Kommisar would have ordered his execution.

Harrison would have had a multi game suspension and a fine of $50k+.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: “$21,000? I ain’t even got that”

Posted by Michael David Smith on August 17, 2012



Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says he can’t afford the $21,000 fine the NFL gave him for a hit on Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich last week.

“Twenty-one thousand. I ain’t even got that,” Rodgers-Cromartie said with a chuckle.

Fortunately for Rodgers-Cromartie, he doesn’t have to have the $21,000 on him. It will be deducted from future paychecks.

Rodgers-Cromartie has insisted that there was nothing dirty about his hit on Leftwich, but he also conceded today that he needs to learn from it to avoid such fines in the future.

“I won’t hit him no more, I’ll tell you that much,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “It’s not even a vicious hit . . . shoot, he got up right from it. I mean, I’ll say I left my feet. I can understand that. I can understand a fine coming. . . . I wouldn’t do it again. In place, you never know. It’s football. You have to keep playing. Play through it.”

Unless he wants to play for free, Rodgers-Cromartie has to find a way to keep playing without delivering hits like the one on Leftwich.

How long has Rodgers-Cromartie been with the NFL? Because I thought I heard the announcers even say it was a blatant illegal hit not to be tolerated and that he's been there long enough to know better. If he's been with the NFL for at least 3 years, I wonder what he does with his money?...

I agree. If it was Harrison everyone would be freaking out, saying "Fine him, suspend him!" blah, blah, blah.

At least we had one thing in our favor. Remember the Ravens hit on Ward that drew NO flag, NO penalty, and No fine? I'd like to see those days come to an end. The NFL needs to be equal with the punishments.

Mach dir keine Sorgen Rodgers-Cromartie, werde ich den feinen Geld von James Harrison zu ergreifen, um es sich auszahlen. Harrison hätte wissen Sie nicht das Geld haben, die Geldbuße zu zahlen haben! Als Kommissar, ich werde James Harrison 10 Spiele für diesen auszusetzen!

HEIL GOODELL! HEIL! HEIL! HEIL!

That's his cousin, Antonio Cromartie of the Jets.

Harrison would've obviously gotten worse treatment because he's a repeat offender. The rules are pretty clear about that, so it's not exactly hypocrisy. The next time D R-C does the same thing, his fine will be greater too.
