Does Dobbins have any historical incidents that might have increased this amount from$15k?
People, the rules have been provided repeatedly in the this thread and the Hit on Cutler thread. There is nothing QB related here. Any player in the act of throwing the ball or immediately afterward is a defenseless player. It is not illegal to have helmet to helmet contact ordinarily, i.e. non-defenseless players. That's why there is a special rule about it for defenseless players.
