But that is not what the article, and the league, are saying:

Slauson was fined $10,000 for his illegal block on Cushing, who was, in effect, a defenseless defender, cut down by Slauson's peel-back block.

In a move to protect more players, the competition committee is considering a ban of these dangerous blocks, which remain legal inside the tackle box.
