Default Antonio Smith Fined

Antonio Smith has been fined 21K for kicking Richie Incognito in the head. He is planning on appealing. Thought? I am not happy.

Unfortunately, if you look at the video replay carefully, Incognito's explanation to the 2 arm resistance to hold Smith from recovering the fumble seems to prove true.

Incognito's explanation makes sense...this happens all the time when the ball pops out. Smith doesn't have a squeaky clean reputation either.

Quote:
“I have seen the video,” Incognito said. “Once the ball was fumbled I grabbed his legs to stop him from recovering the fumble. It’s clear that I wrap my arms around both his legs. I was trying to keep him from scrambling to the ball.

“After the ball was recovered I felt him kicking me. I was trying to protect myself. Kind of like a turtle in a shell. At no time was I turning his ankle. My intent was to keep him from getting to the ball.”

But Incognito was pragmatic. “Obviously in a case like this I have no ground to stand on [because] of my reputation,” he said. “There is no evidence of me trying to injure him. The reason I’m seen holding onto one of his legs [because] he started kicking me in the arm and neck the the other. I had both legs in my grasp. The fact of the matter is I’m laying on his leg. There is no twisting motion whatsoever. He is clearly kicking me in the neck. Talk about dirty?”

Best defense is a good offense.

The Dolphins submitted three plays to the NFL.

No word if Incognito got fined for anything. If you watch the replay, there's all sorts of mischief going on.

I'm not sure what Antonio Smith was supposed to do if big dude has death grip on his ankles and won't let go after the whistle and the refs aren't doing a damned thing.

BS is what it is. Incog's already going for Smiths ankle before the ball was even fumbled. In fact his back was to the ball anyway so there is know way he even knew there was a fumble.

Watch the video again. I am tring to figure out how the pos was even able to see the ball until after he had his leg and holding on already...he then looked up and then went back to super clinch mode.

Yeah, that ******* was using his right hand and was twisting...he wasn't merely hanging onto Smith.

Can't wait for him to get obliterated one of these days, a dose of his medicine.

That guy wouldn't let go even after being repeatedly kicked. Definitely a nutcase.

IF he was twisting his ankle Antonio is justified in kicking him and trying to get the guy off his leg.

The telling thing to me is that the indigo guy didn't say anything about the incident until Antonio did.

If I'm making a clean play and a guy kicks me in the head for no reason I'd probably be the first to bring that up.

After that kick in the head, he just wasn't thinking so straight.

Quotes from Friday's practice.
DE Antonio Smith

(on if he’s been fined) “I just want them to take a good look at it because you know if you going strictly by the rule book, me kicking him was breaking the rules, but I want them to look at the reason why I was kicking him, trying to get him off my ankle. You see on the film, the moment my ankle came free, I stopped. I was just trying to get my ankle free from him mauling it.”

(on how disappointed he is to get fined) “It’s very disappointing whenever you lose money. Nobody wants to lose no money especially $21,000. That could be going in my daughter or my son’s trust funds or something. That’s a pretty penny, nobody would like to get that kind of money especially when I feel like I was defending myself.”
