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.

We needed his dirty on that defense. Before he got here they played too damn nice.

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.

See, I have a problem with this, and that player that jumped on J Jones back last year in the playoffs. There's a difference between blocking a player from a play, and engaging in light Judo. If there can be defensive and offensive holding, nobody should ever be able to hold someone unless they are making a play on the ball carrier without a penalty. If someone grabbed my leg and it felt awkward I'd probably try to kick them off of me too...

I did, and I agree. I said as much in Texans Chick's thread in Tailgate section.

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.”

Why would you love that reaction? He took a helmet to the head and looked to be knocked out, as evidenced by his right leg buckling much like a boxer getting his lights turned out, not to mention him immediately letting go of the ball even though Quin never hit the ball. It was a clean hit by Quin, within the rules, but you love watching players sustain head injuries? To each their own, I guess?

UPDATE: Antonio Smith fine reduced to $11,000.

Quote:
HOUSTON — The NFL has reduced its fine on Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith for kicking Miami’s Richie Incognito to $11,000.

Smith was initially fined $21,000 by the league for kicking the Dolphins guard. Smith appealed, saying he was retaliating to Incognito’s stepping on his right ankle during the season opener. He missed two practices the following week with soreness in the ankle.

Incognito wasn’t fined. Smith showed off a letter from the league on Thursday, saying the NFL was trimming the fine.

The Texans (10-1) play at Tennessee (4-7) on Sunday.

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.
