Yeah, but at least it is some sort of affirmation from the League that it was an illegal hit.

I don't know or speculate if it was on purpose


I will say most players play with honor, but if one wasn't playing with honor.. that is cheap to knock out a rival player..

just opened minded out loud thought here and not accusing anyone of anything

I'm noticing a trend here, it's like every week someone gets fined for a dirty hit against the Texans...

That's just pure BS!! JMO!

Just curious guys! How much money will Cush lose not being able to finish the year? Any at all? Is there an incentive bonus he will lose? Just wondering.

Bingo.

It's time the Texans found a way to send messages to our opponents as legal but as brutal as possible.

The downside of being known as "good guys" is that the dirty guys think they can push ya around a little, an extra shove here...a little clip there. Because the good guys won't fight back, we don't want the penalty yardage on us.

Time to push the limits a little, IMO. Time to send in a reserve for a play or two, if we need to send some chin music to brush em off the plate.

I doubt it. Slausen probably lives pay-check to pay-check like many of us. You wouldn't think it, but the more you make, the more you spend & this guy isn't a highly paid NFL star.

That's your projection. One commentator even described this as a pretty standard amount for a blocking violation. There have been a couple $7500 fines in the last few weeks.

Whatever.

If the NFL felt there was malice behind the hit he'd have been fined more.

The bigger picture is that the NFL should make it illegal to block or tackle at the knees from the side and the player you are aiming at does not see you.

I think it would depend on the reputation of the player, or if there were previous infractions.

Who knew that Patrick Ewing was a member at TexansTalk?

Slauson has made over $2 million in his 4 years in the NFL. That's a little more than the paycheck-to-paycheck crowd pull in. And $10,000 is 1% of Slauson's $1 million salary for 2012. While 1% isn't nothing (I would notice it out of my salary), it is certainly something he can easily afford and likely won't impact Slauson's playing style.
