Jon Bostic reportedly fined $21,000 for hit against Chargers; LINK

Quote:
...Bostic was fined $21,000 for a hit against the Chargers in last week’s preseason game.

Briggs compared Bostic’s hit to the one that knocked Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller out for the season and, as many others have done with similar hits, wondered why the former is illegal while the latter is legal. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network confirmed Briggs’ report and adds that Bostic was fined for lowering his head while hitting a defenseless receiver.

NFL calling it "lowering his head against a defensless receiver", not the new "leading with the helmet rule"...I call it something different. Willie took two steps in Bostics direction after catching the ball. NFL will now require all defensive players to behead themselves and hold it under their arms so that they will lead with their shoulder pads.

That was a NASTY hit. That guy's going to accidentally hit somebody in the head (eventually), and they are not going to wake up while at the same address.

Of course, as "sensitive" teenage dudes, we gave him the name "grape nuts"

Brandon Harris was also just fined $21k for his shot on that receiver. Swearinger may be a rookie but he had an extra $21k in pocket today.

Seriously though...that bostic find saddens me. I had forgot about the Watt fine last year and the one his rookie year against the colts. This stuff is starting to put a damper on my excitement for the season.

I remembered the hit & thought they're out of their minds.

then I saw a blown up photo from the front side of the receiver where it looked like Bostic put his helmet into the receiver's chest & I was like.... "eh.. I see their point."

Now after watching your slow mo... looks like he was trying to get his head down, away from the receiver's helmet & most of the impact was on his shoulder, not his helmet.

I honestly don't know what to make of the whole thing

I realize everyone will have their opinions on all this stuff, and that's fine. I'm not going to argue about what hits I think should and shouldn't be allowed anymore. I just find it comically sad at this point. So, whatever...

I was thinking about this today when they were having the same conversation on the radio.

I never imagined a point where I would lose interest in the NFL. And while I'm still interested, I am starting to see a point in the not-too-distant future where they have over-regulated the game to the point that it is no longer entertaining to watch. When this happens, I find something better to do on Sundays.

This is not a threat or anything, but just a statement as a consumer that the product that I grew up loving is slowly being diluted to something where my frustration with regulations overshadows my enjoyment.

So ridiculous. The receiver had turned up field with the ball. He wasn't defenseless, he actually saw the tackler and got lower to absorb the hit (a natural reaction). If the helmets ever touched, it was because the receiver went low. I'm pretty sure that whoever is coming up with these fines never played a game of football in their life.

Actually I want to say he was a safety.

Bostic will be paying $5955 not $21k. The CBA sets a max on fines at 25% of one paycheck and Bostic makes $405k.

Note to all NFL'ers. Hit like Bostic and lose money. Hit like Swearinger and have some media people say nasty things about you.

I think the choice is easy.

Bostic lead with the crown is why..Swearinger didn't

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...140505413.html

Competition committee is going to review the Swearinger hit.


For conversational sake

My thought... It was a nasty clean hit. I hate that it happened to Keller or if it happened any player. Swearinger said he was going lower so he wouldn't hit him in the head and avoid the fine..ok I see at..say the NFL says no hitting below the thighs..man,we are talking about a strike zone in baseball area. With two moving targets and they expect a safety to react that fast not knowing if the receiver is going to duck down or not?

If the NFL ever turns tackling into some arbitrary concept like baseball's strike zone, I think this could be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back for me.

It's interesting to read this piece about Pollard, concerning the approaching "NFL strike zone." It appeared in January of this year.
