Default Smith Fined $15,000

You've got to be kidding me! This is getting to be a joke, no? Does anyone think the hit on Ryan deserved this much of a fine, or any fine for that matter. Penalty? Maybe, but 15 grand??!!

Quote:
HOUSTON - Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith was fined $15,000 by the NFL for his hit on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan late in the first half of the Texans 17-10 win over Atlanta.
Quote:
"I'm super disappointed because It's enough that you give us a 15-yard flag for that type of hit and then a $15,000 fine assessed to something so minor like that, it's getting outrageous," Smith said. "The fine system is getting outrageous."
Quote:
"From my perspective I was coming off the tackle to sack the quarterback, but at the same time you're taught to cuff them with one arm and try to strip the ball with the other," Smith said. "I think when this arm came around it was here on his face, and as I came to strip the ball it kind of made his head look like it turned it, but no blow to the head or anything like that."

That is ridiculous. There was clearly no intent to injure there so the penalty should be adequate punishment.

There was no intent to cause harm in the hit, he basically just slapped Ryan in the face as he was tackling. You almost have to time and have perfect form when hitting the QB to not get flagged. No wonder the NFL is now a Passing League. Drop your QB back and odds are you'll gain at least 15 yards!

Fine is just ridiculous.

Anybody think that a couple more incidents like this and Smith will have to sit out a game?

I hope not...

But I can't see Goodell continuing to fine him and not taking away at least one game if it keeps happening...

Absolutely ridiculous. That should have only got $5k AT most. And it was not intentional at all.

It was a hit to the head & hard to determine intent in that moment. NFL needs to get concussions under control. Smith and everyone needs to lay off above the neck blows and also horse collars.

Not as upsetting as the "Hit to the Leg' or 'Blow to the 'Head' after trying to block a pass flags. He was reaching for the QB, it was not impossible to avoid or completely accidental.

I doubt this will contribute to any future suspensions.

This is probably a reputation thing.

The hit looks to be incidental....

This is preposterous (Firefox w/spell-check is awesome).

Are you sure about that? Tutus are made of that coarse hard nylon mesh material. It can be very abrasive and might chafe their delicate skin.

I don't know if you want to risk trying to outfit them in tutus. You might lose one for the season. Find something softer.

This is getting ridiculous, soon it will get to the point where players will start hesitating before making hits because they are afraid the league will steal their money.

If Harrison has not been suspended before then I don't see it happening. It would take a Suh like effort for the commish to actually sit a player. Hell, the guy from Minnesota kicked a player from the Packers in the sack and only got a fine.
