A complete and utter joke. F Roger Goodell. I honestly don't care what happens to that turd.

There is no way JJ Watt could have done anything any differently than he did. Stafford lowered his head towards Watt. So WATT the eff do you expect defenders to do, Roger? Man, Goodell is a freaking moron.

Picture of the hit (from PFT). Looks like a textbook clean tackle to me.

Yep. His head is clearly looking up. His arms are out to wrap around Stafford. I honestly don't see anything Watt could have done differently.

Once again, **** you Goodell.

Also, its kinetic energy. You hit a guy in his chest, and his head is going to snap forward. You cant ask the players to defy physics.

Agreed.

They penalize a guy $16k for a completely legal, textbook tackle, but then only double the fine when a guy kicks another guy in the junk, and do nothing basically when an offensive player cuts a defenders legs out from under him and injures him for the season?

Does the NFL realize they fined Slauson less for his illegal block on Brian Cushing?

Dick Butkus was on our airwaves yesterday during one of the afternoon sports shows. They asked him about the 'wussification' of the league, and he said that he can see both sides of it. On the one hand, the league risks over-regulating everything to the point where some of the fundamental aspects are being altered. But, he also understood the drive toward a safer sport as more and more studies are coming out about brain trauma and long-term effects on player health.

He said as along as they tackle, then the basic nature of the sport will stay the same. When they stop tackling and hitting, then we are looking at a completely different game.

The issue here is Watt tackled and it was deemed illegal. The NFL needs to put flags on the QBs if this was worth $15750. He can't hit him low. He can't him high and now he can't hit him in the chest. Where else can he hit him? The released this now so all the talk shows could not hammer the league on this because they know damn well they are in the wrong.

I am stunned, this is such total and complete BS. Everyone needs to tweet Roger he is a moron.

Doesn't really matter to me whether something was flagged or not in a game. Refs make horrible calls all the time. A play should be judged on the merits of the play and not on what the ref thought who got one view of it at full speed from whatever angle he had, if he even saw it all.

I've supported the NFL on a lot of the safety measures. I don't have a problem with asking the secondary to not launch at heads, to not hit the head on blind side blocks when a hard block somewhere less damaging would be plenty, etc.

But this time I'm just beside myself. Watt is pretty much a poster child for the kind of responsible but hard play the NFL wants. This play was a textbook play they should be teaching from, of not aiming high, of tackling the QB's body. It's one thing if a ref in the game can't tell violent vs incidental contact between helmets at full speed. The NFL front office watching on replays have no excuse for getting it this wrong.
