And in a few weeks, they'll show that hit in a commercial for the NFL. Hippocrates at their finest.

Thanks for clarification.

Just as an aside, if the refs on the field didn't call the "defenseless" hit, they would also had to interpret that as a completed catch.........and it should have been ruled a fumble........and ultimately ruled a turnover.

There was another angle showed during the broadcast that after viewing it I could swear KJax's head never hit the receiver's head. Wright's head snapped back from the hit to the shoulder. I thought it was a legit hit. I need to go to Game Rewind and find it again.

Kareem should've targeted the knees instead of the chest/shoulder area.

The Jets OLineman that ended Brian Cushing's season with a blindside cutblock away from the play only got fined 10k.

Exactly, fine the Refs for missing the fumble call even if it was voided out for a pansy penalty.

As for hitting high, Wright is 5' 10" and crouched down for impact, what was Jackson suppossed to do. Obviousley Jackson didn't see Wright's "flags" that he was suppossed to pull off.

I understand the helmet to helmet stuff, and even the QB stuff even though it impacts the game, but this was complete BS.

Where was the flag and fine for the hit put on Lestar Jean (I think it was the Indy game) when he was up in the air and got drilled in the kidneys, it don't get no more defenseless then being in mid air extended, pretty sure thats was text book.

Hey Goodell go eff yourself.

These days its like a little person playing baseball, the defense has to hit a player with a 6" x 6" strike zone.

Nothing is wrong with the freaking socks. I tell you what is wrong. Seeing a guy with his shirt untucked (and that's pushing it) and seeing players crack of dawn everytime they get tackled. Where's the fines for that??

Me, too.

The penalty on hits is just the slippery slope that will eventually legislate football to a non-contact sport one day.

But the socks is just goofy, mind-numbing micro-management where it clearly reveals that the league's primary agenda is focus on image.

That same focus on image is most likely behind all these hit penalties. They seem to care more about how the league is perceived than actually improving player safety (i.e. Thursday games, talks of 18 game schedule, etc.).

You're absolutely correct!

As the NFL rules are written, uniform pants must reach over the knee and may not be cut or altered in any way. Players are required to wear two socks on each foot; a combination of white and their team color for each leg. Wearing only one of the socks is a violation of NFL rules and will result in a fine. Socks must be pulled up over the calf and meet with the uniform pants at the knee.

All you have to do is review game film or pics to see how arbitrary these "equipment" calls are. You will randomly find GROSS corruption of the rules every game by several players, such as the knees totally uncovered......I've seen AJ with no coverage of his knees either by pants or socks in many games.........and no, it wasn't after he skidded on the turf. Maybe for AJ, the Texans need to wash the unis in cold water and avoid drying on "HOT!"





And last but not least, the memorable:


AND NEXT TIME, DON'T EVEN THINK OF PULLING DOWN MY SOCKS!!!!!!

I think in this case, the fact that everyone else's white socks weren't displayed in the manner that Kj's were is why he was fined. I could be wrong, but I think I remember someone else getting fined the same way a couple of years ago.

It's something that's usually not called, but the team has got to be uniform, or they'll fine players for it.

By the by..... did Kj get fined for that hit on Reggie Wayne last week, that was called, but wasn't a hit to the head?

Default Re: KJ Fined for Vikings Hit........and High Socks!

Someone please explain to me like I'm a 5 year old how sock length effects the game of football?

They need to do something with the helmet to helmet call when a player is being tackled and he lowers his head to hit the tackler, how is it the tackler responsible for that collision?

It is one thing if he lauches into the ball carriers head or hits him high, but if he is going for the tackle in the chest area and the ball carrier lowers his head that is unreasonable.
