    Antonio Smith has been fined 21K for kicking Richie Incognito in the head. He is planning on appealing. Thought? I am not happy.

    Unfortunately, if you look at the video replay carefully, Incognito's explanation to the 2 arm resistance to hold Smith from recovering the fumble seems to prove true.

    Incognito's explanation makes sense...this happens all the time when the ball pops out. Smith doesn't have a squeaky clean reputation either.

    Best defense is a good offense.

    The Dolphins submitted three plays to the NFL.

    No word if Incognito got fined for anything. If you watch the replay, there's all sorts of mischief going on.

    I'm not sure what Antonio Smith was supposed to do if big dude has death grip on his ankles and won't let go after the whistle and the refs aren't doing a damned thing.

    Hey, I made a gif of this play last night! I love Thomas' reaction to the hit. It's like he ran into a brick wall.

    I should have made it go a few seconds more so you could see the kicking... :)

    I honestly don't care about this. At least he wasn't suspended from any games...

    Rather it looked like a trip...........tripping has been fined ~$12,000 in the past.

    That hit put him out of the game .... Looked like it knocked him silly.

    Incognito's explanation kinda falls apart on that angle. The last time I saw a move like that was on the Walking Dead - episode: Leg eaters

    Antonio Smith upset Richie Incognito wasn't fined

    Where's that ignorant reporter from Jax that likes to bash Houston? Did he visit Houston radio this week?

    Yeah, that ******* was using his right hand and was twisting...he wasn't merely hanging onto Smith.

    Can't wait for him to get obliterated one of these days, a dose of his medicine.

    That guy wouldn't let go even after being repeatedly kicked. Definitely a nutcase.

    Smith has been knownto get a flag or two & when I started reading I thought great we complain about dirty player but it is our guy. Then I watch video about 8 times and I cannot blame Smith. Iggie held on way too long & should have earned flag for holding. I'd have kicked the dog mess out of him also.
