We've made the big time.
From McClain twitter:
Where's the fine for Rackers??
So now will everyone get penalized in the game and fined after??
Seems like double jeopardy.
$5K for a stiff arm?
Wow, NFL. They just made Foster mad by giving him this fine. Be prepared Redskins defense.
WHAAAAAAAT. No way.
The fine was actually for a face mask. If you check out the highlights, you see Foster grabs it and yanks. A stiff arm is simply getting your hand up and keeping the defender away, with no grabbing or yanking.
Wtf? $5k for a facemask?
Isn't that the referees job?
Unbelieveable. He didn't even bring him down
The NFL is getting pretty creative on these fines. They would have made more money than God back in the seventies with this crap.
I've never understood why a ball carrier can legally stiff-arm a defender in the face mask when it would be a penalty for the other 21 players on the field.
They should have fined Foster for crushing the defensive back when he rolled in for his second TD...$5000 for making a man look like a little ragdoll girl.
$5,000 seems like a gnat to most NFL players but on AF's UDFA salary, that's more like a mosquito at least.
This isn't anything new. They fined one of the LYB Oilers $250 for sock violations.
I'll start taking up a kitty fund to pay their fines, IF they'll do it again!!!
That's different but just as dumb. I know they get bent out of shape about uni's, but this is the result of action on the field. One Oiler-Steeler game or any game involving the Raiders would have had players on the street with "will work for..." signs in their hands back then with this touchy-feely policy.
No fines for planting Sir Manning against his will.
Damn NFL letting Manning get abused that way.
The helmet-to-helmet I understand (even if I don't agree with it), but the non-call facemask? Are we going to start fining O-Linemen for holding too? WTH?
foster is gonna need every penny after his playing career...
a little humor at mike patrick's expense.
Ok, the Quin hit I understand. But the Foster facemask stiff-arm? You have got to be kidding me.
It's just the rule. A ball carrier can put their hand on the facemask so long as they do not grasp it and only push.
Or for hands to the face? How often does that happen a game and not get called?
