    21k sounds steep. Does anyone know if this is his first offense?

    Another example of GODdell's regime being completely inconsistent with the penalties they dole out...

    Every NFL fan should riot around Goodell's house.

    I'm pretty sure with Taglibue's ruling and the last rulings/reversals of player suspencions, GODell is feeling the heat, no?

    I would go on strike just to remove this asshat from his commissioners job. I hate this turd like no other hot peanut filled turd I have ever hated.

    Wasn't this the hit where the receiver lowered his head as KJ was closing in?

    It reminds me of the roughing the passer penalty that Watt got last year when he launched at the QB's hip, but the QB bent forward and allowed his facemask to graze JJ's helmet.

    I'm starting to believe that the league is simply trying to artificially inflate the number of fines --whether legit or bogus-- in an effort to build a defense against lawsuits.

    Goodell sucks but it was a finable hit.

    21k is the minimum fine for this offense under the CBA.

    I'm more annoyed by the fine for the socks. Did you notice the socks during the game? Did they detract from your enjoyment of the game? Does the fine detract from your enjoyment of the NFL? It does for me.

    Yeh that just idiotic. I mean if they were some odd ball color or said something inappropriate I could see it. But wearing them too high? C'mon!!!!

    It seems like any devastating hit of any kind is subject to fines regardless of the legality of the tackle. That were one of the underlining appeal of the nfl. If Nascar started fining and suspending race car driver for crashes whoever is commissioner would wake up next day and find his car turnover and on fire.

    Ole Roger has got to be pissed, since Tags basically said, Roger is screwing up the commissioner job.

    :lol:

    Goodell needed to be taken down a few notches.

    Not only should he have not been fined, it should have been a turnover.

    Wright catches the ball and takes three steps before he is hit. He is not in the process of catching it, he has it tucked away.

    This is a case where the slow motion makes it look un-bang bang-like. The refs and NFL have stated that these plays will only be reviewed for these penalties using only timing of the hit in real-time action.
