Hanks initiates the fine, but I'm sure Goodell signs off on it, so yeah, Goodell deserves to get dumped on. He's going to ruin this beautiful game.

The fine is total BS. Basically re-affirms refs can throw a flag for anything.

Sadly, I think you are right. Makes it pointless to even build a defense anymore. While my love for the seahawks has increased, I am becoming less of a fan of the NFL overall.

Why not just make a 2 yard rule around QB's. Just if you're within 2 yards of the QB he's down, that way he never gets hit, touched or breathed on.

Amen. This is why I watch way more college ball these days. The NFL has too many damn rules. No hits to the head, no hits below the knees, roughing the QB, pass interference a spotted foul, etc. In college they let them play more and the defense gets away with more. Its just more balanced. The pro's is more geared to supplement the offenses and give the offenses an advantage. When is the last time you saw an offensive player called for helmet to helmet, face mask, or the rarely called pass interference? You can't tell me the offensive players don't committ those fouls too.

If Goodell had it his way you'd be forced to tenderly caress the QB to the ground like you were lowering a beautiful woman into a bed of freshly picked rise petals.

Anyone wonder why all of a sudden the fines, calls on us, the sudden testing and findings of drugs and attention has been on the extreme negitive since that 49er game?

The sad thing is Earl could have spent twice the money and just kicked Tannehill in the junk to get him to drop the ball. That is the joke that has become the penalty and fine system in the NFL.

Pretty sad they still went and fined him for it. There's something wrong with the process. Anybody have a .gif of the "hit"? It was like the least malicious thing ever.


ok good people this is where you explain to me how the NFL is NOT trying to push the niners into the superbowl and hold back any team that poses a threat, drug tests? fines? sure I'm just paranoid.. lol

I've seen way worse hits from niners that didn't even draw a flag..

gonna say it again, "the league is a JOKE in terms of officiating and rules"

there's a huge problem with the officiating and penalties especially when it comes to CONSISTENCY!!!

but just be quiet about it people, sit down like good little sheep and ignore the corruption and bias, after all its good for you.

This is utter bullshit.
What is stupid is that Earl could have t-boned him in the ribcage and just destroyed him and he would get no fine at all.

Have they fined him for the tweet yet? Can't have the players criticizing the league now.

This thought actually occurred to me and then I immediately dismissed it as paranoid.

I don't think it's paranoia to notice how big market teams and the east coast in general tend to have things "mysteriously" fall their way, like them getting scheduling considerations for traveling to play westward when West Coast teams have ALWAYS had to contend with that problem (albeit in the opposite direction).

A lot of people, and not just Packers fans, are still real pissed about that simultaneous catch ruling, which may be something else to throw into this whole bubbling cauldron...

This is sickening, I cannot find the words. Are they high? What the hell? This league office is a travesty, they are wiping their asses with the game I love. Where did these morons come from and why are they running the NFL? They have zero idea what this game is about nor do they care about what has made football the sport in America for decades, this league is becoming an absolute joke.

I had that thought today about how convienient they come after the two best corners in the league, just in time for the playoffs.Then give the best free safety in the league a ridiculous fine for not being able to stop himself in midair.

The worst part about this, that I haven't seen anybody else mention, its that it in effect cheapens the impact of actual malicious hits by making this hit somehow equivalent to those hits.

Roger Goodell is not to blame. If you want to blame anybody blame all the ex players who are suiing the NFL for billions. They're the reason that the league is so ultra sensitive.

Personally, I dont care about the "pussification" of the game. I dont enjoy the game any less today because they're trying to protect players then I did a decade ago. In fact, i cant understand why any fans would be against rules that protect the players we love.

I thought it was very obviously against the rules and a penalty. I dont have any problem at all with that rule. I do think the fine is rather ridiculous, but honestly, I dont care because its not my money. And it most certainly does not ruin the NFL for me.

Gentlemen... the NFL are in ass-saving mode. The media are ripe for the concussion issue, they've got THAT ball and are running with it. The media gets their story and the NFL is on the hook for billions in lawsuits from past, current and future players, their families and ancestors. Football concussion long-term effects is an ambulance chasers wet dream, likewise for class action lawyers. One way for the league to mitigate damages is for them to "get tough" on plays that might be considered blows to the head.

It's all about mitigating damages, and Earl is in the damage path.

Bullshit call, bullshit fine, bullshit rule.

There was no mallice and contact was eventually incidental due to the impossibility to alter direction while player was still in the air. I am just dumbfounded by the decision to fine.

The even more disturbing thing is that in the NFL's little fiefdom they are the judge, jury, and executioner. There is no equitable means to try and present an appeal. Once that hammer falls you better get the checkbook ready.

The NFL is testing my fandom... To be continued...

Goodell is the worst thing to happen to the league in a long, long time. He's a joke.



This is why my hours of watching NFL games this year has been cut in half. I'm starting not to give a crap anymore.

at what point does the QB assume some responsibility in avoiding injuries?

its a joke they can hang in there and even move towards the impending doom, fall down and flop like salmon then when the flag comes out they're suddenly all better..

what a joke this is becoming

I've actually leaned more toward Goodell for cracking down on dirty hits, but this defies all logic and the intent of the parameters, IMO.

Let's just call it the NFFL (National Flag Football League) and be done with it.

DISGUSTING.

This is where I'm getting to be. It seems like the NFL singles out those teams and players that aren't on the "money" teams and the NFL is looking more and more like a sham.

Was watching All Access and they had a great shot of the "hit." Absolute BS, and the fact that the NFL fined him for it? Beyond BS! Pathetic.

Illegal contact was a major change. Was that Goodell?
