$15,250.

Pollard is right, You are making this the Flag Football League.


Player Saftey is important, but these fines are BS. IT IS A VIOLENT GAME! We are not playing chess here.

We need a new Comish

Please define "unnecessary roughness". Was the offensive player in possession of the ball? Yep. Was he in any way shape or form defenseless? Nope. Was their helmet-to-helmet contact? Nope.

Sooo.... what's the problem here?

Sounds like a heads-up play on Pollard's part.

I can see where this going... Now defenders have to watch how HARD they tackle. Hugs & kisses, that'll stop those pesky ball carriers.

So, Ronaldo McClain is going to be the only LB in the league who can play?

And I think the league isn't really fining him for the Welker hit more so they are fining him for the hit on Ridley... they're just using the one on Welker as "justification".

It was actually lighter than I expected. Does that mean Ray also got fined?

What about Mayo? He had a blatant helmet-helmet on Pitta but wasn't flagged... he deserves a fine, too.

Ridley hit is clean


I know that. You know that. The whole world knows that. And the fine on the Welker hit is complete BS... so, rather than fining him for a clean hit on Ridley... fine him for a 'suspect' hit on Welker. It doesn't matter why the cash is coming, just who it's coming from and where it's going!

Lmao

The business side settled, Patriots fans can go back to imagining an alternate universe where Bernard Pollard is a mild-mannered car salesman and not a hitting machine seemingly hellbent on injuring every Patriots skill player of merit before his time in the NFL is through.

It sucks but I loved what Dean Pees's response was. Makes me like the man even more!!

“I’m sure we are up there on defensive roughing penalties somewhere. I’m sure we are at the top of the list,” Pees said. “I don’t want to say that I don’t care; I do care. I don’t ever want to get a penalty, but sometimes those penalties you think twice about coming over the middle whether you got a penalty or you didn’t get a penalty. They all take their toll. I’m not saying that I want penalties or I want to hit somebody like that, but at the same time, we aren’t going to back off. We are going to play football."

To think there was a time not too long ago when defenders were taught to "separate the ball from the receiver" on contact. There was also a time when QBs hesitated to throw balls over the middle between safeties and LBs because their WR would get annihilated. Now it's just like, "meh chuck it over the middle, its either a catch, 15 yard penalty, or a catch+15 yards".

I think the favoritism is blatant at this point. the league preaches about "player safety" then they fine a deliberate and vicious kick less then a fine for small socks. you have to be kidding me. now this . why not just turned it into a flag football league or have the guts to say if you play for any team other then the broncos or patriots or any peyton manning or brady lead team get your checkbook out cause your going to be fined if u roll your eyes too much. this is a joke and the nfl is clueless .

I can declare that nobody can tackle better than Pollard and at the same time as clean as he is; he always keeps his head down and shoulder first before launching. Therefore, if the baller keeps his head low, the impact should be the shoulder to shoulder which sometimes involves helmet contact which is impossible to avoid with fast pace football. How the hell you stop some helmet contact when both lower their head before impact?

It's BS and our players will keep playing football and Goodgirl can fine them with his perception of lady game in play.....
