I am starting this topic just so James knows that the fans support him. He really needs to appeal that fine. He hit Marvin Jones with his shoulder. We all saw it on replay. Why did the NFL fine him? He did a great job with that hit. Appeal it and hope you can win it.

 

He has been good in the secondary all year. Hope he can come back.

I was upset it was flagged, and even more so that he got fined. It's like the NFL is saying no more violent hits, regardless of if it's head to head or leading with the crown. It was just a really hard but clean hit..

So dig gets fined for hitting a guy in the shoulder, while the guy from the Lions doesn't get fined at all for hitting Joe low?

Roger Goodell has to go. He has single handedly turned the game I love into crap. That was a terrible call and cost us on the field. There is no reason or explanation for why it cost Digs off the field besides a greedy commissioner. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible.

The other thing that gets me angry about that is that the official threw the flag about one second before Digs hit the player legally.

The officiating this year has been the worst I've ever witnessed. I'm not surprised...

Seems like every year, we keep saying this.

They've got too many rules now. trying to make the game "safer" and that's part of what's made the officiating worse overall.

This fine is even more of a joke than the flag was.

Yeah, makes one wonder if all the conspiracy feelings are justified at times.

The first testicular guard, the "Cup" was used in hockey in 1874. The first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took men 100 years to realize their brain was also important.

I see how the NFL is constructed now a days. After that concussion law suite the NFL is basically handing out fines like they are playing with monopoly money. They say the money goes to charity, but I have my doubts. To me this is close to being a criminal act.

Well, it's not just the officials. The League chimed in and fined him too.

 

I have to tell you, if that play is not legal in the NFL, I have to SERIOUSLY consider bidding adieu to the NFL. 

 

Digger timed that hit to post possession and drove the receiver out of bounds so that he could not get his feet down. He used out of bounds to nullify the play.  There was no head to head and it was necessary to break up the play.  If the fine stands at this point I'll likely not devote the time and energy to a league that is in complete disarray.

 

Personally, I think its time for a rival league. A new league that does not allow blatant head to head's on defenseless receivers but provides modern equipment for it's players and negotiates contracts with clear language to participate they assume the risk of concussions which are not clear infractions.

 

If the fine stands, I'll try to convince as many people as possible to join a "fishing league" as well.  Fall fishing is beautiful, fun and the guy that sells you the fishing gear can't take it away from you at his whim.

epic post I love it. the players get paid allot of money to play this game. they know going into it that it is a violent sport. that flag was bogus and I thought he made a great play.

I'd like to know how the league comes up with the figures for fines.  I'd like to see their list of penalties and associated fines.  Is there such an animal?

Goodell flips a coin to decide whether or not a player will be fined for a controversial play. Then, he spins a wheel similar to the one used on The Price is Right to decide the amount of money the player will be fined.
