    he hit the facemask which is part of the helmet, and Bostic's facemask is facing the ground, ie lead w/ the crown. it's textbook definition of a finable hit.

    The look on the ref's face after that hit is priceless:

    The fine seems quite steep. A fine wasn't unexpected, but the NFL made money off that hit from posting it online. He's a 2nd round pick, in the preseason, the kid makes $405,000 this year. It's a borderline call, he lowered his helmet but it also looks like he went shoulder first and the guy was turning and went into his head, the WR braced himself for the hit, meaning he wasn't vulnerable. He may have been avoiding a helmet to helmet hit. I'm just not sure how you can fine a guy that much for something that had that much uncertainty.

    Where did you get this? If you created it, can you start it up a few seconds earlier so we can see the receiver grab the ball and turn? I really am trying to understand the so-called defenseless receiver call on this one.

    There's no reason to attack other members in the process.
