    BS. Total BS. Are defenders going to have to stop in their tracks and identify a legal "strike zone" they can hit before making contact? Might as well not have any defenders at all.

    We need more angry frownies. (not smilies - I'm not smiling with this BS fine).

    Crown of the helmet hit, pure and simple that is, by the NFL's definition, dangerous for both the defender and the O player...and ya that hit the facemask. Could he hvae done anything to avoid it, not sure, but that is today's NFL that is very consious of concusions and their legal repercussions.

    I hadn't seen this angle before, but the contact to the facemask is only because of the whiplash effect from the hit.

    The rule is, now, head up when making contact for both the offensive and defensive player. Bostic is the example being set of the new rule. Nothing more, nothing less.

    21 k. That is stupid x10.

    At some point, however, part of the blame for making the league into the pussified version it is becoming has to come back to those suing the league. Just like all the fraudulent and worthless litigation that drives insurance and medical treatment higher and higher, the suits from former players makes the league have to do this shit. Football is a dangerous, rough, contact sport. If you don't want to play or take risks with your body, for which you will be rewarded rather handsomely, take your panties and go home.

    Should this not be the C'Mon Man of the Pre-Season?! Fined $21k?!?
    I've watched the hit several times (And I jump up and start a parade each time) and it is a text book tackle. Sure it's jarring (Which is the point!!!) but I just don't see the fine.

    IMO BOSTIC did lead with his shoulder Willey leaned in to it well actually HIS momentum brought him into the hit more AND THAT WAS A FUMBLE
