    Well, at least there is some good news on this crap (mostly due to his pittance of a salary):

    Gotta thank the NFL though, they have just given him some free publicity and credibility, and any WR who HASNT seen that hit before, has definitely seen it now.

    True that. Thank the NFL and the retired players lawsuit that made all this caution possible.

    It was an illegal hit and worthy of a fine.

    Launching your body like a projectile is not only very dangerous and unneccesary, it's also terrible tackling fundamentals. Doing so, regardless of whether you aim at someone's head or lower body, is extremely dangerous for both players... i.e. Keller (devastating soft tissue injury) and Willie (minor brain trauma which has a cumulative effect).

    You can play and/or enjoy watching the game of football without the "head-hunting" and "punishing the receiver" bullshit. Barbaric idiots are the reason football is slowly dying... I coach HS ball and player numbers continue to decline, because the sport is considered too dangerous by parents. The NFL has the right idea, making the game safer, both short term and long term.

    Just because a person knows and understands the risks involved doesn't mean you shouldn't attempt to reduce those risks. Like many, I admire toughness, but after a certain point... toughness simply becomes stupidity. The only thing the NFL is doing is forcing players to use proper tackling techniques, while this removes the huge hits, it doesn't really fundamentally change the game... players still run, block and tackle.

    Is there more to the rule? Why was it prohibited? Define.

    Rule 12, Section 2, Article 7: Players in a Defenseless Posture. It is foul if a player initiates unnecessary contact against a player who is in a defenseless posture.

    The (b) part is the definition of the "Prohibited contact against a player who is in a defenseless posture..."
    The (2) part is second example of prohibited contact reading as, "Lowering the head and making forcible contact with the top/crown or forehead/"hairline" parts of the helmet against any part of the defenseless player's body;"

    So yeah listen to da non MOGUL posting here that can actually find a 2012 rule book,... go right ahead if yas wanna read
    ABOUT Helmut to Helmut
    ABOUT helmut to face mask
    ABOUT leading with his head

    AGAIN THE RULE THEY FINED HIM ON

    A-11 why the league's considered the receiver to be in a defenseless posture your guess is as good as mine.
    Thats what the hub- bubs been all about ,...

    When this frist came down ealrier today ,... most of the radio shows,... the Score ,...ESPN ,.. Were all pretty much like WTF ??? with regard to the terminology used.


    Now if Bostic hit the guy and he wasn't targeted ,.. Or Willey missed a catch then was leveled like that I COULD UNDERSTAND

    HOW MUCH MORE DOES THE GAME NEED TO BE WUSSIFIED by likes of Goodell and his types like the joker here.

    They might as well fit them flags and put 'em on pay per view
