Bostic also is going to contest the fine and get it down to just under 6k. No they won't look at the cost, they'll look at the fact that they made a rule to reduce head trauma and that they are attempting to enforce it. Actually I don't disagree w/you. Butkus said last year that they need to remove the armor of these guys, go back to a leather, facemaskless helmet. He was laughed at, but I got the point. No way in hell is someone going to lead w/their head or head down if they don't have a hardhat protecting them.
