Player safety. Penalties didn't deter them from not making correct form tackles, which is the root cause of the injuries. They're hoping that the fines will.


the fines wont either

We'll see.

These fines all go towards a charity of the player's choosing, so I really don't see an issue with them at least trying. The worst possible outcome is the millionaires give some money to a good cause.

I feel like refs should be fined for hits they miss. Hold the refs accountable for not making the right call too since that's their job. Random thought and I think this is the best place for it.

We're both plays flagged? I don't remember the Landry penalty.

Mularkey said the refs made incorrect calls on (I believe) Blackmon and Brewster's blocks that were flagged in the game.


Yeah. Knighton for going Helmet to Helmet with Luck on the interception, and Landry for going shoulder to shoulder with Luck as he was sliding after a scramble.

Knighton's is the standard H2H fine, Landry's the standard for a clean, non-malicious late hit.


Yeah, i really can't say i have much a grievance with either fine. Just 'cause Landry went and gave Luck a pat on the back and apologized after, doesn't make it not an illegal play.

Knighton's was kinda...errr, soft. But it's not hard to understand why it's a fine.

And honestly, it's really not a big deal. Player safety is important, and i seriously doubt these fines put either play out of house and home. Wink

To a point I agree. Maybe not for all hits as it's not possible to see everything, but at least for ones on QBs. Fine them for missing them and for calling them wrong.
