It's football, not tiddly winks. The whining of the players about how rough and dirty some others are is getting old. Just like Brady, who can't be touched without incurring a penalty. Let the Nancies wear a skirt.

This is a direct result of Hines beating up on the Bengals and ravens. Very funny how Bart Scott and Terrell Thuggs puts a bounty on Hines Ward but when ward went after Bart Scott to block him Bart Scott ducked. Linebackers and DBs are scared of a wide receiver. LMAO. But these same linebackers love blindsiding a QB. These players today could not make it 20 years ago.

even a Stiller fan can agree that a blind side hit on a player not involved in the action 40 yards away from the ball carrier, is dirty by definition. You never played huh? Have some honor dude. Brady is different, he is INVOLVED in the action and needs to absorb more hits instead of the way they (the NFL) change the spirit of the rule in order to help him out.

"Not involved in the action?" How is someone running toward the ball carrier, trying to make a tackle, "not involved in the action?" That's who Ward hits--he doesn't go looking for towel-boys and cheerleaders standing on the sidelines. What he does is called blocking. The fact that he does it better than any receiver who ever lived doesn't make him a dirty player. I'm amazed that Ravens fans are always so sanctimonious about Ward, when Suggs put a bounty on players, and Ray Lewis jumped up after breaking Mendenhall's shoulder crowing "He's done."

I guess I'd have to add that if your defenders are sitting around "not involved in the action," then they deserve to be hit for different reasons.
