Yep start making them sit on the bench and losing a few hundred thousand, instead of 10 to 50 thousand!

Traumatic brain injury is part of the game.

Denine that better please..
Daunta Robinson(sp) did NOT apply a cheap shot.. it was a CLEAN shoulder to the sternum... Yes, the helmets did make contact, but the helmet was NOT used to lead.. No FOUL!
The dude from the Patriots.. 100% Cheap Shot Fine him and suspend him
Harrison.. 1st hit on Cribbs.. Helmet to Helmet, but I can't see it was intentional... Cribbs started to go down just before the impact, thus lowering the helmets to contacting each other
Harrison... 2nd Hit (on the other dude I can't spell his name at all).. Kinda grey, but very UNNECESSAY, so I agree with the fine there..
Just put flags on everyone and stop pretending.... Getting kind of stupid... Harrison makes MILLIONS each year, so a $75K fine is "chump change" to him. Same with the other BAD hits.. But Football is VIOLENT... That's why they make sooooooo much.... LET THEM PLAY

What's asinine about this is that defensive players cannot lead with the helmet, but offensive players can. Every running back does it.
I heard Harrison on the Dan Patrick show yesterday and he stated that he doesn't hit a person with the intent to cause injury, but he does want them to feel it. I believe the statement was I want to hurt him. He went on to clarify exactly what he meant by hurt and explicitly said he never intends to injure someone, but he's going to hit them as hard as he can legally because he knows they will hit him otherwise. He also pointed out that there are hits that are considered legal by the league that have caused serious and even career ending injuries (Low hits to the knees for example). The difference is that today's athletes are stronger and faster and the collisions are much more violent. I agree, let them play
