    If it was Luck, Brady or Manning, there would have been a 50 yd penalty...and fined $100,000!:disappointed:

    The hit initially looked worse (as in more blatant of a penalty) in real time. I called Griff an idiot for it in the gameday thread. But once they replayed it and slowed it down, like most of you I'm just not sure what else he was supposed to do. Can't hit high so you try to go low. Still get flagged. Something's gotta give.

    That is a standard rich athlete response.

    Hopefully the bounty money he earned for that hit will help offset the fine.

    That's garbage. Their stupid rookie TE dove down and got himself knocked out, there was nothing Griff could do. He didn't intend to hit him in the head. Hopefully he'll win his appeal.

    I'm pissed about this one. If Gooddell was anywhere near me I'd cold knock his ass out. He'd be in the same position as that receiver.


    Bullshit.
