    Here's a block on the Bengals punter, Kevin Huber, trying to make a tackle on a returner. It broke his jaw.

    No penalty was called on the field but the NFL is about to rain down the fine.

    NFL's VP of officiating Dean Blandino:
    "Huber, he's a punter. And the key is he's defenseless throughout the down. So even though he's pursuing the play, he still gets defenseless-player protection. You can't hit him in the head or neck, and you can't use the crown or forehead parts of the helmet to the body."

    his shoulder hits the same time his helmet does. Looks like a clean block. It's not a tackle, so I don't think "hitting high" should apply. No one blocks at the waist.

    Either put them in inflatable sumo costumes and let them hit hard, or remove all padding and let Darwin fix the game.
    Scarecrow high fives this.

    No s***.

    How can you say he's "pursuing the play but he's a defenseless player"? So this "defenseless player" could have put a lick on the returner and stopped the play? Sure, that makes sense.

    Really starting to hate this league.
