    21K for running over Daniel Manning and using his helmet to do so. Unbelievable.

    This dude doesn't even make that much money to begin with..

    This is absolutely ridiculous.. I'm disgusted. Football will fall off the map as a sport if this bullsh*t continues.

    I had no idea that runners couldn't go into another player head first.

    It has to do with being in the tackle box I believe. It's only when the runner is outside the tackle box can he not lower his head. I thought he was inside the box if I remember correctly, even though he was about ten yards downfield. Heck, there wasn't even a flag so obviously the refs had no issue with it.

    I'm disgusted with all these fines.

    Simple solution, use soft helmets.

    Fair Rule, now defenders can't use their arms/hands or helmet.
