    There goes any chance of Adrian Peterson reaching his goals as a RB in this league going forward. Assuming they actually enforce this rule on him too.

    There rules will also make a team draft different than how they might otherwise.Smash mouth rb's will be a thing of the past. Obtaining the best throwing qb and receivers will be the goal of every team, even more than it is now.
    Ball hawking cornerbacks and safties will be high dollar commodities.
    I think folks will still watch, as long as its on tv.
    I am all for banning high hits on defenseless players, but someone who tries to stop a running back? If hes defenseless its his own fault.

    When he does it I'm sure it'll just be looked at as a "good, hard-nosed football play".

    Why do titan fan get all butt hurt about fines to players?
    Is it coming out of your pocket? As long as they are not suspended who gives a rats azzzz.

    Y'all should be more concerned about locker tossing another 120 yard gem.

    Because we care about our players, we're all one big Titan family here. Fines like this may also negatively effect how the players play. (example, Pollard might not be as aggressive, Battle may not run as hard) so it hurts the team as a whole.

    "OH WELL AS LONG AS THEY AREN'T SUSPENDED WHO CARES?" You have quite a narrow minded way of looking at it..

    It isn't the fine, it's the way the game is changing for the worse.

    I wouldn't expect a moo fan to be able to grasp that though.
