How can James Harrison be fined for the below hit? Last time I checked, this is the way you are taught to hit starting from the first practice of midget football.
If I recall correctly the technique is to drive your face mask through the players chest with your arms wrapped. The hit below looks like picture perfect form to me. If you can't hit the player in the head and you can't hit the player around the knees, and now you can't hit the player in the midsection then how are you supposed to tackle?
Why doesn't James Harrison learn that he should just punch a player in the face and get his 25k worth? Harrison was recently fined for the 4th time totaling 125k for a so called "illegal" hits. This time costing him 25k.
The hit wasn't illegal, it was a clean it. What is most frustrating is that Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan got into a fist fight during the game and ejected but they were only fined 25k. A week ago, Oakland Raider defensive end punched Ben Roethlisberger in the face and was ejected but he was only fined 20k.
James Harrison legally hits Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and he is fined 25k for the hit.
Huh!?! How do you explain that Rodger Goodell?
