Looks like one Patriot got caught up in the dragnet for a measley $5k. Not only was the Ward hit on his head and neck area, it caused him to bobble the pass on his way to the ground so he lost the reception/first down ON REVIEW! BTW, it also caused a neck injury.

NFL fines Woodley, Stewart and others

The NFL handed out multiple fines on Friday for infractions from games in Week 10, led by Titans tackle David Stewart.

Stewart was fined $20,000 for a late hit against the Dolphins in Week 10.

Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley earned a $12,500 fine for a roughing the passer hit against the New England Patriots. There was no fine assessed in that game for a hit that knocked Steelers receiver Hines Ward out of the game.

Bucs safety Cody Grimm was fined $7,500 unnecessary roughness when he hit a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area, according to NFL Network.

Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis was fined $5,000 for a chop block against the Steelers, according to the Boston Herald.

Anyone have a link to the Ward hit. I want to see it, just so that my head explodes since there was no fine. How can this selective enforcement/non-enforcement even pretend to be justified?

It's like Animal Farm, or something.

Even more fuel to the fire. This illegal hit broke his streak!! He had the catch but the helmet hit made him bobble it. Remember Hines wobbling off the field? I remember clearly...looking for the video...

I THOUGHT THE NFL WAS GETTING AGGRESSIVE WITH HELMET HITS TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF CONCUSSIONS!!!

http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2010/11/14/hine ... eturn-que/ (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2010/11/14/hines-ward-injury-update-leaves-after-hit-to-helmet-return-que/)

Wide receiver Hines Ward suffered a concussion on a hard hit with Patriots safety Patrick Chung late in the first quarter of New England's 39-26 Sunday night win. Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed the news in his postgame press conference. The Steelers had initially announced that Ward had a neck injury.

With 14 seconds left in the first quarter, Ward and Chung appeared to collide helmet-to-helmet as Ward attempted to haul in a 5-yard catch. Ward was initially given the reception, but the play was challenged by Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and reversed to an incompletion. Ward walked off the field with the help of the Steelers' training staff and did not return -- the overturned play left Ward without a catch on the night, breaking his streak of 186 consecutive games with a reception.

"He will go through his normal battery of tests after sustaining a concussion," Tomlin said regarding Ward's status for the Steelers' Week 11 matchup with Oakland. "We'll see where we are in terms of next week."

Ward led the Steelers in receptions heading into Sunday night with 30.

Its amazing, isnt it? Something tells me its becoming a badge of honor for this team though. Of course James Harrison leads the way with 3 fines so far and he is also the leading candidate to be the first suspended. :Beer

I have only two questions.....

1) Would Harrison have been fined or penalized for the same hit?

2) How would Steelers fans react to that fine or penalty


My thoughts:

1) He would definitely have been fined and possibly flagged as well.

2) We would react with expectation awaiting the announcement and then mild outrage upon hearing about another $25K in fines for JH. That outrage would be somewhat justified though since we now know that it is not a fineable offense for someone wearing another uniform.

Also.....if there was a flag on the play, the Pats would not have challenged the catch because the penalty would have assured the first down anyway so the only challenge would be over the 7-8 yards the play gained. Thus the streak would still be alive. I am not upset about the streak ending as I have said in the past I see the team doing unproductive things to protect it, but just stating that thought.

T.O... JH would have been fined at least 75k for that, considering it would be his 3rd h2h hit (as far as God sees it)

Skip Bayass said today on ESPN that Ben dove like Manu Genobili, the worst diver in the NBA. They were making a joke about it, and laughing at Ben. Said Seymour did the wrong thing, but they said Ben was trashtalking (shouldn't have done that) so that's what happens in the league and isn't it a shame that they are taking the toughness out of the game. Change the name to Tom and the comedy becomes a tragedy.

I would like to see these "tough" guy pundits take that shot from Seymour and then call it a flop, that was not a sissified hit to the face.

Seymour's punch may cost him

By: Mike Bires Beaver County Times

PITTSBURGH — Richard Seymour isn’t considered a dirty player. But what he did to Ben Roethlisberger might be the dirtiest deed in the NFL this season.

“I haven’t seen a quarterback get punched since I’ve been in this league,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.

But that’s exactly what happened late in the first half Sunday during the Steelers’ 35-3 rout of the Oakland Raiders.

Just after Roethlisberger threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, Seymour, a defensive tackle, blind-sided Roethlisberger by slamming his right hand into Roethlisberger’s face mask.

Seymour slugged Roethlisberger just as he was congratulating some of his offensive linemen. Roethlisberger, who was not taunting Seymour or any of the Raiders, was not injured.

“That was real cheap,” Steelers guard Chris Kemoeatu said.

Right after Seymour slugged Roethlisberger, Kemoeatu retaliated by punching Seymour. Both players were flagged for offsetting personal foul penalties, but Seymour was immediately ejected from the game by referee Tony Corrente.

Roethlisberger, who threw for three touchdowns and ran for a score, chose not to criticize Seymour, a 10th-year pro who played in five Pro Bowls when he played for Patriots.

“Yeah, it blew my mind … (but) I don’t want to dwell on the negative of the game,” Roethlisberger said. “I was not expecting that from him.”

“I am definitely surprised,” Kemoeatu said. “He’s been in this business for a long time. I thought that was uncalled for on his part.”

As for his part: “I overreacted. Me and him were exchanging words and punches the whole game. I’m not mad I did it. I might get a FedEx package (with a fine letter from the NFL) on Monday. But I’d do it again if I had to. I thought it was real cheap on his part.”

While Seymour’s punch on Roethlisberger was a cheap shot, it figures to cost him a bundle. He’ll likely be fined by the NFL and possibly suspended.

So says Steelers linebacker James Harrison, who’s been fined three times this year for a total of $100,000. One of Harrison’s fines cost him $75,000.

“The play’s over with. Ben’s celebrating with his teammates, and you punch him in the head,” Harrison said. “I don’t know. We’ll see. I’m playing within the rules of the game as far as I’m concerned. I make a hit that I can’t stop from making and the guy (Cleveland’s Mohamed Massaquoi) lowers his head into my hitting angle, and they fine (me) $75,000.

“So what do they do to a guy who actually punched a guy in his face?’

After the game, Seymour apologized and said he was caught of guard when he noticed Roethlisberger moving toward him.

“First and foremost, I apologize to my teammates,” Seymour said. “You never want to do anything to hurt the team.

“You always want to protect yourself, but there’s no excuse. I’m not sure why (Roethlisberger) ran up on me, I just turned around … it was a natural reaction.”

Harrison and Woodley looking at other fines?

November 22nd, 2010


The agent for James Harrison said he expects to hear Tuesday whether the Steelers outside linebacker has been fined a fourth time by the NFL this season.

Harrison has already accumulated $100,000 in fines for three separate plays, and he was flagged for roughing the passer in the Steelers’ 35-3 win against the Raiders.

His hit on Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell seemed downright tame compared to the ones that ultimately delivered pretty significant hits to the three-time Pro Bowler’s check book.

Still, Bill Parise, who represents Harrison, is bracing for yet another fine.

“I think it’s possible,” Parise said, “particularly because it’s James. There’s going to be some money spent in that game.”

Indeed, Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour will and should get at least a hefty fine for slugging Ben Roethlisberger after the Steelers quarterback threw a touchdown pass.

The second man in, left guard Chris Kemoeatu, is also certain to get fined for hitting Seymour in defense of his quarterback.

Outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley said after the game that he too is expecting a fine after getting called for roughing the passer.

The roughing the passer calls on Woodley and Harrison were questionable and the personal foul penalty that free safety Ryan Clark drew for a helmet to helmet hit was simply a blown call.

Per NFL rules, the Steelers have the right to ask Carl Johnson, the NFL’s vice president of officiating, to give them his opinion on any calls they question.
