NFL Makes Money From Illegal Hits

As everyone now knows, the National Football League (NFL) commissioner, Roger Goodell is cracking down on helmet-to-helmet and “devastating hit”. As far as “devastating hits” go, I couldn’t begin to define what that means or how the NFL plans to categorize such hits.

I think everyone agrees they don’t like seeing plays getting carted off the field on stretchers. Likewise, no one would wish neurological damage.

With all that being said, the NFL are hypocrites by fining and possibly suspending players for unintentional hits. The NFL makes millions of dollars from these “illegal” hits. It will interesting to see who will be the first agent or player to sue the NFL for monetizing a hit that was classified as illegal by the league and fined the player. Here are just a few items where the NFL is cashing in:

1) A picture of James Harrison’s “illegal” hit being sold by an NFL vendor (Click link for details)

2) The “Moment of Impact” DVD. (Click link for details)

3) Fining the Players (Where does the money go???)

4) NFL Network (segments that glorify illegal hits)

5) ESPN (formerly the “Jacked Up” segments)

6) FOX / CBS / ESPN announcers & replays that glorifying these hits

Welcome to Planet Steelers, SteelersFever Members!

I would just like to give a warm, Planet Steelers welcome to the sudden influx of traffic and membership to the Planet Steelers Forum (i.e. Message Board) mostly due to the recent transpiring that has occurred at SteelersFever. SteelersFever has been around a long time and is one of the first fan-based Pittsburgh Steelers sites I’ve visited. It’s unfortunate that these events have occurred and I wish SteelersFever the best. With that being said, I am ecstatic about the new memberships and we are glad to have you.

Planet Steelers has seen an incredible amount of growth the past couple of years (basically 2 years old) and this has continued for quite some time and I don’t see Planet Steelers slowing down.

I must say that I am lucky to have such a great membership base. The discussions, news updates, etc posted by our members is unmatched in my honest opinion. I can’t tell you the last time I visited a site other than PlanetSteelers.com for the most thorough and up to date Pittsburgh Steelers news. This includes Fox Sports, ESPN, SI.com, etc. Planet Steelers is just unmatched for the die hard Steelers Fan.
