What many analysts considered to be a questionable call is apparently worthy of a 15K fine.

People can argue if the rule is right or not but it's being applied the way it's written. Can't go to the QB's head under any circumstance. I don't agree with the RULE but the call, with the way the rule is written, was correct. Fine able? No. Not to me at least. No vicious intent at all.

I understand the call, kinda. I think it's idiotic that is a penalty, but within the rules I can see why they threw it.

The fine is just stupid though.

He shouldn't have been fined. There was no clear intent with the play. The penalty was more than enough.

Barely a penalty let alone a fine. Not sure what the NFL saw in this one.

They penalized and Aaron Maybin for sneezing on Andrew Luck earlier in the season. The worst part was that it negated an Antonio Cromartie pick 6.

Wow..If he makes that play hes a god, if he goes matrix and pulls a 360 degree barrel roll right and tucks into a ball and pops out of it , hes playing with in the rules of the game....huh....


the game needs athletic plays like this to further the overall excitement of the game.. i dont agree with helmet to helmet hits or plays of that nature at all but you got to look a lot of these plays realistically.

I know its not the call in question, but I still can't get over the fact that Golden Tate ran into a corner, jumped over his back, and didn't get called for OPI.

Roger Goodell's Human Fund. amirite?

He clearly hit him in the head. All hits to the head that are forbidden (as this was) also carry a fine.

WHAT! This is ridiculous!

The call was one that should be made every time, but there wasn't any intent there to be worthy of a fine. This is the by-the-book penalty, but no fine type of hit. Considering that the Seahawks would've likely won the game if it wasn't for the penalty, there was no reason for a fine... isn't losing the game enough?

Very disappointed with the NFL on this one... and I'm a Dolphins fan and supporter of most fines in general.

Im afraid that if somebody's towel some how touches a QB's head, it is a fine. Come on man, this is just ridiculous. Its not even a flag let alone fine. So if Earl Thomas does this 3 times, that equals a suspension?
