    BJGE FINED FOR CHOP BLOCK

    In my humble estimation this is a travesty.   

    www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/extra_points/

    Was it a legit 15 yarder?  Yeah, I suppose.  Was it an intentional chop block?  I can't imagine how any reasonable human looking at that replay could call that intentional.  The whole thing unfolded in a split second.

    This is utter BS. The only reason it was called a chop block was because Light touched the guy after the block.

    This is silly.

    I'm sure the Union will appeal.

    Wow that is just insane. He was in the process of making a legal block when Light released and entered into a new block. Was it the right call yes but even the refs would agree that it was not intentional and never endanged the person being blocked

    Hank Hill would describe the degeneration of the NFL to "lawyer ball"

    Putting obvious bias aside this is a totally B.S. fine. Should be appealed.

    Also note that Woodley fined $12,500 for hit on TB.

    Now Goodel looks to balance the scale. What a joke! The politically correct league. Classic knee jerk reaction to all the complaints from defensive players. The NFL is too legalistic and it's ruining Pro ball. Can you imagine just how many fines the old Denver Broncos would have got for chop blocks!

    fines and/or suspensions should only be handed out if the player involved was injured. BJGE was penalized 15 yards, fair enough end of story, the player being blocked wasn't hurt so move on.

    I agree 100%. What about when Harrison went for Brady's knee?

    It's not as much Goody Goodell as it is the arbitrariness of the fines. Any given week you'll see two dozen borderline personal foul calls and yet not every one is given a fine or suspension. It's the Goodell grab bag of random fines. Until the league and the Commish's office come up with set fine and suspensions the system will continue to be random and arbitrary. I call and accidental chop block on a guy to save your QB from getting hit, a good play even if it gets you penalized 15 yrds. The health of Brady is more important than any PF call. Don't believe me, then ask yourself what the ratings would be like in an Indy vs NE  game without one of the star QBs.

    As I have stated all along Goodell and/or anyone else will not be able to legislate aggressive hits out of the game. It simply will never happen. Especially when being aggressive can be equated with keeping your job (very true for defensive players).

    Better for him to get the penalty and fine than not agressively blocking.

    Goodell has been a joke from day one. Belichick could have totally exposed him when the the "Spygate" thing broke. Everybody in football knew illegal videotaping and signal stealing was going on. But Belichick chose not to be a rat and took his ridiculous punishment for something everybody else was doing.

    As for the BJGE fine? Yes it is outrageous. But it's not like he's going to pay a dime of it. His wealthier teammates will take care of it.

    I swear Goodell and Stern are having some sort of contest to see who is the bigger a sshole. I still have to give it to Stern. As far as I can tell, the NFL still isn't rigged. Of course, we'll see how I feel about that after the Pats/Colts game and Lord Manning's customary half dozen bailout pass interference calls. Hopefully none of the Pats graze a small portion of his helmet while trying to knock the ball out on a 3rd and 18. Automatic first down and 50k fine.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. Remember what the NHL looked like in the 80s before Bettman got a hold of it? Stern is doing the same thing in the NBA- absolutely destroying it.

    I think you may be underestiming the effect a misguided commisioner can have on a league.

    Re: BJGE FINED FOR CHOP BLOCK

    Misguided commish.  Doesn;t matter. If the game loses significant amounts of money Goodell (via the owners) is toast. With a large loss of TV revenue Goodell would lose his job simply by not carrying on a lucrative tradition with TV revenue. We can talk about hits and offense vs defense, but if the game loses money the commish will be the first person the owners (who have more power) will point their collective fingers at. A key selling point of the game is its overall aggressiveness; if that is extricated from the game than the game itself will lose fans and this will inevitably lead to some serious fingerpointing, mostly in the direction of Goodell. People seem to think he is some sort of god-like emperor of the NFL and he's not. If he doesn't accomplish what the owners want him to accomplish, he's gone and they hire someone new.
