    Chung fined 5,000 for late hit

    http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/new-england-patriots

    Mike Reiss
    Second-year Patriots safety Patrick Chung, who played a big role in the team’s season-opening victory over the Bengals, has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness. Chung’s fine was a result of a late hit in Week 1.

    Chung was credited with a team-high 16 tackles by in-game statisticians and played a key role in the team’s strong defensive performance.


    Chung was not penalized in the game.


    Just curious, anyone know which hit this was?  I saw the game and he was flying around the field but I don't know which hit they are talking about.  It wasn't penalized but I don't want to say what I think of the fine without seeing the hit in question.

    I'm pretty sure I seen him hit a guy in the 5th row on the visitors side along with everyone else on the field but I didn't see this one.

    I just remember one play where a ball-carrier was pretty much down and Chung buried him with his shoulder up around the head as the guy was inches from being down, classic Rodney Harrison finish. To me, it was borderline, not worthy of a fine or penalty, but was certainly unnecessary.

    Hey, I wouldn't mind if he eaned a $5k fine every week...and the reputation that would come with that. Safeties need to be mean and untrustworthy and create a little doubt for receivers thinking about going over the middle.

    Happens all the time.

    As Pats fan well knows, officials miss stuff all the time (and often times -- just for fun  -- see things that aren't there). The league officers, however, review all the tape of all the games, and those worthies don't miss a trick. It's the same logic the cops use to justify scanning every license plate on the road. You might be doing something wrong they don't know about. Got to fill up those coffers somehow.

    I missed it too, and was wondering the same thing Shenanigan. Gotta love that there is someone back there with some real attitude though. And at any rate, I am glad it wasn't caught by the refs.

    I'd rather see him get fined than let up.

    If he was fined 5k for his play during the season opener then I hope he gets fined every game.  He had a great game.

    Re: Chung fined 5,000 for late hit

    Wait...a player can get fined even though no penalty was called?

    Then how many fines are they going to be doling out this season?  Because his hit was marginally late at worst, and must happen about 10 times per week in the NFL.

    Loved when I heard this. When was the last time we picked a young player in the draft that ran around the field hitting everything in sight? He did look like a smaller version of Harrison out there, hope he can keep it up.
