gotta give dariderfan some credit for acknowledging that a rider player got away with a slap on the wrist. Imagine a rider fan having the integrity to stand and demand that a rider player get the real punishment that he deserves :twisted:
its only a dirty hit if he meant to hit him in the helmet andor if he meant to injure him. It is clear to anyone objective that he was aiming lower, that his intent was only to tackle, maybe cause a fumble, and that Wynn ducked into his helmet.
personally, I dont care if they fined suspended or did nothing. What gets me is that one guys is only fined while another guy is suspended. The only rational I can think of is that in their judgement, the one helmet to helmet was intentional, while the other was not.
quoting george black "we're trying to enforce a rulebook that says you cannot contact a quarterback above the shoulders. period. we can't determine intent. we'd have to be mindreaders. sympathetically, in schultz's case, wynn ducks alittle bit."
