Lynch Mobster Hit

Is $75k too much for this hit? Your thoughts on the hit.

I guess the only thing that bothers me is the fact the flag was picked up because the refs ruled it as a catch. Then reinstated the penalty when they reviewed it as incomplete. Just for that reason alone, the NFL should come to a realization that their policies on these types of hits are rediculous. A fine should have been leveyed, which it was, but $75 for playing a game where big hits occur all the time is insane.

The thing is this: The NFL is trying to cover there ass! They feel that if somebody get's seriusly hurt (which will eventually happen) the NFl will feel they covered they're ass.

The other thing is this: What was Lynch supposed to do? What if he hit Dallas Clark in the knee's? Give me a freaking break! The NFL needs to quit trying to have control of the game before somebody gets hurt trying not to hit somebody hard.

One more thing. I have NFL On Demand and I was watching the top 10 plays of the week. Guess what the #1 play was? Yep the Lynch hit. The NFL will make alot more then 75k off this hit in there hard hit videos and other promotions.

I hope that John Lynch's fellow defensive players and coaches picked up the tab on this one because it was well worth the 75k. I know I would hook up some extra cash for my comrad if he put a message to the team we would square off against in the playoffs.

As for the answer: The fine was wrong. Was it worth it? Every last dime...

Go Broncos!!!

After watching the replays myself I don't need an intentional helmet to helmet hit. Atleast not any more so then a linebacker smashing the RB at the line of scrimmage. If Lynch went to the knees, the NFL and other players would be saying that was a dirty hit, blah blah blah. In fact, what was the #1 hit on ESPN's great JACKED UP? Yep, Lynch! I think the NFL wanted to send a message based purely off of Lynch's comments after the game. The hit did not warrent a $75k fine, at $7,500 fine seemed more appropriate.
