    His reaction after the hit was priceless... he just walked a few yards down the field like awww yeahhhh... I'm me...

    I could have ran into a human in mid jump and clocked him... he is such an idiot. He did TRY to lead with his shoulder though it seems.

    Wait a minute, are you trying to tell me Asante was involved in a tackle? That's a first.

    More like a sucker punch. He's also trying to play the victim card here, calling the NFL "haters".

    Thats a hefty fine for that tackle!

    He didnt purposely go in with the Helmet but it did make contact.

    Beat me to the punch lol. That's a heavy price to pay for your first hit ever.

    I remember the members here who wanted him cut because he couldn't tackle ... now he's an assassin.

    I dislike Asante, but was this clearly a helmet-to-helmet hit? I'm not seeing it.
