    The league threatened suspensions for habitual offenders.

    This was Brackett's 3rd offense this year, and this one was the worst.

    So why no suspension? Because he is a Colt?

    THAT'S IT??? WTF?? Brackett should have been tossed from the game and suspended for the play-offs..

    So much for Goodell's BS helmet to helmet policy and habitual offenders.

    I didn't see the hit, but it sounds terrible!

    Should be suspending! Well done Roger! Glad you keep with your ideas!

    It was a dirty hit as Brackett Blindsided Amato, leading with his helmet and hitting Amato in the back of the Helmet.

    being fined only $35K is a disgrace.

    If that was Brackets third offense he should have been bounced from the game suspended and fined about $75K. If he were a pat thats prolly what would have happened.

    Wasn't Harrison fined $50K. How was this hit any less egregious?

    When is the NFL going to fine Brackett for his PED use in The Simpsons?

    Even after Merriweather appealed his fine it still ammounted to more, on his first offense, on a lesser (imo) hit.

    That hit was terrible. And his third offense. Definitely warrants a suspension.

    Oh wait! He plays for the Colts! Never mind. :rolleyes:

    So, you don't think it's dirty for a player to hit a guy, helmet to helmet, in the back of his helmet?

    To me, that is the definition of dirty. Hitting a guy from behind.. Amato was extremely lucky not to have been severely injured
