    Where is the Polo FINE NFL? Buehler?...

    Wes Welker Misses Patriots' Practice Due to Neck Injury - New England Patriots - NESN.com

    ok, we're all about protecting the players.

    Now picture perfect QB tackles are fined because you didn't tilt your head back further than the shoulder pads allow you to go &

    DBs can't lay the wood on wrs after they catch the ball

    SO HOW ABOUT THE DB WHO TRIES TO DECAPITATE A WR????

    oh, what no fine for that. It was a Patriots WR. and he is the leading wr in the league so he needs to be taken down a peg anyway.

    well, I am still going to ask for the fine. I just wish BB would give the press some entertainment value and play the video in a PC and then tell the press corps: ' We just sent this video to the commish with a request for him to look into it.'

    That would be hilarious to see the hypocrisy in how ESPN and NFL cover down on both Polo & the refs and hammer BB.

    It has been 4 days and I still have not heard anyone explain why that is not a penalty.

    Same reason why Polamalu batting the ball into the EZ wasn't a penalty...the officials are inept.

    I don't know about a fine, but I wish we had a safety like Polamalu who can HIT AND TACKLE all over the field.

    Sounds right to me! That had to be one of the worst called games I can remember.

    Watching the game with my dad (who is a huge Steelers homer) and his explanation was:

    "Polamalu didn't grab the face-mask or horsecollar. Welker was just to pathetic to break the tackle."

    Needless to say that game was painful to watch.

    it shouldve been called as unessecary roughness. he legit slammed welker to the ground.

    its starting to become abit like the NBA with the "star treatment" for penalties...Revis is allowed to hold, polomalu can drag a player to the ground and its ok...

    Say what? Replay clearly shows Polamalu's hand grasping Welker's facemask..

    IC I don't think it's soft I think it's coaching don't be dumb and get the penalty because 99.9 percent of the time that's a penalty if that was Ihedigbo there would be a fine for him about 40 percent of his yearly income when he opened his mail.

    I'm starting to think that Roger Goddell is Nucky Thompson
    Rex Ryan is Tony Soprano
    Mike Tomlin is Bumpy Johnson
    Hell we have the Colts throwing the season in front of everyones eyes when the Dolphins really are trying and should get Luck but won't because Polian is the Devil.
    In all this madness BB is like Elliot Ness

    Rule 12, Section 2, Article 5 of the NFL Rule Book (page 81) states that “no player shall twist, turn, or pull the face mask of an opponent in any direction.”

    I wonder what your father would think of this pic, Polamalu clearly had his arm on the facemask and most definitely twisted.

    Sorry if this has been dealt with,didnt see any other posts regarding it.When I see Welker missed Wed.'s practice re a neck injury,I recall the hit Polamalu administered to Welker where he came in at at angle and jumped on his back,cradled Welker's head in one arm and twisted it.The replay was painful to watch.I realize this was not against the rules(to my limited knowledge) but it looked like the kind of thing that could cripple a player.Have to wonder why this type of tackle is not illegal,like clotheslining,using the facemask...Thoughts?

    I actually held my breath for a bit on that play, very concerned that Wes was going to have a serious neck injury.
