I just read this article from PFT about how the NFL is considering fining Teams that have Multiple, Individual Player Safety Fines.
I'm not sure if they are talking about fining the team when 1 player incurs multiple fines. Or when Multiple players incur Individual fines. Or Both, but either way, I think it is Crap.
According to the Report, "Under the current propose guidelines, 4 teams would have received Significant Fines in 2010". Now, without looking up any info on who was the most fined teams last year.... I'm gonna guess that we could be up there.
The NFL's reasoning behind the Team Fines is to promote proper coaching and technique. Now I'm just assuming again, but I would wager that the Steelers were probably 1 of those four teams that could have been Fined in 2010. So by this logic, the NFL doesn't think Dick Lebeau Coaches Proper Technique? Give me a freaking break.
I get it, player safety is Important, at least while you are playing in the league. But the NFL is just after the $$$. Not only do they change the rules, for what constitutes a Defenseless player. But now if you can't play by the new rules (and we all know how clear rules are written in the NFL). We are gonna Fine you, Even if the Call is Wrong, We are still gonna UpHold that fine, And if you don't correct your behavior, or if you're friends (teammates) act up.... Were gonna Fine them too, And then We'll Fine the Team!!!
