    $15,750 for this hit on Bills QB Thad Lewis last Sunday.

    Fines are just extensions of flags on defensive players

    I refuse to watch (give ratings to) the new NFL. Its been a lot easier since Tampa sucks so bad. I would give up College too because they are going down the same pussification route but I can't even think of not watching Florida football...

    What I'm so confused about when it comes to professional sports is the dichotomy between the differing ones. Football, for instance, is taking very radical steps to tone down the contact and violence in the game. Despite wearing helmets, new rules are being instituted to try and protect players even further. However, mixed martial arts is the fastest growing sport in the world and it's main goal is to knock your opponent unconscious with violent blows to the head. Both sports are completely voluntary for the participants. While head injuries are said to be the downfall of one, head injuries are the objective of the other.

    This!!!!! Every hit in the NFL now is a "targeting" hit. They are now pushing it down the ranks to college, and it's almost unbearable to watch, but like he said I can not even fathom not watching the Gators play.

    As a Dolphin fan, I'd like to say he should hit him a little harder.
    That was a game that the Phins shoulda woulda coulda won and moved into a virtual tie with the Pats heading into Foxboro on Sunday.

    If I was an NFL player I would simply do this. Play good enough to get a decent contract, at the end of that 5,6,7 year contract when I have made almost all my money I would start leveling people left and right. Then when I quit, and when the NFL asked for my money I would tell them screw you I don't work for you.

    I mean it wouldn't work, but it would be worth a shot.

    So much drama..... 52 targeting calls have been made this year in college. 1 every 9.2 games. Already less than last years 1 every 8 games. That is 7 calls for every 67 games played. at 35 plays per team (70 per game) that would 1 targeting penalty every 644 plays. That is a lot of tackling and hitting that are not penalties. The game is not ruined.

    I stopped watching football since the targeting rules came into being. I just have no interest now if I can't see anyone get seriously hurt.



















































    Does anyone else realize how stupid this is?

    You picked a good time to stop watching football. There's a lot of anger out there.

    I have been hunting around trying to find how many NFL targeting calls there have been and can't find a number.

    This site: http://www.nflpenalties.com/penalty/personal-foul?year=2013

    It seems they do not have a specific category for targeting. I am guessing it falls under "personal foul" because Merriweather of the Redskins is listed twice under this heading.

    there have been 39 Personal foul calls in 7 weeks There was an average of 1.22 Personal Foul penalties per team league wide

    there have been 26 roughing the passer (which sometimes is helmet to helmet) There was an average of 0.78 Roughing the Passer penalties per team league wide.

    Not drama. My personal "opinion", if you understand that term, is that football will be ruined, you will see a decrease in attendance due to this, and the sport will slowly decline. Sorry the Bucs got hit with 3 in 2 games that were horrible calls. They get paid millions. If you can not or do not want to take a hit, get off the field.

    I wonder if teams will simply begin to abandon defense alltogether and just draft offense?

    you may be right but most will be temporary as the love of the game will bring them back.


    The sport will also slowly decline as more information and science comes out about concussions.

    There has already been a decline in participation at the pop warner level
