    Didnt think so the league hates the Titans it seems with those refs and the non fine on a vicious dirty helmet to helmet hit vs 42k on a borderline shoulder hit.

    How can he get fined but the Wright hit doesn't. The NFL FO needs to be confronted on all of this. They're ruining the game. Goodell needs to be out on his ass.

    Thats the cost of doing business for Pollard I guess.

    He laid the wood on Andre Johnson a few times, all good clean hits.

    I like Pollards style, he just hits you, doesn't think, just goes and bangs. Thats good cause a lot of guys a forced to hold back in fear of hitting the wrong area of a guy. F that, make the tackle and put some fear in those receivers heart.

    Sounds like someone needs to hit Goodell for ruining the game.

    I just saw a GIF of the tackle, it really looks like when he landed his head whip-lashed and hit the ground had - that is what might have caused the injury, not even the hit. (GIF link - http://www.musiccitymiracles.com/20...lard-fined-42k-for-legal-hit-on-andre-johnson)

    I know Pollard has a rep and I'm sure he's a repeat offender, but the guy that hit Kendall, now that was a DIRTY hit if you ask me, was he fined?

    On a side note, I love Pollards comment on twitter...

    It doesnt have to be "helmet to helmet" to get a fine, the rule is targeting the head or neck of a defenseless receiver. Pollard led with his shoulder, but directly hit the head of AJ while he was in the process of the catch (defenseless).

    Kareem Jackson will probably be fined as well for his hit on Wright, but Pollard's was probably reviewed first because it was on a name player and caused a significant injury.

    It was not a "good hit" as far as the rules go. Fans love the big hits, but when a defenseless receiver gets his head targeted, there will be a fine.

    I have to watch it again but it seemed also that mcourty was in front of Johnson and that was the only way for pollard to make the play and he avoided helmet to helmet. Goodel is a greedy bloodsucker as far as I'm concerned.

    One step closer to player strike.

    Only a matter of time.
