NFL announced today it is banning hook slides. Also, modifying the infield fair catch rule.

I read some time ago that injuries are more frequent in soccer, a non contact sport, than in football. I think it's fine to have rules that lessen the chance of concussions and spinal injuries. But the fact of the matter is that players have evolved so that we now have 240-pound linebackers who run sub 4.4 forties and hit like a freight train, entirely legally. There will be injuries, some severe, as long as the game is played.

I would love to see the tape of the plays that won these pools. Also would like to see how it effected the careers of the "victims".

I think Harrison IS a dirty player. Let me clarify. Going for the head shot is dirty, hitting a player with a shoulder pad to the midsection as hard as you can is good technique.

The bounty system I have heard about on the radio etc involved players making a "pool", each throwing in some cash and paying it out to guys who make big hits. As with anything, some take it to extremes and the Saints did that then spent years trying to deny it and cover it up.

Dirty play with the intent to injure should be punished and I think Goodell has been consistent with that and I agree with him. Hard hitting football is something I really enjoy and wish the Browns understood the principal. lol

When we talked about this before Nic you called him a dirty player. Now, he's doing his job.

If this practice is so common, how come the Saints just got busted for it?

"return his fines..."

Disagree. He knew better.

At least not that you know of. The steelers are a class organization but this type of thing is pretty common if you believe the retired players. As with most things, I believe the hype is worse than the act here. If a player was told to go after someone's knee, that is one thing but to tell a player to hit someone hard enough to knock them out of the game? Isn't that what a defensive player gets paid to do every week?

After this bounty scandle with the NFL, I think all James Harrison's fines should be returned to him.

He wasn't paid to be a hitman...
