Re: NFL fines Pete Carroll, Seahawks

Cheaters, led by Pete the Cheat. Anyone really surprised?

And where is karma at with this team? There should be a string of at least a decade where they win 8 games total.

That is all...

Re: NFL fines Pete Carroll, Seahawks

I hate the Hawks just as much as the rest of you but this is king of ridiculous. The players got in a fight and since it was OTAs the team was fined for contact.

That's one way to interpret it and certainly how the Seahawks fans see it....

Difficult to imagine how a fight breaks out in no contact walk throughs. Perhaps Sherman was mugging a receiver at the line of scrimmage that was trying to make the team?

I would interpret it this way.

1. The no contact rule in the CBA was put there by the players, not the league. Live by the sword....

2. The Seahawks are repeat offenders, they are being fined because this isn't the first offense.

3. Sherman got in a fight with a receiver but it was due to the excessive contact before the fight. How does a fight break out in no contact drills? Combine Sherman, PEDs, and excessive contact.

4. There is video of the excessive contact leading up to the fight I hear.

Watch the video.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving bunch.

Seattle certainly has a different definition of "no contact" anyway.

But Petey had no knowledge of it, and would have stopped it had he known, and if the situation gets worse, he won't quit.
Oh wait, that was at USC

Preach it...King Roger the Impotent did everything he could to ensure the Saints did not play in the Super Bowl in the Superdome...there were legitimate reasons to believe we win home field throughout the playoffs in 2012 to include the Super Bowl.

Instead, we have the rise of Pete the Cheat and his adderall-infested secondary...good job, NFL.

King Roger the Impotent has got to go...
