What a crock? That hit (he lead with his back) set the tone for the game. Matty Ice Melt ran only once more after that play the rest of the game. Hopefully some veterans or Rob Ryan picks up the tab. Why oh why is Goodell still around

Questionable. Even the commentators said it was a late slide by Ryan.

Flag is probably deserved, but the fine is aguable at least.

Re: Kenny Vaccaro fined $8k for Matt Ryan hit

Curious - Goodell justified the BountyGate Beatdown to protect the Shield and the Players who are part of it...

So it is consistent that Vaccaro would receive a fine for a debatable late hit despite live commentary to the contrary...

Perhaps the League Office just wants to establish a penalty history to dampen the young Vaccaro's enthusiasm?!?

So why then is there inconsistency when declining to make an examination of the blocking techniques of the Falcons a priority?!?

There is a definite correlation in defensive linemen injuries and playing the Falcons...

Re: Kenny Vaccaro fined $8k for Matt Ryan hit

If he had looked apologetic, he may have gotten away with only a flag. It's hard-hitting, high-intensity football between bitter rivals, but we must show a measure of class at the end of a hit like that.

I feared for Drew after that crack on Ryan.

It sure served a purpose and was worth more than the fine with respect to Ryan's apprehension.

Was Abraham ever fined for the late hits and sitting on Bree's knees post-play?

I think its the level of the hit correlated with a % of the players salary that determines the amount fined.

Actually, I think it is tied to the salary of the player in a manner of speaking.

Re: Kenny Vaccaro fined $8k for Matt Ryan hit

I'm seeing a total lack of consistency in these fines and wonder how much Vaccaro's fine has to do with the fact he plays for the Saints ... honestly.

Clay Matthews (GB) talks all week about hitting the QB in the read option, then horsecollars Kaepernick (SF) to the ground after he's out-of-bounds. Any fine yet? At least Vaccaro's actions can't be considered premeditated.

Why, is Matthews (GB) described as "an aggressive player who plays with passion" when he does something like this and other players get fined?

I'm sorry, football is a gladiator-sport played by men & you're gonna' have some physical contact. If you're gonna' fine one, fine 'em all ... and then go out and get 'em some flags to hang from their belts, ... this is gettin' out of hand, and I'm not talking about the late hits, those have been around forever.

... this space intentionally left blank ...
