I agree, there was no intent on that hit, both guys crouched down at impact. The Adrian Clayborn hit with his shoulder first and Drew's head made contact after. The fact that it was really fast and that Drew was blindsided made it look worse.

Why can't we win an appeal?

Because double standards. If its the Saints, suspend, take away draft picks, then fine them. Any other team, oh just shake your finger at them and tell them to just not do that anymore.

Smith and Vilma's punishments were vacated last year after an appeal. Of course that has nothing to do with Goodell. Tagliabue had to clean up that mess.

Re: Goldson wins appeal, but is hit with $100K fine

What y'all need to step back and realize is that the overturning of the suspension hits Tampa Bay harder. If Goldson's suspension would have been upheld the team would have retained the $562,500 salary that Goldson would have lost. That money stays in the team's pocket. This way the team gets hit harder. In addition to the $100,000 fine the league levied on Goldson it added an addition $50,000 fine on the team itself.

Re: Goldson wins appeal, but is hit with $100K fine

Matt Birk Not Goodell lifted the suspension on appeal. Matt Birk is an NFL appeals officer and ex player.
Dashon Goldson Wins Appeal: Matt Birk Overturns Suspension

Matt Birk Minnesota Vikings (1998-2008) Ravens (2009-2012) From Minnesota.

Same Matt Birk that insinuated the 49ers were behind the SB Black Out
Matt Birk Insinuates 49ers Were Behind Super Bowl Blackout Baltimore Sports Report

^ This is what the NFL hires as an appeals officer? WTF? I am sure the Saints Vikings rivalry had nothing to do with his decision.

These fines are pathetic. There 1000's would be my 100 bucks (or less)

I hope he hits one the precious Pats late this week. Goodell can then answer why Goldson was allowed on the field.
Keep letting the repeat offenders go, Rog. Your credibility is already sky-high

Right fines are nothing to these guys, game suspensions would be more effective along with the fines.
