so expect Hicks to be fined

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If Brooks would have went as low as Hicks, it probably would not have been a flag unless, like Hicks (which escaped the refs), he made contact with the facemask/helmet ... but in Goodell's litigious NFL, they're both fines, ....

Hicks should just send in a blank check to the NFL now because even though there was no flag he will get a fine, almost once a week that happens to some player

Re: so expect Hicks to be fined

It should have been flagged. It was even more obvious than the hit on Bree's. We got some good calls last night.

This is where I'm at too. It was entirely different.

Still should have been a flag tho, according to the rules, and he'll be fined, as he should be, according to the rules.

For what it's worth, Hicks needs to be commended on his outstanding performance last night. The guy plays angry but within the rules. Face masks penalties will happen.

Re: so expect Hicks to be fined

Yes it should have been flagged but the difference between Hicks hit and Brooks was Hicks started high coming off of a block but finished with his hands low on skid britches chest when he turned Ryan towards the official. Brooks hit started collar bone high and finished with his hand under Drew's chin strap where the official could see it in plain sight. Again both hits deserved flags but Brooks was more obvious without instant replay.

Even Dawson and Haralson picked up .5 of a sack. I don't even remember seeing Haralson on the field any...

Re: so expect Hicks to be fined

He may get fined but everyone saying this hit was worse is just crazy. I admit there was some incidental contact to Ryan's helmet as nicks was trying to get a grasp on him but it was very temporary. It's not like grabbed the facemask and proceed to try to rip ryan's head off.

Once again. Penalty? Maybe. Vicious and dangerous as the brooks hit? No. The magnitude of those hits is completely different. I didn't see Ryan spit up any blood after he got hit.

Re: so expect Hicks to be fined

Just because something looks worse on film doesn't mean it is. If Bree's neck hadn't gone all rubber boy then that would not have even been called. I'm so tired of the pussification of today's qb. Hicks hit was just as illegal as Brooks. The Brees hit just looked worse on film.
