I don't think it was dirty, but it was illegal, according to the rules. So yes, he'll be fined.

Re: so expect Hicks to be fined

Hicks should have been penalized. I just don't think the ref was looking right at it unlike the 49ers game.

If all things are equal, he should be fined too.

My gripe with the 49ers is they play dirty then turn to the refs after every play and beg for a flag. I hate that, but as you can tell it's not working so much this season.

I don't think Brooks should have been fined and i don't think hicks should be fined either. Both plays should have drawn a flag thou.

I don't think either one should be fine...niether were intentional or malicious.

Just two guys playing hard...and, yes, I do believe that should have been a penalty on Hicks.

He still removed his hands from his helmet after they made contact. Brooks did not. He threw Brees down to the ground by his head.

Still, both should be flagged. It wasn't far more flagrant though, as Eisen claimed.

Re: so expect Hicks to be fined

Yes. He will get a fine. It should have been a flag but lucky for us, there wasn't one thrown.

The thing that made me mad was that the goons calling the game were like, "OH MY GOD! THAT WAS AS BAD AS THE HIT BROOKS PUT ON BREES! I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE ISN"T A FLAG!

SHUT UP! The point has been made on every sports talk radio and TV show in the entire free world. That was last week and nothing can or will be done about it.

It wasn't even close to being the same clothesline tackle Brooks made.

Oh I know. It just ruffled my feathers when they said that and kept on harping about a flag not being thrown.
