What would you guys recommend? No fine for Lynch at all? He did lead with his helmet with isn't legal. Nothing wrong with a hard hit, just keep it clean.

Lynch launched himself at Dallas Clark helmet first and hit Clark right under the chin strap. I'm pretty sure Lynch even said he hit Clark the way he did to send a message to the Colts, and now the Broncos dbs r talking trash about the colts receivers who torched them for 40+points last year.

All this talk about football being a violent sport and fines like this causing a player not to play at full speed and hit people in similar ways as if the fines are a bad thing? Players have to stop leading with the helmet, because it's becoming far more common instead of using the shoulder or heaven forbid their arms. These fines not only are to discourage the use of spearing and launching for the safety of the receivers but also the defensive players as well. If there isn't a change in the way defensive players, someone is going to die sooner than later during a football game.

The NFL has gotta do what it's gotta do, I guess. But, I think that this is a violent sport and as such, a shroud of contact rules should not be forced upon it to give it a softer appearance. Just let them play football, in the violent way it was intended.

I understand from time to time you'll have a hit that's not to intentionally hurt someone. Your helmet will hit first if they cut because that's just how you hit.

Lynch was trying to hurt that guy, fine him. Why do we lean towards caution now? Maybe it's because players that used to fly around and play like that are dying at age 43. Maybe that's why.

Why have you developed a habit of asking questions and then answering it with the next sentence? I just don't know.

Lynch wasn't trying to hurt the guy, that's just plain rediculous. He was playing football the way he's been taught and coached all his life (all out).

It's a bit more than leaning towards caution at this point. It's not the hitting that puts these guys' bodies in such a sad state at early ages; a lot of the time its the time spent in the weight room that does this.

i agree with the fine and how the fine system is structured...however, people make such a big deal out of it...the guy was doing his job. the players realize that if they get out of hand, they will be fined...this is why it doesn't happen that often...

and those guys dying at 43 is a bit of a stretch...it's the hazard in participating in that job/sport.

the Darius hit was brutal, but not dirty. robert ferguson even said so himself, that it is part of the game...

Are you somehow trying to tie this hit to Reggie White's death?

Not Smootsmack - I just happened to use his age which for some reason popped into my head. Football players do die strangely early often times.

Cpayne: It's not like Lynch hit him in the shoulder pads and slid up. He put his helmet right to his from the begining, and it didn't look like he was aiming anywhere else. Especially for a guy with a history. It was a dirty hit and I bet he'll think before he goes helmet to helmet again. If he hit the guy and slid up, that's not his fault.

I didnt see the hit. But this game is played at full speed. Its not like the guy was standing there and lynch had his choice or where to hit him. Usually when you hit a guy in the head you are on the run and diving, or the guy goes over the middle and you are smacking right into him. Either way you dont have a lot of control. You can try to go low or something but these guys are trying to make plays. Its a contact sport, shit happens. Dirty hits happen after the play in my opinion, nothing is dirty during the play.

That is a great line.
