I'm sorry. I wasn't aware we weren't allowed to debate whether or not someone laid a dirty hit on one of our players. If you aren't going to make intelligent posts that add to the topic, get lost.Back on topic, the hit was deserving of a penalty in my opinion. He didn't have to launch himself at Welker, but he did. Is it deserving of a fine? Probably not. Just give him a "warning" and move on. Let's just hope Welker is fine.

Maybe you need to rewatch it and listen to when the whistle is blown.

It was certainly a penalty but not dirty. sometimes you take into account the player involved.
Welker is one hell of a player, hope he is ok.

It looked liked he launched hinself a little bit to me, which I think is not legal, or should Welker been paying better attenion to his surroundings. I wonder if one of the Patriots had done that what the reaction might be today. Welker got up and walked off the field so thats good. Just wondering what you think.

I tend t lean that direction with the Welker hit. Could have had a Stingley outcome.I like to look at trends in all things as the best barometer of intent. If film shows a pattern like this with any player or team then it's dirty to me. If it is isolated, then I give any player a pass. And that goes for our players too.
