The NFL is full of shit.

(facebookers go to the blog or you cant see the videos)

No fine, no penalty (as of 12/6/10 3:04 pm)
UPDATE: 12/7/10 Ngata fined $15,000.00

No fine, no penalty (as of 12/6/10 3:05 pm)
UPDATE: 12/7/10 McClain fined $40,000.00

In other news James Harrison forgot to say "God Bless You" when Roger Godell sneezed this morning and was fined $17,000.43. Just because.

Taken from

The ever-confusing NFL has fined Jameel McClain $40,000 for his concussion-inducing hit on Heath Miller and has also fined Haloti Ngata $15,000 for his nose-breaking hit on Ben Roethlisberger (which has now been fixed, by the way).

How about the refs, who blew both calls? Any fines or discipline for them, NFL? They're really doing a stellar job of enforcing the rules this season, if I do say so. They're so eager to penalize James Harrison, they have the flag cocked and ready as soon as he's in the play. But a defenseless receiver, the piece de resistance of illegal hits? It gets a blind eye from the officials. I don't usually wear tin-foil hats, but it sure makes you wonder.

The Tomlin press conference is coming up this afternoon, and aside from hearing how great the Bengals are, it should be an interesting one from an injury point of view. I do know that Miller must pass a series of concussion tests before being allowed to play again, but that was a rather violent hit that might be best served with a week of rest. We shall see.
