Seriously?  And Clowney got nothing for knocking Wentz's head off?

Because they didn’t call a penalty.  God forbid they admit they were wrong.

What a complete piece of ***** the NFL is turning itself into. Get Rodger Goodell out of there. 

You are exactly right on point.  None of this would be going on without the approval of Goodell.  He continues to demonstrate that he has created a completely incompetent organization to run the league.  I'm not sure what the owners see that leads them to keep this fool in his position.  As another post indicated, fantasy football and gambling is propping up the interest in the league.  Playoff games with unsold seats, unsold TV advertising slots, and widespread fan dissatisfaction with the stadium game day experience should be enough for the owners to put some heat on Roger's sorry a**.  Cody Ford should file a grievance and fight this ridiculous fine.

He and a couple others in this thread expose their true colors with TERRIBLE takes on the topic.

 

 

Soooo, do you mean to say that the Jets special teamer who wrecked Hauschka got a fair shake, in light of Ford's treatment by the NFL?

I hate crying about the refs and thinking there is some silly conspiracy against the Bills but that was an awful call.  
 

Football is the greatest sport in the world and the nfl is run by morons.

This is so awful by the league, it's almost worth a Bills Mafia 'Go Fund Me' page to cover it.

That's what this is all about.....reinforcing the ref's calls, right or wrong.

I can't remember, did Ford criticize the officiating afterwards? I could those rats throwing a fine at him for that and saying it was for the "hit". 

 

Either way totally inconsistent fine. It was basically a normal block. People have skated on WAAAAY worse hits. NFL officiating is a freakin joke.

I swear the NFL is trying to test people’s patience and daring people to stop watching

 

I support this theory. If you think about it, it's the same for politics now. They are testing the servitude of the people and how bad they can get away with everything.

My point is that you rarely see this called in close games, particularly in overtime of the playoffs. You can make this call 10-15 times a game. I literally found 5 just perusing through the plays. The following is during Houston's go ahead TD drive in the 4th Qtr. Take a look around the 15 second mark of this clip when Houston's fullback lights up Milano on the exact same kind of play (and, just for good measure, watch the Houston WR (87) at the bottom of the screen after the hit on Milano - and the OL (66) holding at the top of the screen during the run - but I digress).

 

 

As I said, I can easily pull 5 of these clips right now. Again, my point is they are rarely called in these kinds of games.

This. 100x this.

 

These are blocks that happen ALL THE TIME during NFL games. They're unavoidable. To call Ford's block a 15 yard penalty which basically lost the game for the Bills and then assessing a fine on top is simply the league justifying a horrific, game-altering, officiating blunder, nothing more.

Agreed. Using refs as an excuse is just that.....but that was a garbage call and the NFL then makes it worse. 
 

Ford should make a big deal out of it for no other reason than to shed light on this embarrassing fine.

What absolute crap. It never should have been a penalty in the first place. Just the NFL pathetic attempt to justify the past year of  the worst officiating in the leagues history. 

 

I still have not gone back and watched the game again (still too fresh), but based upon my original viewing I’d have thought an apology from the league would be more appropriate than a fine. Not that I expected an apology, but that’s how much I hated that call.....

Hey NFL: for consistency's sake maybe call this one too

Well they have no consistency. That’s the problem. But are you taking about the Texans guy who got showed by a Bills player?

I have to say the NFL is out of control with the protecting the refs  Its ok to just come out and say they got a call wrong   That was a marginal call at best  and to fine the guy seems like wagging the dog to me

I love the practice of appealing to the place that fines you in the first place.  The NFL is so insane.

Failing at that as well....

Yeah no. He disengages with Poyer (you can see his arm let go deliberately) to start moving back towards Edmunds (he turns his head and lines him up) and initiates a textbook illegal blindside block with his shoulder and head.

Did you say "Go Fund Me" page? 

 

Up to 98 donors and $1,428. Cody says he will donate it to charity.

Is that boogers ignorant commentary?

This is the first time I've re-watched this video and it just brought me right back to full pissed off mode.  Rule or not - at the end of a game that is an absolute NO CALL.   I couldn't bring myself to watch any games last Sunday and now I definitely can't this weekend either.

I think you’re reaching.  But the Ford call was still awful.

For my faith in humanity that can't be the reason for the fine.

Thanks for reminding me of how much I dislike Booger. 

 

This is FOOTBALL! If he wanted to just get a hit on him he could have lit him UP!  The guy is still chasing the play and Ford just screened him off! What if the ball comes loose (as it does far too often)? Is he not allowed to recover because Josh had already passed him? Sorry, we’re still playing football there! The fine is worse than the call, because they had time to consider it.

What yard line would we have been at if the penalty wasn't called?   I was so mad at the call I don't even remember what happened on that play.  And haven't let myself watch any highlights of the game - will just put me in a very pissy mood, lol
