This is true. But how many of those blocks have a viral video making it so easy to identify the penalty? Sure, these types of blocks occur all of the time. Nelson's block was so brutal that it was replayed over and over again, making it easy to identify the penalty.

 

That should not be the basis on which penalties/fines are levied.

Of course not.

 

But it explains why he was fined, when other O-lineman have not, for doing the same thing. 

 

That's what they need to change then, either go over the film and fine all those hits or don't fine them at all.  They should not be picking plays that go viral to fine.

Yeah the REFS didn't even call a Penalty on the Nelson hit. Yet he gets fined because his hit goes Viral, yeah that makes sense :scorebad:

It's inconsistent, @PeterBowman mentioned the Sony Michel hit.  That too was a text book example of lowering the helmet, but because it didn't go viral no fine.  That is a really bad way to dole out fines.

Let's post 'the scream' to all 'lowering the head' videos, and eventually they'll become white noise.

Then other O.Lineman need to start getting fined then because it happens every game in all games where at times they lead with their helmet. This is a dumb fine, sorry. I have never seen an O.Lineman get fined for this and technically the league could do it too many other O.Lineman is my point. To me this has nothing to do with being a Colts fan, had this been a Pats O.Lineman I would be saying the same thing. Pick out any game this week and if you go over every play you will find this happens quite a bit by O.Lineman. 

So, in your opinion, if EVERYONE who commits a crime is not convicted of committing a crime, then no one should be convicted of a crime?  I know that is an extreme, but that is applying your thoughts to another situation.

If it means no more Judge Judy/Mathis/Joe Brown/Divorce Court, etc... then yes.

Interesting side note.  So Judge Brown is from the Kansas City area and he is a partner in one of the largest ambulance chasing law firms in both Kansas and Missouri.  So I get to see his commercials all the time... yay me.

"Injured in a car wreck?"

 

"Call me, the Hammer!"

 

"It's just that easy!"

 

"Tell the insurance company, you mean BUSINESS!"

You know, now that I think about it, maybe Barry Church should call one of these lawyers.  He did get run over by a big-rig while visiting Indy last week...

I had a feeling someone would Post something like this. Problem with this is, REFS never call O.Lineman for this type of penalty during a game on anyone period. Only reason why Nelson is getting fined is, his video went Viral and the league looked at the video. That is a wrong way to punish someone.

 

-Your example is very extreme considering we are talking crime and football. Obviously if someone gets away with a crime but is caught on camera then he/she should be punished. With Nelson the REFS never call that on O.Lineman in live play. I have never seen an O.Lineman get a lowering/leading the helmet Penalty and it happens quite a bit actually.

I'm still waiting for the Sony Michele fine for his lowering of the helmet hit on Geathers

Finally someone said it. So we can now call it Pancakegate. Church is playing this weekend. Geathers didn't play for awhile and almost career ending. Maybe we should spam NFL corporate for a response to that?

I wonder if that play wasn't edited and circulated all over the internet, does Nelson still receive a fine, i bet the NFL doesn't even take a second look ..

So an intern decided to edit a play to sensationalize it, it goes viral which brings it to the NFL's attention and Quenton gets fined. If the team isn't secretly reimbursing Quenton  then they are cads. I am not going to donate to a go fund me for Q-dog......he will soon be a millionaire and I am shlep'n for a living.....but I feel for him.

 

Hottest seat in the Colts organization should be under that intern's butt

Even before the scream edit was released by the Colts the NFL had a clip of the block posted on their Facebook page.  Captioned with something along the lines of "this is how a guard is picked for offensive rookie of the month".  So they were well aware of the play anyway.

Cheesey... Keep lining the NFLs pocket with cash

 

He was out in the open going 2nd level and lowered the helmet to initiate contact.  As expressed early, that is the poster of the rule.

If we watched every game closely last week I bet we can find at least 1 O.Lineman lead with their helmet on a play in each game actually. I have never heard of an O.Lineman getting fined for this. It's a joke, end of story.

He definitely lowered his helmet.  That said, when you start fining offensive linemen in the name of player safety, when they literally smack helmets every play, that's bush league.  I would think the Colts could cover this fine since their doctored footage of the play pulled so much attention towards it.

 

They were going to call it from getting out of the stance! 

 

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2777387-nfl-linemen-who-lower-helmet-to-make-contact-out-of-stance-will-be-penalized

 

They have toned down the lowering helmet calls from pre-season levels, but it is still in the forefront to reduce/eliminate those plays from the game.  Even with the down linemen.

no.. he lowered his helmet

 

"It is a foul if a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent. Contact does not have to be to an opponent’s head or neck area – lowering the head and initiating contact to an opponent’s torso, hips, and lower body, is also a foul. This rule applies anywhere on the field at any time."

The NFL would have caught it anyway, here's a detailed look at ALL that goes on in NY during games, and it is not just challenge judgements, it's all play review in multi-angles-

 

https://bit.ly/2ze3WFX

 

The takeaway-  

"One of the key aspects of the play-review process is that when a penalty is called on the field, it doesn't always lead to a fine from the league offices. But when a penalty is not called, a player still might pay. Hanks' verdicts from Week 6 are prime examples of this. Suh was fined $31,500 for his hit on Weeden, which wasn't flagged."

They are different only in global impact but both are based on rules and the breaking of those rules.  Also don't chance the question being asked.  The question was not if someone commits a crime and is caught on camera should that be punished, the point was you stating that if they fine Nelson then they need to go back and review the film of all lineman and fine them every time they have done that.  If they don't then they should not fine Nelson.  So my point was, if someone gets away with a crime, does that mean no criminals should be punished?

    • The real mystery is why Ballard felt compelled to sign him to such a huge contract. He’s getting paid like a top 10 RB. Either that’s too much green or Reich isn’t using him right — both can’t be true. 
    • Blankenship.     That was nice of you to try to stack the deck against Blank by NOT mentioning that his inferior stats are due to being hurt.  (I know another poster who tries to do that!)   Badgley has been very good.  I’ve been happy with him.   And if we go with him over Blank, I’ll be fine.    But if given a choice I know who I prefer. 
    • There's only one ball. We have a ton of weapons on offense. Hines will get his but no way it's going to be as much as some would like barring injury from the other guys. 
    • I admit to being a big Badgley fan when when had him, but of course, he wasn't going to replace Adam.   But he's been very inconsistent over his short career. Look at his stats over 40 yards. There's a reason he was available.   Blankenship easily as of now.   
    • Adding guys we've let go since there's been some buzz...   Autry - 60.7 - 5 sacks (tied for 14th in the NFL, and top 20 in pressures), and more than anyone on our roster. TN fans are raving about him. Houston - 69.7 - 3 sacks, as much as anyone on our DL, in a limited time share role with Oweh. Walker - 69.0 - higher grade and much better passer rating allowed than Oke. AW has only one missed T, while Oke has 7 Chester Rogers - 57.3 - grade isn't great, but better than Pascal and Dulin... Similar production to Pascal. Only 1 drop vs Pascal's 3 Hooker - 54.4 - not a great grade, but our Ss aren't grading great either. Looks to be playing more SS than FS based on the snap counts I've seen, and low DADOT.
