ESPN is reporting that the NFL is going to fine Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for his bullshit hits on Eddie Lacy and James Starks during Sunday’s game with the Green Bay Packers.
Meriweather led with his helmet on both plays. The first knocked Lacy out with a concussion and, ironically, the second knocked Meriweather out with a concussion.
Unfortunately, this turd won’t be getting suspended and you have to wonder why.
This isn’t the first time he’s been fined for being a cheap fuck. Meriweather was fined $50,000 while he was with New England in 2010 for hits on defenseless receivers. In 2011, he was fined $20,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit and $25,000 for unnecessary roughness, while with the Bears.
Obviously, this fool doesn’t get it.
Meanwhile, the league did suspend Tampa Bay safety Dashon Goldson a game for repeat violations of NFL safety rules. Doesn’t Meriweather fall into that category too?
