I did see the play just didn't see it as that bad. Defenders often try and nail a quarterback as he is sliding. Happened to Cam on a number of occasions. I can see why they feel a need to protect themselves. I don't like Brady at all but I don't see the big deal.
Swing and a miss.... must not have watched the play.
Brady slid feet first and Reed was pulling up. Brady raised his leg after he went down and his leg kept going higher even after he stopped sliding while Reed was trying to avoid him.
And for the record, Ndamaukong Suh was fined $30k for the kick on Matt Schaub.
Suh was fined because of stomping the other player earlier in the year and has a bad reputation. Anyone else doing what he did with Schaub wouldn't have been a fine. He really didn't try and hurt Schaub.
If these constant fines for looking at someone the wrong way keep up, lets play flag football instead of tackle football. Did Reed miss any plays?? Was he really hurt? Then what is the big deal???
