Bernard Pollard Blasts NFL on Twitter for $42,000 Fine
During the Titans-Texans game on Sunday, Bernard Pollard whacked Andre Johnson in a hit that resulted in a concussion for the Texans star WR. There was no flag on the play for one of the most vicious hitters in the NFL so I assume he thought it was legal. He was wrong because the infamous FedEx envelope was waiting on him:
So @nfl said I did "everything right" but 42k later I still get fined. Wow! It's called football but they want 2 hand touch. #TitanUp#

I can understand his frustration. Look the NFL needs to decide if they want to continue fining players for things not called on the field. It’s a little excessive to me that he got this fine.
Something tells me he will be hearing from the league office again for this tweet.
