    Default Haloti Ngata to appeal $15,000 fine for hit on Roethlisberger

    Haloti Ngata to appeal $15,000 fine for hit on Roethlisberger
    The National Football Post

    OWINGS MILLS, Md.óBaltimore Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata plans to appeal his $15,000 fine for breaking the nose of Pittsburgh Steelers star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

    "We haven't filed it yet, but we will," Ngata said.

    Ngata caught Roethlisberger with a hand to the face during the Steelers' 13-10 win Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium and wasn't penalized. It appeared to be inadvertent, but he was punished by the league office for "striking a defenseless quarterback in the face."

    "I just swam over the guard and he ducked down as I was coming out to tackle him," Ngata said. "I think it's kind of crazy, all this fining that they're doing. But they're going to just try to enforce the rules on us, I guess. They're fining guys like crazy."

    Hard to appeal hitting the QB in the head when you broke his nose. Good luck with that one, Haloti

    McClain, Ngata to appeal fines
    ProFootballWeekly.com

    Ravens DT Haloti Ngata and LB Jameel McClain said Thursday that they will appeal fines handed to them by the NFL for their hits in Sunday night's loss to the Steelers.

    McClain was fined $40,000 for his hit on Steelers TE Heath Miller that gave Miller a concussion. Ngata was docked $15,000 for striking Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in the face. Roethlisberger broke his nose on the play.

    "Of course, I think it's not right," Ngata told The Baltimore Sun. "I feel like there was no other way I could have played that play because I'm swimming the guard, he starts to duck, and my arm is coming down over the guard. But I'm going to appeal it and see if hopefully, I can get some money back."

    The way we see it

    In a season when the NFL is cracking down on hits, neither player is expected to win his appeal. The league came down quickly on the two, just one day after the game. McClain's hit looked more violent while Ngata's appeared to be a bit of a fluke, so the defensive tackle may have a better chance in the appeals process.

    If Halitosis Ngata gets the fine repealed, then we know the fix is in. That simple. Actually, we could say that about either one.

    Believe it or not, I think this is all good for the cause we all know is the right one. Other players and other teams inability to understand what Goodell is trying to implement, particularly in a game against us, it really corroborating our position from the very beginning.

    If the NFLPA is smart they will appeal every single fine, having to do with this issue, the rest of the year.

    By all means appeal it. As you say, more grist for the mill. I'm just going to be intrigued to see the results of any appeals.

    I hear what Ngata is saying but accidental or not it doesn't matter, he still hit him in the nose which is against the rules and should be fined.

    snip

    Goodell further explained that he considered fining Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for striking Ravens’ lineman Haloti Ngata’s hand with his face. However, Ngata’s hand was not injured on the play, so Goodell refrained from issuing a fine.

    snip


    Wonder if he'll use this as his defense for having the fine repealed. (sarcasm noted)

    Of course, he could try to fine/suspend Ben for having facial intercourse with Ngata's hand, which led to a nose getting ****ed...

    The fallout from winning a game is getting oddly frustrating.

    Funny how refs seem to miss plays that should be flagged when it comes to the Stillers.

    I thought the refs were supposed to err on the side of caution and throw the flags on anything close? I guess this doesn't apply unless we are doing the hitting.

    What a complete mess Goodell has started. Anybody know where the fines go after they are collected? Does it go to the league, is their a fund, what's the deal?

    LVG I have heard everything from the retired players fund to NFL charities. Not sure if either of those are true or just rumors.

    I heard that it goes into Goodell's vaginal reconstruction surgery.
