February 4, 2012 // 0 Comments

The NFL imposed huge fines on three players — Pittsburgh’s James Harrison, Atlanta’s Dunta Robinson and New England’s Brandon Meriweather — for illegal hits last weekend, although none of those plays drew penalties on the field. It warned that, starting with this week’s games, violent conduct will be cause for suspension
