Rolle, three others fined in Cardinals-Giants game

Arizona Cardinals safety Antrel Rolle was fined $7,500 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss late in Sunday night’s Giants-Cardinals game.

Although Rolle wasn’t flagged, he was fined for “unnecessarily striking a defenseless receiver.” Boss made a great play and didn’t drop the ball despite the brutal hit from Rolle. Surprisingly, Boss did not suffer a concussion and is not on this week’s injury report.

Other players fined after the hard-hitting Giants-Cardinals game include Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, Giants safety Michael Johnson and Cardinals tackle Levi Brown.

Bradshaw was fined $5,000 for hitting Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett in the facemask, a hit that drew a flag for personal foul and a tweet from Dockett comparing Bradshaw to Glass Joe.

Johnson was fined $5,000 for hitting Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner in the head. Brown was fined $5,000 for a chop block.

    When does the football start? Once Roger Goodell is out? I hate watching this pussy game without big hits. this is garbage. These players are paid to play football and take the bumps and bruises that go along with it. now if its clearly a dirty hit, I have no problem with a fine, like the Dante Wesley hit. But for god sakes please just let them play. This isn’t flag football. You can clearly see in the picture in the link that Rolle hit him with his shoulder. Seems fair to me

    “Boss made a great play and didn’t drop the ball…”
    This indicates Rolle didn’t hit him hard enough.

    The late hit on Warner drew a fine (but no flag)… and the bogus “late hit” on Eli drew a flag (but no fine).
    HaHaHa!!!
    Just goes to show how one-sided the officiating was in that game. The ref’s definitely did everything they could to hand that game to the Giants.
    With even-handed officiating, the Cardinals whip them by 3 touchdowns. The Giants simply aren’t in the same class as the Cardinals. Not offensively… Not defensively… Not special teams. What I saw was complete domination in all phases of the game.
    Stick a fork in the Giants. This year, the NFC championship is going to come down to Arizona (again) or New Orleans.

    Funny you say that HardHat, Cuz I do recall the Giants getting a little Special Treatment from the Refs…But Nothing like the Cowboys get…..Dem Boys were hitting Helmet to Helmet and the Refs were looking the other way. Holding?? What Holding? Cowboys dont Hold…Yeah Right! I think the Eagles have it the worst…Damn refs call everything on them…and nothing agains the other teams they play…Watch the Eagles get like 6 or 7 pens this sunday to the Giants 1 or 2.

    Yeah, real dominating for the Cardinals. That’s why the Giants outgained Arizona 327-288 for the game.
