After Texans called him dirty, NFL fines David Stewart $7,875

After Sunday’s Titans-Texans game, several Houston players complained that Tennessee guard David Stewart was playing dirty. Looking over the tape, the league office found one play on which it agreed.

The NFL has confirmed that Stewart was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness for a play on which he unnecessarily struck a Texans player in the head area.

The Texans think that’s a slap on the wrist for what Stewart did. Two different Houston players said Stewart threw multiple punches during the game, and the Texans also accused Stewart of pulling linebacker Brooks Reed’s hair. Texans safety Danieal Manning told the Houston Chronicle that Stewart “should have been fined four times. Justice was not done.”

But as justice in the NFL goes, $7,875 is the standard fine for unnecessary roughness, and that’s all the NFL saw.

    I’m a fan of the long hair movement in the NFL, but on the flip side, you can’t have hair that long and complain when people tug on it occasionally.

    Boy, i really dont know much about these texans other than they are an up and coming franchise and they play in the worst division in football BUT is it just me or are they becoming a bunch of whiney, complaining, entitled punks?

    That’s rich. The Texas calling someone dirty? This is the team whose zone blocking scheme relies on cutting defensive lineman and backside pursuit. Now that’s dirty.

    A lousy 7k? That isn’t a “dirty” fine. Unkempt perhaps, or neglectful of personal hygiene, but not dirty.

    Nah,teams just don’t like getting their butts handed to them by us.So this is what they resort to once the game is decided.That’s when the dirty pay begins…Once the game has been put away.

    Really? You’re just now saying he’s dirty? This is the same guy who jumped on Shawne Merrimans knee, tearing it to shreds forcing him out for effectively 2 years, nearly forcing him to retirement and causing hos play to never be the same. And NOW you’re calling him dirty? He’s been dirty for years

    If you go back and watch in the 3rd quarter in that game you can see him throwing full on haymakers. I was at the game and came home and reaffirmed what i thought i saw
