    Not surprising. You can say what you want to about the rule, but if a player keep making the same penalty over and over it will lead to increasing amounts in fines, and eventually a game or two sitting out.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I thought Fergy got Horse Collared last night.
    Will be interesting to see if that comes out this week as a fineable tackle.

    Cowboys safety Roy Williams got no support from teammate Terrell Owens following the NFL's decision to suspend Williams after his third horse-collar tackle of the season last week.....

    "Roy has his way of tackling people, and it's unfortunate the way he tackles because it's very, very dangerous, and I think he needs to do something to kind of correct that," Owens said.
    I have to agree with T.O. on that.

    It seems if Roy doesn't care & continues to do it. This is at least his 6th offense for hose collaring in two seasons & he has already injured at least 3 players.

    IMO, a one game suspension is not enough for this repeat offender.

    Not defending the man, but old habits die hard.
    It's a tackle he's done since early high school from what they say, when you've done that for so long it becomes instinct.
    In full game speed a lot of times it's those instincts that take over and without actively thinking about it Roy grabs for the collar and pulls them down.

    The real question will be, can Roy Williams figure out a way to make himself stop using that tackle.
    If he doesn't it's just going to get worse and worse for him.
