    The NFL ruled on Tuesday that Joe Looney's hit on Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams was legal and that the San Francisco backup lineman won't be punished.

    I'm so fed up with the league's stupid decisions week after week.

    Jared Allen blasts NFL decision on Looney hit

    A hit like that has no place in football. The knee is totally exposed.

    Not surprised on the ruling, don't like it, but it is still being taught because it is not considered illegal. The coaches teaching it are just as bad as the NFL allowing it.

    It would be difficult to fine a legal hit. The players would riot.

    That stated, it was a dirty hit away from the play in a preseason game. The 49ers, Broncos, and Redskins all cut block a lot. It is part of their coaching.

    If the league's competition committee finds enough evidence this season that hits to the knees are "becoming a problem," it could take action
    So the NFL calls the hit on Williams legal, but if more & more players take those legal hits, the NFL might make them illegal?

    So where will a player be legal to be tackled. The ankles? If they make intentional hits to the knees from the front illegal, which they should do, the head is out of the question, Where will defenders tackle a player. A CB that was interviewed on Mike & Mike said he doesn't like to hit them in the chest. The ball carrier tends to brace himself for the hit & in doing so lowers his helmet. If he hits him in the chest, even if he doesn't lead with the helmet & their helmets touch, he will get fined. So he avoids that.

    "Becoming a problem"? They aren't becoming a problem, they have always been a huge problem. Ask any player if they'd rather be hit in the head or in the knee.
