    Ray Edwards: Fine “Ridiculous”; “Men don’t wear panties”

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/11/24/ray-edwards-fine-ridiculous-men-dont-wear-panties/

    Minnesota Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards was fined $25,000 for a pair of illegal hits in last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he’s not happy about it.

    ...

    “No offense to women, but men don’t wear panties,” Edwards said today. “We chose to play this game. We don’t cry when we get cracked unexpectedly. That fine is what it is. Just got to go out there and play ball and have fun.”

    Troy got fined... so i'd expect him to get fined too. They really need to stop babying the quarterbacks... its rediculous. They are profesional football players, as long as they are the field they should be fair game just like any other player

    LOL

    Idk what Ray is thinking.. I mean I do agree the fines are getting out of hand.. But did he not realize there was quite a few seconds after Garcia threw the ball and when he hit him

    Come on Ray you are smarter then that.. It wasn't how hard you hit.. Just how late

    it was a late in terms of it came after the ball was gone... but both players were running full speed... its a bit tough for them to avoid a huge collision... technically Garcia should be fined too... I didn't see him pulling up lol

    Then again for him to be fined for his hit while the guy who laid kluwe out on that punt return get highlighted on ESPN says a lot about how evenly the leagues concern for players health is spread. What a crock of shit.

    IMO if they don't want to expose such a great investment to possible injury they should quit paying the QB so much money. Hell, if they made what the average fullback makes they would let any hit go.

    I always found that funny too

    On ESPN they praise hits with WRs coming across the middle and getting leveled

    Or a special teamer running after a returner and getting flattened as soon as they turn around

    Or Hines Ward embedding his helmet into a defender.
