    [size=13pt]Childress: Allen's hit doesn't deserve fine[/size]

    Defensive end Jared Allen won't find out until later this week whether he was fined by the NFL for his roughing-the-passer penalty on Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, but Vikings coach Brad Childress said Monday that he doesn't believe Allen's hit warranted a penalty....

    Linebacker Ben Leber also drilled Rodgers after he released the ball four plays later. Leber was not called for a penalty, but Childress agreed that the two hits looked similar.

    "As a matter of fact, Ben had a longer run at him," Childress said. "So if you juxtapose those two right next to each other you can say, 'Which one is more heinous?' I'm not the judge of that.
    Shame on you Ben, a long run-up like that and he still got up after - albeit gingerly ..... next time if he gets up after you're fired !
    ;D

    Allen was flagged for the helmet to helmet, which I am fine with.
    But that is an IN GAME PENALTY, not a fine after the fact.
    It is part of the freaking game.
