Brandon Meriweather fined 42k by NFL for illegal hit on Lacy
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Team from Washington Safety Brandon Meriweather has been fined $42,000 by the league for his illegal helmet-helmet hits in Sunday's game. The first hit of his knocked out Packers RB Eddie Lacy, while the second one on Packers backup RB James Starks ended up knocking himself out. It's safe to say that this guy completely deserves this fine. You can't break that rule once without getting in trouble, yet he stupidly did it twice. On the bright side, Lacy seems fine, so I guess I don't hate him, but he did deserve some kind of punishment.
