Apparently, the National Football League (NFL), a playground where hard hits are relatively common occurrences, has fined head coach Pete Carroll and team for a combined total of $300,000 for violating no-contact rules. Yup, Seahawks were penalized for being too rough in practice. According to league spokesman Greg Aiello, “…the violation was for permitting the club’s players to engage in excessive levels of on-field physical contact during the team’s 2014 mandatory mini-camp for veteran players.” In 2012, the Seahawks had been fined an undisclosed amount by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for similar violations. In recent years, unsettling reports about concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI) among current and former players have been a serious issue in football; especially in the NFL. In all fairness it is about accountability and the NFL has an obligation to warrant the safety and health of their players.
