Necessary Roughness?

So Jacksonville Jaguars defensive players Mike Peterson and John Henderson were fined some cash for their excessive roughness penalties last week against the Colts. Which of course they are probably pissed about. I mean who likes somebody taking money out of your wallet. Peterson's feeling is that the Colts get preferential treatment, which may or may not be true. I'm not in the mood to research whether other defensive players have been fined the same amount (or at all) for these types of penalties. What I found hilarious and ridiculous was Peterson's comments about it. Said Peterson, "It was like, 'Indianapolis comes to town, now all the fines come out.' I hate all these fines and how they're changing the league around." "You can't even play the game the way you want to play it now."

--and the way he wants to play the game apparently is to cheapshot guys after they're down and twist their legs in an attempt to injure them. Nice. --I actually think Peterson is a great linebacker. A bit demented as that quote suggests but who doesn't like a little splash of crazy in their middle linebacker? ---Probably the Colts
