If these types of plays ensure a penalty and a fine you are going to see the further pussification of the NFL because OL will just be taught to take there opposition to the ground because that player us basically taken out of the play and if that player keeps playing he's going to get penalized. Also defensive players will quit playing once they get knocked down to avoid letters from Goodell
Partially I agree. About quitting and making the game more gentille.

But the pendulum will swing back some when the owners see that like in this case he was taken out of the play by defacto holding. The pressure from them will cause the refs to throw the flag at the real culprit. And then the defender gets flagged for REAL hits only.
