Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is renewing his call to let NFL players help decide fines for flagrant hits.
The Pittsburgh Steelers can't seem to do it the easy way, can't seem to stay out of trouble.
Sorry, Troy Polamalu. Commissioner Roger Goodell says active NFL players won't be deciding punishment for flagrant hits that merit fines.
The NFL knows drama, on and off the field.
Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins could face additional discipline from the NFL after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams.
Steelers linebacker James Harrison's hard hits on the field keep getting matched by the NFL's hits to his paycheck.
Imagine a scenario in which NFL officials - investigating an aggressive and illegal hit - decided to suspend all play by all teams for the entire season pending a full investigation into the adequacy of safety equipment. Now consider how those circumstances would play out if Commissioner Roger Goodell were President Obama, the league were America's oil and gas sectors and the canceled season were the offshore drilling ban.
The NFL is demanding that Steelers linebacker James Harrison and others stop using their helmets as weapons.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says "workplace conduct" is the main focus in the investigation into allegations of improper behavior against Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.
