Martin fined $5k for hit on Boss


Panthers safety Sherrod Martin has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for his hit on Kevin Boss that resulted in a concussion for the Giants tight end.

Boss was attempting to catch an overthrown pass when he was hit in the back of the helmet by Martin. The hit was a violation of the NFL’s new rule policy to protect defenseless receivers. Head coach Tom Coughlin was upset that the league did not enforce the rules during the game.

Boss is out for Sunday’s game with his second concussion since Thanksgiving last year.

    Further proof that the referee’s on the field need to get on the same page as the league. I feel the ref should be fined as well, they’re consistently bad making calls on both sides of the ball and it needs to stop.
