I suppose it's important to acknowledge the question that's on everyone's mind, and no - I did not post the wrong video. That perfectly-timed, helmet-to-chest hit that separated the ball from a receiver that was only defenseless because he was looking down during the process of a catch that was still up for grabs is what got Jabrill Peppers docked over $24,000. I would say I'm surprised that the league deemed it was worthy of a fine considering the only thing that made it worthy of a flag was the assumption that no clean hit could possibly send an offensive player sailing six feet out of bounds. Unfortunately, the NFL has given me reason to believe that they have better things to do than to actually watch the plays they demand monetary compensation for. So, with that said, further penalizing what shouldn't have been a penalty in the first place makes perfect sense.
Now, on to something that is somehow more hilarious than the NFL's ruling, which is the hypothetical way in which the Commissioner's office will react to Jabrill Pepper's response...
First of all, I'd be pretty surprised if Roger Goodell sees that tweet and doesn't initially think that it's actually a video that Jabrill Peppers shot of himself. Yes, I know that he announced his name on stage at the NFL Draft less than eight months ago. In fairness, however, that caption says "me" and that's far more telling than any semblance of a visual recollection that the Commissioner might have of the high profile players contributing to the endless stream of money entering his bank account. In fact, I hope he doesn't find out that the person being used to make a joke at his expense is Big Sean, because that would be considered "lying" which is only permissible if you work for the NFL in a capacity that doesn't require you to wear pads.
Second of all, there's no way someone who lacks all forms of logic and human understanding knows what emotion that GIF is trying to portray. In that sense, it's actually the perfect act of social media mockery. A rolling of the eyes would have gotten detected by Roger Goodell's half-human registry of facial expressions, but a empty stare into the camera? That's juuuuust subtle enough not to get a professional athlete re-fined for responding sarcastically to a ridiculously bogus fine....I think.
