Wake Up, Goodell; Fine Terence Newman

November 30th, 2014

Do the right thing, Roger.

This fantastic Mike Evans video is making the rounds nationally tonight. It should make Bucs fans proud.

Young Evans is caught blocking like a monster downfield for Charles Sims. But the CBS video also reveals two disgusting cheap shots Evans had to endure.

Twice, cornerback Terence Newman launched his helmet into the face of Evans. Twice! There is absolutely no intent there other than to injure. Watch the video and look at Newman’s feet.

That’s not football. It’s assault.

Joe sure hopes Roger Goodell and his team of people allegedly interested in protecting players takes a hard look at this video — which NFL.com is promoting. Go figure.

Newman deserves a six-figure fine. Maybe even a suspension. This is way worse than throwing a punch.

One thing of note in the video, after Sims is tackled for a first down, Bucs safety Dashon “Hawk” Goldson bolts onto the field to offer some words for a Bengals defender. Yes, Hawk is a little nuts — in a good way. But it was evidence of more undisciplined activity by the Bucs. You can’t do that, Hawk.

    Asking Roger Goddell to do the right thing is like asking one of our Qb’s to stop playing like crap – You can hope for it, but it’s probably not going to happen.

  2. Rrsrq Says:

    That won’t happen…He should look into the Bucs tanking though

  3. Luther Says:

    Micheal Clayton would be very proud of that.

    You’re kidding, right?

    a six-figure fine!!!?!!! C’mon man…that’s freakin ridiculous….that was 2 NFL players goin all out to show who was the dominant “lion”, and it was obvious Evans was the “bad ass”….let it go….no need for fine or suspension or lawsuit or ANYTHING

  7. buccanAy Says:

    haven’t we had enough of Goodell tearing apart what was once the best game in the world? We don’t need Goodell fining or suspending anymore players for playin their A$$ off on the field.

  8. Patrick in VA Says:

    Maybe if someone called in to derrick brooks’ show this week and brought it up then he might look in to it. Since that’s what he does now for the nfl

  9. Keith Says:

    @buccanAy – What Newman’s doing there is pure dirty play. Twisted, really.

  10. snook Says:

    Good one. Now if it was the Bucs, you’d definite see a fine.

  11. buc4life1979 Says:

    YES, he CAN do that Joe, just like Logan Mankins was about to Hacksaw Jim Duggan that Bengals D lineman from behind for running into and pushing Mccown to the ground on that defensive offsides..Neither Buc was penalized for their actions, and their RE-actions were those of Leaders. You could see it in the Bengals players actions, they came into Tampa thinking the Bucs were a garbage team and that they already had the game in the bag just for showing up…DAM PROUD of my Bucs team today even though they lost because FINALLY, the 2 has returned to Tampa…the way this defense is finally starting to click AND it did that today again without David and this week Mcdonald….This time next year, they should be a top 10 unit if not 5. GO BUCS!!

    Crying to Goodell is a great second place if we dont get the win.

    Sounds like Lovieball

  13. jo_mama Says:

    I had to comment twice.

    It reminds me of children in the school yard threatening to sue each other over a fight in the yard.

    Bush league Cry baby BS.

    Let’s worry about foot ball and wins.

    while attending the game I was surprised at how many seats in the stadium were empty. there were plenty of places to park. the pregame scalpers were out selling their buc tickets at huge discounts. yes there were many people selling their tickets. I guess people are showing the glazers what they think of the leadership(lack of) that is in place.

  15. Yungry Says:

    What about the Bengals’ d-lineman who cheap shotted McClown?

  16. biggun Says:

    Goodell reminds me of a mob boss… “what’s in it for me” right now he’s got to lay low cause of the ray rice situation and soon the Peterson situation. A job’s boss should not supercede the court of law…. if they go to jail well that’s pretty clear there ass aint going to be on the field…

  17. Fort Myers Dave Says:

    If Goldson did that to another promising rookie; say Kelvin Benjamin of the Vikes or the Saints first rounder who is out and I guarantee he would have been flagged on the spot and likely suspended for at least a game with a hefty fine…. Bucs really do not get any respect from the refs; being as undisciplined as they are has to play a big part in it but this really goes back to the previous regimes; Chuckie never got a decent call from the zebras; even the challenges he threw were often refused although the evidence seemed “conclusive” and Schiano raised the ire of the refs and the NFL by ruffling a lot of feathers with his unconventional approach. Having his D try to blast a sacred icon like Eli Manning in a major market cash cow for the NFL on a kneeldown probably had some repercussions besides everyone grumbling in the media, heck Goodell probably almost stroked out when he saw that! I think all of this reflects on how the team is treated by the zebras and the NFL in general when it comes to fines and suspensions, hence the Bucs tend to get the short end of the stick a lot, ala Al Davis’ Raiders when the old coot was still calling the shots out west….

    Just lose baby!

  19. Fort Myers Dave Says:

    ugh Benjamin for the Panthers not the Vikes… Bet he shows up vs the Bucs when our Bucs travel to Charlotte though and I bet a Buc defender would get flagged and fined if he roughed up Kelvin with one hit of only half the intensity of the numerous muggings Evans got..

  20. Pelbuc Says:

    Port Richey George, maybe the Bucs fans are trying to send a message or better yet, maybe apathy has set in which is worse than anger. The only way to get the Glazers to make radical changes to not go to the games. They would probably threaten to move the team but at this point, do we really care? All the fans want is a competent team with decent coaching but apparently that is too much to ask.

  21. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    Port Richey George…I lived your story last season. Drove from Port Richey myself for every home game.

    I could be wrong , but I don’t remember the stadium being that empty last season as compared to this season from what I could tell on TV.

    I’m not surprised though…actually today’s attendance looked pretty bad from the TV viewer’s perspective. It looked really bad out there today for ticket sales for the Glazers today.

    Time to draft a QB!

  22. DallasBuc Says:

    Never enough of the same Goodell pic…prod version?

  23. Zam Says:

    If we’re out of the playoffs anyway, then good for Hawk.

    I couldn’t believe they took a cheap shot on McCown and none of our linemen threw a punch. All they did was a little sissy push.

    You do that to Tom Brady and he himself would get right up and in your face.

    Where’s our dog? No wonder we’re consistently losing.

  24. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    That Ohio state players suicide is crazy. The only thing I read is concussions on that story. Not a thing to take lightly my friends. Anybody who has had them and many of them knows what I mean. For no particular reason depression sets in. His statement that he was an “embarrassment” to his family is sad. Prayers to him and his family.

  25. JT Says:

    Guess what everyone. Its the tampa bay bucs so no one, not the refs not the leauge not the media gives a dam about us. They would rather pretend we dont exist.

  26. Brandon Says:

    I’ve combed the clip trying to find anything Newman did that should result in a six-figure fine… or any fine whatsoever. He did nothing wrong other than leave his feet and get slammed down to the ground. But when blocking or taking on blocks, there are no rules about leading with your head against an opponent that is facing you…NONE.
