“I really don’t care about it, but just the fact that if was a play where I was trying to do it, I’d take the fine, but I won’t take it,” Finley said on Friday via ESPNWisconsin.com. “It was first quarter. It was a good (hit), too.”
It looks like the block was a little too high for the NFL’s liking. As we all know they’re trying to protect the head and take it out of the game.
