For the first time, I went click by click back over the play at Bengals.com and can only come to one conclusion. The NFL did not want the blood on its hands for the dirty play. Fining Kimo would have essentially told the nation that one of the brightest stars in the game had been taken out by an aging, mediocre defensive lineman. Eric Steinbach tapped Kimo like you would a player who you want to be down by contact because it was too late for him to do anything. But watching that replay, click by click, there was no shove, there was no "off balance 300 pound lineman," the only thing it was not is a late hit. Like FCB, I will concede that point. But there was an aimed shoulder dive at a QBs knees, with what intent I do not know, but it is inexcusable. If that makes me "irrational," so be it.
