New Orleans, La. - On Wednesday,
Saints quarterback Drew Brees learned that Bucs safety Dashon Goldson is no
longer suspended after winning his appeal of a punishment for a
helmet-to-helmet hit on the Saints' Darren Sproles in last Sunday's game.
Goldson's one-game suspension now has been reduced to a $100,000 fine.
normally measured Brees gave a strong reaction.
certainly has no regard for the rules in the middle," Brees said. "He's going after guys'
heads. You can see it," Brees said. "Obviously, $100,000 is a pretty
hefty fine. He's had a lot of those."
Goldson has actually tallied 15 personal fouls, the most in the league.
"I got no sympathy for that,"
Brees said. "Obviously, I care for our guys and I don't want to see that
happen to our guys. And I know the rules. It's tough for guys playing the
safety position. In the middle, things happen fast. But then again, there's
some instances where it's pretty obvious that a guy was going after another
guy's head. And that happened on at least two occasions in our game."
insult to injury, Goldson winked at the cameras Sunday after he was penalized
for his hit on Sproles, which accounted for Goldson's second penalty for
unnecessary roughness in the first two weeks of the this season. Goldson was
fined $30,000 last week for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck
area in the Buccaneers' Week 1 game against the New York Jets.
