'Not nice' hit

Little girls are made of sugar and spice, and everything nice.  Now Roger Goodell believes that football players should be too, apparently.  In the above video it is clear that wide receiver Golden Tate is blocking a linebacker who is intent on doing harm to his QB, Russell Wilson.

Note too that Tate isn't on the linebacker's 'blind side', he's right in front of him, and that it is the linebacker who provides the  momentum.  Tate is more or less just standing in his path before delivering the block that is part of his job description (what he was undoubtedly taught in Pop Warner League).

We'd love to hear from Condoleeza (Italian for sweetly) Rice on this one.
