Should Golden Tate Be Suspended for Hit on Dallas Cowboys’ Sean Lee? [POLL]
It’s all over the Internet and sports talk shows today — should Seattle Seahawks receiver Golden Tate be suspended after the hit he made on Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee in Sunday’s game?
Tate completely laid out Lee (who was uninjured, thankfully) on a block for a teammate. There are rules against a type of hit like this. In 2009 the penalties for blockers were instituted. They state:
Any contact with the helmet or neck of an opponent made during a blind-side block, whether by helmet, forearm or shoulder, would result in a 15-yard personal foul penalty.
But it’s really hard to tell if Tate hit Lee in the chest or the neck/helmet. Take a look at the screen shot above. What do you think?
