Dunta Robinson Injury: Robinson: "I Am Not A Dirty Player"

After the $50,000 fine for his hit on Eagles' wide receiver, DeSean Jackson, Dunta Robinson was not happy with the NFL's ruling and will appeal the fine.

From USA Today:

"I am disappointed by the NFL's ruling. I recognize the goal is to protect all players from the Pee Wee level on up. However, this was a bang-bang hit situation where I did not lead with my helmet, and therefore I will appeal. Although it was a violent hit, my hit did not violate the NFL's rules, and I was playing the game the way I always have. I am not a dirty player and have never been characterized as one."

Jason Kirk has been all over this story and the poll at USA Today agrees with his assertion that the hit was not a dirty play.
