Overturning of Bush fine doesn’t mean penalty call was wrong

The news that the appeal process resulted in the scuttling of the $21,000 fine imposed on Saints safety Rafael Bush for his postseason hit on Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin has prompted some Saints fans to assume (reasonably) no penalty should have been called on the play.

Saints Made Big Mistake with Rafael Bush ☆

Rafael Bush is not yet lost, but he has signed an offer sheet with the Atlanta Falcons.
