Chiefs CB Jamell Fleming wonders if Danny Amendola should be punished for his hit

We have a little controversy after the Chiefs loss to the Patriots.

Danny Amendola's hit on Chiefs CB Jamell Fleming is being called dirty. There were many comparisons to Vontaze Burfict. You can take a Google search of "Danny Amendola hit" and see what most people are saying -- that Amendola should receive some sort of punishment for this. Amendola was flagged for the hit, which is a little touch to watch.

Amendola says he thinks it was a clean hit and will appeal any punishment. The refs on the field disagreed. What does Jamell Fleming think?

I think he's got a legit beef and this isn't all sour grapes. However, Amendola may not receive any punishment. You generally need to be a repeat offender for anything more than a fine. I don't know the specifics of the rule book like Mike Pereira but I did see the reaction of the players on the field and they determined right away it as an ugly hit. And I can't really blame Fleming for being upset -- it's his body on the line and his team lost.
