For the second straight week Dashon Goldson was penalized for a helmet-to-helmet hit. And for the second straight week the Bucs Pro Bowl safety says he doesn't intend to change anything about the way he plays the game. Now the NFL may decide to keep Goldson from playing. The league is deciding whether to suspend Goldson for his hit on Saints running back Darren Sproles Sunday according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Goldson was fined $30000 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland last Sunday. Since 2010 Goldson has had 15 personal foul panalties more than any other player during that period. "We're not worried about those penalties man we're really not'' Goldson said. "That's football. You can't worry about penalties. We learn how to tackle when we're young. We've been doing this for a long time. The refs are going to make the call. You can't worry about something like that.'' The Bucs had three personal foul penalties Sunday including the ones against defensive end Adrian Clayborn on Saints quarterback Drew Brees and anoither on safety Ahmad Black who hit tight end Jimmy Graham with his helmet.
