This situation has been eluded to in other areas of the forum but I felt like giving it its own focus.

 

Honestly I have never been more irate at a decision by the NFL. If only for the lack of consistency.

 

The Steelers have seen their fair share of fines this year. Some notables:


Lamarr Woodley, on a sack, clean shot, no flag, $10k.

"Fines" Ward, 2 times, Both were clean shots and no flags were thrown, $15k total

Nate Washinton, for basically pointing at the opposing bench with the ball, $7.5k

James the Beast Harrison, $20k for officiating comments

 

That all adds up to a nice crisp 52.5 thousand dollars.

 

But a fight during a nationally televised game where un-helmeted players threw punches, meh how about $30k total.

 

You have got to be crapping my pants. Our team has donated enough money to cure cancer and these guys decide to duke it out. No suspensions?

THESE GUYS GOT EJECTED FROM THE GAME!!!! And laughed about it no less. They treated it all as it was nothing. Penalties were assessed and these guys got kicked out, yet a mere $15k a piece is sufficient. How can this be.

 

Im rather pissed, and its kinda sad that the league is basically allowing you to get away with this. This type of stuff hurts the image and has an impact. Light was provoked but got carried away. I was in favor of a suspension for both.


But hey pittsburgh can get fined for just playing football
