Several readers have forwarded to us amazing video of Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis, a week after he delivered a last-minute win over the Bills, delivering a huge glob of snow into the stands at Qwest Field.

We think that Mr. Ellis will soon be hearing from the league about this one.

Wow, what nice sporting fans the Seahawks have.

Shouldn't get fined really, the provocation was worse.

the league shouldn't take any action against Ellis at all...they sure as hell weren't giving the players any protection as they walked off the field.

Looked to me like he gave them a thrill and the fan that he threw it at tried to save it, lol.

Nah, the way some people are these days, they'll probably try to sue Ellis. :gun:

epic lawls.

The way that guy was holding that giant piece of snow, after it was hurled to him by Ellis, tells me it's going to be on Ebay very soon.

Wasn't YELLOW snow was it? If not then what's the problem?

After all of the reports of the people who went to the Sunday night game a few years ago up in Seattle, their fanbase deserves lots of things thrown at them. Good for Ellis.

They fined him 10G's. How weak is that?

New York Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis was fined $10,000 by the NFL for throwing snow at fans following the team's loss at Seattle on Sunday.

If he threw it that's one thing, but he basically just dumped a load of snow on some obnoxious fans pelting the losing team with snowballs. He deserves a bonus.

No kidding! For those who weren't around in '05, research the responses to our trip to Seattle (and I am from Wa!) Get 'em Ellis, and mash Hamlin in Dallas too! (remember him and his mouth?)

Incredibly weak. Boo the NFL, yeah Ellis. That was funny, called-for, totally not over-the-top, AND no one got hurt. Pathetic showing by the NFL's front office.


To repeat nero- what happened?

I agree. Goodell has been a strange one to figure out. He wants to Mr. Tough Guy by strict rule enforcement, yet he continues to let Pacman back into the League after each suspension? WTF? I'm willing to bet he's going to allow Vick back in as well.

Eh, WTF ever!

Yeah, these are the same Seahawks fans that decided to post sick 9/11 jokes on a Seahawks messageboard as a way to smack talk Giants fans.

BTW, this is ridiculous. Good job Ellis.

I wonder if Ellis could file charges against the fan for battery??

More proof that the NFL is a league that allows 'snow' fun at all. (Sorry about that)

Welker Fined for Snow Angel (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3792441)

It seems we've seen the last of Wes Welker's snow angel-making exploits on NFL Sundays.
The kid in him got the best of Wes Welker, who was flagged on Sunday, then fined on Wednesday for making a touchdown-inspired snow angel.

The New England Patriots wide receiver has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for exactly that.

"It was a spur of the moment deal, and you can be sure that it won't happen again," Welker was quoted as saying on The Boston Globe's Web site.

Welker was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct Sunday for making a snow angel just beyond the end line after his touchdown in the first half of New England's 47-7 rout of the Arizona Cardinals

Thats an expensive bit of fun right there!

What a joke the league is. 10,000 grand for snow angels and a hunk of snow that the fans obviously enjoyed.

NFL takes this stuff to far, there is a difference between some of Chad Johnson's / TO's stuff vs these things
