Yeah, but the way they come back & change them, it's like they don't wait for the wheel to stop spinning before they hand out the fines. Antonio Smith just had one reduced from week 1.

I understand there's a select few that deserve every fine that has come their way, but Harris was a first offender. Stupid!
I think it's obvious when this picture was leaked of Goodell working on fine amounts:

Man, I hate Roger Goodell more and more everyday. The guy is a complete and utter disgrace.

I want to punch Roger Goodell in the face. Can anyone set that up for me?

I dont agree with the amount but he deserved the fine.

He was early on a defenseless return man and helmet to helmet. It was an incredibly stupid play by Harris. My Texans' biased only goes so far.

He deserved a penalty. Not a fine.



Maybe it's just mr but I feel that fines should be reserved for blatant and maybe repeated disregard for the rules.

Not for playing hard and making mistakes.

It's clear thar the NFL is trying to soften the game up some. That's fine, but some of this stuff is overkill.

To carry on with the wussification of the league.

Garrett Graham suffered a brutal helmet to helmet hit in the game Sunday. There was no flag, no penalty, & there will be no fine.

We saw several legal but brutal hits in that game. Dobbins knocked the F out of that one guy. I use this as evidence that the league is not trying to change the game. It's still a brutal sport.

I hope Garrett gets well soon.

I think they should remove the punt returner as a defenseless receiver. He's not defenseless. He has the fair catch he can call. If he doesn't, then shame on him.

Slauson should've been fined a lot more if all of these fines are going to be more than his.

I'm pretty sure there have been uniform and celebration fines that hit way harder than the fines given for illegal hits that lead to injuries.
