Well at least something got done. Personally I with Chris...would have rather seen one of his teammates do something instead.

Wow, only 15K. Watch out Tom Brady. For a meager amount of cash guys can take a QB under the chin.

I'm surprised. That seems pretty low. I was thinking $50K.

Good point.... Keep running up those scores and leaving Brady in late in the 4th quarter...

Really. Florence can pass the hat around the locker room and collect that easily. Didn't Sapp once get fined $50K for bumping into a ref? Very weak. Why wouldn't the Colts and Pats turn this week's big game into the Bounty Bowl?

Way to send a message, Roger.

Probably automatic. Could go up another 100 if you cause them to miss a game.

By the way...its good to be here. I think there are exactly 3 Texans fans here in Tyler...and I work with the other two.

Brian Urlacher once got fined $100,000 for wearing the wrong branded hat at the Super Bowl.

Terrell Owens got fined $7500 for making fun of Spygate with a TD celebration.

This is what I wrote today about NOT watching the Colts-Patriots game in Houston:

I'm Not Bitter About Not Watching Colts Versus Patriots, Are You?

In part:

Quote:
I'm a Texan fan, so I am fine watching the Texans. I have no bitterness in missing the MGotKaUU.* In fact, watching that game might make me more bitter. Because it would be a matchup of two talented quarterbacks who neverever get injured and have crappy backups. And I would get to see them progress in yet another astonishing season. Oh joy.

In contrast, I will wonder what the penalty will be for San Diego cornerback Drayton Florence illegally blindsiding Texans quarterback Matt Schaub last week. It was the second week in a row of Schaub getting a helmet to helmet hit, and this one gave him a concussion and knocked him out of that game and likely the game against the Raiders.

I am guessing it will be about an equivalent fine to the $7500 that 49ers kicker Joe Nedney got fined for giving fans the finger. Probably not the same fine that would happen if Peyton Manning or Tom Brady got a similar cheapshot, but we will not likely never know because those quarterbacks neverever get injured.

See, that's some bitter for you.

*Mega Game of the Known and Unknown Universe. Turns out that the Raiders are blacked out so they will be watching the game.

Default Re: Florence fined $15,000

BTW, Vince Wilfork got a $12500 fine for taking out JP Losman's knees. Losman thought that fine was too low. Wilfork claimed it was unintentional.

Florence's offense was twofold:

1. Helmet shot to the head.
2. During a time of a play when the QB isn't supposed to be jacked up.

So, intentional shots to the head of a QB = $15,000.

GM Rick Smith is non-amused by size of fine:

linky

Quote:
Texans general manager Rick Smith criticized the NFL today for not being tougher on San Diego cornerback Drayton Florence, who was fined $15,000 for his hit on quarterback Matt Schaub.

Schaub suffered a concussion when drilled during an interception return by Florence, who was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness. Schaub will miss Sunday's game at Oakland. Florence was not suspended for San Diego's game against Minnesota.

"We are disappointed in the sense that we have lost out starting quarterback for at least one game after the player took the crown of his helmet and delivered an illegal blow to Matt’s jaw, and the fine levied is only a small fraction of the player’s weekly pay," Smith said in a statement. "Is that equitable? The punishment doesn’t appear to fit the crime when all factors are considered.”
Roger Goodell says, yawn, Texans who?

I amend my earlier statement:

I hope that Florence's goldfish dies or someone puts sugar in his gas tank.
I also hope that someone puts ex-lax in Goodell's brownies and that he shats his pants in public as a result.

And then he remembers and says..."Oh yeah, Houston. Thats our NFL piss boy. Maybe the fine was a little excessive. I'll have to send an apology to Drayton and let him know that we had to do it because we do still kinda consider them an NFL team. I sure will be glad when we get our NFL developmental league started so we can send the Oilers...um..er...Texans down there."

If I was Bob Sanders, I wouldn't mind a $15K fine to do the same to Tom Brady if, for some reason, the Patriots leave him in the game in the 4th quarter as the Pats blow out the Colts. I'm sure Dwight Freeney wouldn't mind chipping in to that fine.
