Default Johnson and Jones fined for scrum

That is to say:

Johnson and Jones fined for scrum, not srum. srum is not a word.

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/6635467.html

Quote:
Texans receivers Andre Johnson and Jacoby Jones have been fined for their roles in the fight on the sideline during Sunday's 34-31 victory at Tennessee.

Johnson, who was going at it with cornerback Cortland Finnegan on the Texans' sideline, was fined $7,500 by the NFL. Jones, who joined in the fight and threw punches, was fined $5,000.

Receiver David Anderson, who was called for a personal foul, wasn't fined. Titans defensive tackle Jason Jones, who was ejected for throwing a punch, was fined $5,000 on Wednesday.

No other Texans were fined.

Andre Johnson should ask if he can donate that money to charity.

And worth every penny! If AJ and JJ needed it, hell, I'd even chip in on a fund to reimburse them. Even though times are lean, THAT was worth paying for.

Thank you AJ, JJ, MW, De Ryans and all the Texans who knocked the toothless wonder known as the Possum Squallor Hootinanies back to their hovels on Bumblescum Mountain crying both on and off the field!!!!

(Disclaimer before anyone poops their pants....I don't condone violence, we need sportsmanship, sprinkle in honesty and some other positive attributes where you feel necessary etc..etc..etc. I am glad no one got hurt and I do mean that seriously, but those punks in tinisea had it coming!)

Pretty sure that's against the rules of the CBA, all the income having to be reported, and all that.

So, DA gets called and AJ gets the fine.....

I could easily see how someone could mistake the two for each other.

At least no suspensions! I bet AJ would pay $7500 anytime to toss Finnegan around like a rag doll again.

I'm trying to remember if that was before or after he "fielded" the fair catch? Maybe we could have dodged that bullet either way!

I'm wondering where the video evidence is since CBS f-ed up on the broadcast.

Apparently there was a fight on the sideline, but we got to watch Keith Bulluck watching the fight.

The NFL network replay showed footage of the whole thing. From the angle it appeared there was a camera around the 50 on the opposite side of the field

Cool. They'll probably show it on NFLTA today then.

Well, it's not like Roger Goodell can ignore Jeff Fisher. My guess is Jeff Fisher had something to do with it. Good call on watching Keith Bulluck watching the fight. All I can say is thanks CBS for the .7 seconds of what was really happening. I said it earlier this week and I'll say it again: If anyone truly needs to be fined it's Jeff Fisher. You want to kill a rattlesnake you cut it off at the head, not the rattle. If I'm Bob McNair, I can't just hand them the money but I'd find a way for them to make an appearance during the week to cover what they owe.

First part is all I care about. There's no way we could've afforded to have AJ suspended especially considering the WR corps isn't at full strength.

Default Re: Johnson and Jones fined for scrum

The fines indicate to me that the league saw AJ as the instigator of the fight as he got a higher fine that anyone else. And, as the NFLN Replay angle showed, the fight did start when he dragged down Finnegan by the face mask. I thought it started because Slaton got flattened a second time after being tackled by Bulluck, but the later angle shows it started between AJ and Finnegan.

As fines go, this was pretty light (the Matt Schaub Fine Counter still sits at $90,000, for contrast). But I'm glad there were no suspensions.

Thanks who ever fixed the title of this thread. I ended up doing extensive research on the word "srum" turns out, as I expected, it's not a word. Found some stimulating acronyms though!
