Default Houston Texans safety Bernard Pollard fined $40,000

Quote:
NEW YORK (AP) Houston Texans safety Bernard Pollard was fined $40,000 by the NFL on Friday for unnecessary roughness against Justin Gage of the Tennessee Titans.

Pollard was fined for striking Gage in the head area Sunday when the Titans receiver was defenseless. The amount of the fine was so hefty because Pollard is a repeat offender; he was fined $5,000 earlier this season for a hit against Kansas City.

On Monday, the league fined Texans receiver Andre Johnson and Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan $25,000 apiece for their fight.

Arizona Cardinals tackle Jeremy Bridges was fined $20,000 for unnecessary roughness, his fifth such infraction since 2009. He hit 49ers LB Takeo Spikes after Spikes' interception.

Teammate Clark Haggans, a linebacker, was docked $10,000 for unnecessary roughness on a third-quarter running play for striking an opponent in the head and neck area with his helmet.

Packers linebacker Matt Wilhelm was fined $5,000 for a major facemask against kickoff returner Eric Weems of Atlanta. That penalty helped set up the winning field goal for the Falcons on Sunday.

Baltimore offensive tackle Michael Oher was fined $5,000 for violating the league's social media policy by tweeting during the team's win over Tampa Bay. He posted an update on his Twitter account about his sprained right knee.

Wonder if there are any after-the-fact Eagles fines coming up.

This just in

NEW YORK (AP) The Houston Texans were fined by the National Football League for allowing the same defensive staff and players to continue embarrass themselves, the team, and their fans. Word is, a grass roots campaign has been started by the other teams in the AFC south to collect donations in order to pay this and future fines.

So how much will the Eagles receiver who blasted Pollard when he was in a defenseless position (attempting the INT) be fined?

My guess would be $5,000 (assuming this is Celek's first offense,) but since it's Pollard who was in a defenseless position they'll find a way to ignore it.

Maybe they should use the fine money to help out the older retired players - especially the ones that used to spear folks. There's some sweet irony there.

They should set aside a bank account for each team and put the fines of each team into that account. At the end of the season, if the teams does not make the playoffs, the NFL should return it to the team with the expressed purpose of dividing that money among the season ticket holders.
