    Slap on the wrist... Meanwhile our QB misses a start.

    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:


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

    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.

    BEST MAP EVAARRR!!!!!!!!!!!

    That really, really struck me as funny.

    For what its worth, I hope that Florence's goldfish dies. Or maybe someone pours sugar in his gas tank.

    I'd say you did a capital job. On behalf of fans who pull for crappy teams everywhere, thank you.

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

    linky

    Roger Goodell says, yawn, Texans who?

    perhaps if the Texans called it a concussion instead of a 'widdle bobo', Roger may have considered it a bigger hit than just being 'dinged' up.

    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.
