    OK, fine. Where's the penalty for the guy who smacked Schaub in the head?

    I am surprised the NFL didn't make Wilson apologize to poor Dallas for not giving him the opportunity to take a knee or fall down before trucking him. But whatever, the Colts will be on the receiving end of bad calls tomorrow against Belicheat and the New Cheatland Cheatriots, who btw are cheaters.

    I didn't realize Clark ever got hit, I only saw him catch the ball and go straight to the ground like a wuss. :kingkong:

    Yup, I thought it was a bullcrap call and this is a bullcrap fine. Luckily he can afford it. I don't care about the limitations on TD dances so much but this kind of thing is what makes the NFL the No Fun League IMO. That was a good defensive play that shouldn't have been flagged or fined. OD has taken 50 hits worse than that.

    I hate to beat a dead horse, but where is the fine for the horrible officiating of the game. Each of those bozos should have been fined 5 g's each for thier incompetence!!!:deadhorse

    I guess the $5k fine is on the low end of the spectrum. I hate the unprotected receiver call. That makes no sense to me because how else are you supposed to dislodge the ball from a receiver trying to catch it? In a few years the NFL is going to become a flag football league...
