    So punching someone only results in a 7500 dollar fine, it seems to me like by making it such a low figure that even the NFL admits it wasn't a punch but they just wanted to save face to the whining jagoffs.

    You just get fined for a punch, but no charge for beating the crap out of somebody.

    Anyone have a link to the video of this? Brown says that he just got up and was pushed into Sessions. Sessions made no move afterwards indicating he was punched. Would like to see it myself.

    But yeah, if he hits him again in Jax, I'll chip in $50 too.

    One of the news stations had a camera on the whole thing and it had the perfect angle. It was on the news night before last I think...wish I remembered which broadcast. Didn't look like a punch to me.

    In the first fram you can see a Jag's hands and arms on Browns shoulder. During the course of the game all linemen shove other players off their teammates, so I believe the he was shoved side of the story

    I think he is pulling his arm away from the guy behind him and its a quick sudden jerk, but very OBVIOUSLY there was no impact on Sessions since there is ZERO reaction on Sessions part. If you notice, once Browns hand quickly moves forward at a speed that looks like a punch no doubt but if you look closely he places it on Sessions stomach for an instant to gain his balance and stand up and PUSH the guy who was behind Brown, who was trying to push him when he was on Sessions. Brown was obviously trying to get to the guy behind him who was pushing on him, not hit the guy under him. Here is a good video of the event. Watch Sessions immediately after the "punch". Sessions has zero reaction and turns away from Brown...not the behavior of a guy who just took a cheap shot to the gut.
