    Wow, what nice sporting fans the Seahawks have.

    Shouldn't get fined really, the provocation was worse.

    the league shouldn't take any action against Ellis at all...they sure as hell weren't giving the players any protection as they walked off the field.

    Looked to me like he gave them a thrill and the fan that he threw it at tried to save it, lol.

    Nah, the way some people are these days, they'll probably try to sue Ellis. :gun:

    epic lawls.

    The way that guy was holding that giant piece of snow, after it was hurled to him by Ellis, tells me it's going to be on Ebay very soon.

    After all of the reports of the people who went to the Sunday night game a few years ago up in Seattle, their fanbase deserves lots of things thrown at them. Good for Ellis.

    If he threw it that's one thing, but he basically just dumped a load of snow on some obnoxious fans pelting the losing team with snowballs. He deserves a bonus.

    No kidding! For those who weren't around in '05, research the responses to our trip to Seattle (and I am from Wa!) Get 'em Ellis, and mash Hamlin in Dallas too! (remember him and his mouth?)

    Incredibly weak. Boo the NFL, yeah Ellis. That was funny, called-for, totally not over-the-top, AND no one got hurt. Pathetic showing by the NFL's front office.


    To repeat nero- what happened?

    I agree. Goodell has been a strange one to figure out. He wants to Mr. Tough Guy by strict rule enforcement, yet he continues to let Pacman back into the League after each suspension? WTF? I'm willing to bet he's going to allow Vick back in as well.

    Eh, WTF ever!

    Yeah, these are the same Seahawks fans that decided to post sick 9/11 jokes on a Seahawks messageboard as a way to smack talk Giants fans.

    BTW, this is ridiculous. Good job Ellis.

    I wonder if Ellis could file charges against the fan for battery??
