Winslow fined for hit that provoked Porter comments

Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for a late hit in the team's 27-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 7.

Ironically, the fine is the result of the play that provoked Steelers linebacker Joey Porter into characterizing Winslow with a slur typically associated with a gay man. Porter this week was fined $10,000 by the league for comments which the NFL termed "vulgar and inexcusable."


The play in question occurred with 6:40 remaining in the Thursday night game at Heinz Field. On a first-and-10 from the Cleveland 48-yard line, quarterback Derek Anderson completed an 8-yard pass to tailback Reuben Droughns. After the whistle, Winslow hit Pittsburgh inside linebacker James Farrior and drew a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty.


The Cleveland possession culminated in a 45-yard touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards.


Several Steelers players were incensed by Winslow's actions, none more so than the outspoken Porter, who charged the Browns' tight end with being "soft." Porter subsequently made the controversial comments that resulted in the $10,000 fine.


It is not known if Winslow will appeal the $5,000 fine.

HMMMMMM $10,000 for saying a word.....$5000 for possiable ending a career. Makes no sense to me. Sounds like prejudice is part of the fine system as well. Guess if your tuff you pay more. Guess if your soft and G** you pay less.

Better late than never I guess. :yawn:
I agree with tony, you have to wonder if Porter had been tight lipped about it, would it have happened.

Couldnt agree more. The NFL is waaaaay offside on this one. But it appears their inconsistency is the only consistent thing going.

It takes awhile for them to go thru all the bad and the ugly. Ive seen fines come up to two weeks later. But I think Farrior getting that nice hit on him after the fact was great. Winslow will no better then to take a shot on Farrior next time.

This "politically correct" manure is now infecting the NFL, is getting beyond ridiculous and that's all I'm going to say. :shake02:

I was disgusted after hearing about the hit, but not surprised at all. I've thought of Winslow II as a punk ever since the 'f****n soldier' comment when he was still with Miami. I guess he really hasn't changed (the $5,000 won't make a difference either).

That's all Winslow is, is a punk. He is garbage in my opinion.

I was going to bring up the same point.

The only REAL compensation was watching Farrior level Winslow right afterwards and walk away with a BIG smile on his face.............PRICELESS!

Winslow's name doesn't even deserve to be mentioned on this forum.

Winslow got fined for a good reason.He should have been fined 20,000+.
Porter got fined for telling the truth. LOL. The most Porter should have gotten is maybe 1,000
