Re: Sanders and Steelers fined 50K
This is actually an indirect result of the media trying to make up stories around Ben. Now, as we see in the clip below, Sanders falls, and Ben is concerned for his team mates health. He quickly realizes this is a very painful and serious quad cramp. He signals the coaches to let them know, as he's a team player.
Now, as we all know the media wants to make us all think Haley and Ben hate each other. Goodell buys into this, so when he reviews the tape of this incident, he thinks he just saw Ben point at Haley and signal him to kiss his ass. So he doesn't see the evidence that this is indeed a life threatening situation that Sanders is in. Boom, fines are levied, and everybody loses. Sanders could have been killed out there.
