ONCE again the league under hitler goddell is just USING the Steelers to "send a message"... yet somehow never punishes the pretty teams of the NFL.

Now the question is are they going to fine Victor Cruz for faking a head injury after getting hit in the ribs

You can fine an organization $35k for something they didn't know about or encourage? Wtf. I dont get why Rooney doesn't stand up to Fuhrer Goodell. He has a big enough name to put him in his place.
it would be interesting to see what would happen if the Rooneys just flat-out refused to pay the fine.

This is the players asscoaitions fault. I know that, they and we, wanted the game to get back sooner than later but allowing the league this much power is ridiculous. This won't stop especially considering the Steelers were the only team to vote against the CBA. Damn, that's just wrong. Maybe them hitting the Rooney's will make the organization stand up and fight back a little. I don't think he cramped up either but now a cramp is up to debate??????? Go Steelers!

I think he was faking and being a dick too
But
Don't think it's fair for the nfl to dish out fines for something that can't be proved

Eh, hopefully it gives the team another "us against the world" chip to play with. Seems like professionals play their best when they feel conspired against

Yes but he wasn't a Steeler Player!

Come on dude, get with the program -- Steelers bad, Steelers must be punished, Steelers are evil.

They deemed sanders is too dumb to fake an injury?lol

How much would it take to convince someone your leg cramped up? Seriously does it take a college MBA to be able to legitimize a leg cramp?
