Default Steelers' Porter fined for remarks

Steelers' Porter fined for remarks
Thursday, December 14, 2006

By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers linebacker Joey Porter was fined $10,000 today by the National Football League for a derogatory comment he made about Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow.

It was the second time Porter has been disciplined by the league this season. He was fined $15,000 for comments he made to an official during an Oct. 22 game in Atlanta.

After a 27-7 victory against the Browns last Thursday, Porter twice called Winslow a derogatory name associated with gay men. Porter publicly apologized Tuesday for using the word, saying he didn't mean to offend anyone "except Winslow."

So, Porter is fined 10 grand for what he said, but Winslow has only a personal foul for an intentional late hit which could have seriously injured another player......ok.

Well, we can't have anybody's feelings get hurt. So what if that cheap shot could have ended someone else's career....

WTF, you are right. The NFL fines people for "name-calling" which can hurt you physically, but when someone pulls out a late hit that could hurt somebody, they don't give a crap.
It doesn't make sense at all.

In other news...following Mike Vicks example of giving his fine to the charity of his choice...Joey Porter has pledged his $10,000 to Kevin Winslow as seed money for a sex change.

So if you get fined $15,000 for threatening a ref and get fined $10,000 for calling someone a f****t, I guess by the league's logic you get fined $25,000 for calling a ref a f****t (and $30,000 if you do all of that while dancing the dirty biird in the end zone).

It would be entertaining to hear the alleged logic underlying the calculation of these fine amounts.
