Default Jets' Ellis fined $10,000 for tossing snow at fans

Did anyone see this? He threw a HUGE snow BRICK at Seahawks fans after the Jets' loss Sunday. It's actually pretty hilarious when you see it. Nobody got hurt. There's 2 different camera angles in the videos.

Coach Eric Mangini thought his team was put in a dangerous predicament as it walked off the field, saying several people were pelted with snowballs.

"That situation in the stadium in general was not a very safe situation for anybody involved," Mangini said. "That doesn't justify us getting involved in it on the flip side of that. He understands that. We thought that there could've been more done to prevent what was happening in terms of the safety from snowballs coming down."

Mangini seemed to indicate the Jets could file a formal complaint to the league regarding the behavior of Seattle's fans.

"I wouldn't want that to happen at our stadium," he said. "I'm sure Seattle didn't want that, either. It's just something that hopefully can be avoided whether it's us, Seattle, whoever in the future. You just don't want someone to get struck and hurt in that environment."

the jets were in a bad situation but this accident could be a head-ACHE

if the person who got hit could sue the player the team and the league... thats a lot of money

the person who "got hit" actually caught the beachball sized clump of snow and seemed happy and proud to do so.

however that was dumb by ellis especially if it woulda landed on a little kids head.

I can't beleive Mangina is throwing a fit over snowballs. His players are wearing helmets and pads anyhow, it's not like they are in any real danger.

If you don't wanna get pelted with some snowballs, then run into the tunnel where the fans can't hit you with the big bad snowballs!

Ellis should be arrested. Looked like the fan suffered major health trouble.

Idiotic move by an idiotic player. Like already stated, you're a big bad football player and can knock around and get knocked around by big strong men, but you throw a tantrum when someone throws snowballs at you. Moron...
