The media has nothing better to do than to play private eye and cream their jeans creating drama.

The money not paid doesn't go to the NFL, but charities that the NFL supports.

Goodell is an idiot who doesn't like the steelers. Certainly if this was Tom Brady he would't think about fining the patriots

This is so stupid, fining the team for a players off field incident that didn't involve the actual team... so stupid.

Um, it helps if you actually read the article.

The team is NOT getting fined. Any suspension the PLAYER gets, the team, instead of playing the player, pays that money to the NFL.

Either way, it is money that was budgeted to be paid in salary. It isn't a "Fine" imposed.

Wait until the Rooney's say ''Ok, players, we're buying an apartment complex. Welcome to your new home.'' It's be like the friggin Military.

I found this answer on another forum:

"Patriots get a wrist slap for cheating, allowing them to win Super Bowls

Steelers face a fine for players, who weren't charged, making the league look bad.

Yeah, ok. "


You have to ask yourself and there is no third option here: would you rather have cheaters on your team that can't play fair, or people that don't cheat and may have some legal issues that in no way make it unfair for other teams?

Roger Goodell can suck my A$$
