Default NFL fines Steelers' Clark $40,000

Wow, just wow! Goodell is such a tool.

No fine to Ray Lewis so far that I can see for the blatant helmet to helmet on Hines.

OMG I'm so pissed off right now.

that's the biggest bullshit ever. if you look at the video it's obvious as day that ryan clark was attacking the football



i think this pisses me off more than the actual game. this was how football is supposed to be played! should we just drop the pads and play freakin flag football? what next? defensive players are gonna be fined for tackling someone too hard? oh wait, happened to james last year.

This is why I'm starting to care about college football more than the NFL.

My sig says it all. This league will be as relevant as Boxing once Goodell is all but done with it. What a dickhead. Goodell is officially ruining the game on all measures. Shame.

This link says 20k now. Clarks is only higher because he's already been fined on the season.

The reason I think Goodell is a joke right now is because the fines, and even the penalties, are hardly a deterrent and in no way promote player safety (or at least the kind of player safety he keeps talking about). As much as I despise Gary Bettman (NHL commish), he's at least taking strides to actually make hockey safer, and if you are a repeat offender (even if it happened the season before...i.e. Kris Letang this year), it's an automatic suspension. You get any more black marks in the season, and the suspension just gets bigger (i.e. Matt Cooke missing the entire 1st round playoff series last season). That coupled with fines according to your pay makes players think twice and coaches take notice. This bullshit that Goodell hands out as deterrents is a joke at best. **** him.

Case and point is Lewis' remark about the fine (which is consistent with pretty much what every player says after they get a fine). The players pretty much think it's a joke as well.

"Yeah, I heard from the league and like I said they fined me whatever they was going to fine me,” Lewis told the Carroll County Times. “The thing is you definitely respect them trying to protect player safety. At the same time, it won’t change not one way I play this week no matter what the fine is. You can’t stop playing defense the way defense has always been created to play. When the receiver has the ball, your job is to disengage him from the ball. You never want to hurt nobody. I’ve been in this business too long. I just think once you start getting into these fines I don’t know how they come up with the numbers most of the time.”

tbh i don't even think ray lewis should get fined, neither should. it's football! It's not a pretty boy sport, it's a man's sport and should allow room for hard hitting. im a little old school and think defensive players need to earn their keep too

This is a joke! The union needs to do something about King Goodell's one man goal of ending football as we know it, if they don't, I'm afraid we as fans need to protest somehow- but how I have no idea.
