    The Denver Broncos are screaming mad after the NFL weighed in on an altercation between Broncos center Tom Nalen and Chargers DT Igor Olshansky.

    NFL NAILS NALEN

    After reviewing video of Broncos center Tom Nalen diving at the knees of Chargers defensive end Igor Olshansky on Sunday, one league source opined that Nalen should be fined twice the amount that Olshansky ultimately is fined for slapping Nalen upside the head in retaliation.

    The NFL took it even farther than 200 percent.

    Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that the league has fined Nalen $25,000, but fined Olshansky only $10,000.

    Olshansky was penalized and ejected.
    Nalen's actions did not draw a penalty.

    Nalen's actions came as the Broncos were in the process of spiking the ball in order to kill the clock.
    The other Denver linemen did not engage any Chargers defenders on the play.


    Though Glazer reports that the Broncos are livid about the fine, we think that Coach Kevlar and company should, with all due respect, shut up.
    Nalen clearly was in the wrong, and it's about time that the league gets tough on the cheap-shot tactics that the team has been teaching under Mike Shanahan for the past decade.

    There was no reason for what Nalen did. He knew they were spiking the ball, so although what he did was technically "legal" it was definately not ethical.

    Great article and it is about time somebody calls out Denver and Shanahan.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Serves him right for cut-blocking like a nancy-boy. Denver needs to stand up and play football like football like men!
    I know the Packers are using this technique as well, but I generally try not to make fun of or scold the handicapped.
