    NFL to fine Bears players for fight at shooting range

    The NFL is expected to announce later today that Bears center Olin Kreutz and tackle Fred Miller, who were involved in a fight at an FBI shooting range in Chicago last month, will be fined $50,000 each for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

    The policy address off-field matters and specifically prohibits conduct that endangers NFL employees and casts a negative light on the league and its players.

    The altercation took place after a target shooting session during a barbecue for FBI employees and the players. Alcohol was consumed during the barbecue, but according to FBI officials, there was no drinking during the target practice. Miller suffered a broken jaw during the fight, but is back in the lineup.

    Miller initially said the injury, which required surgery, occurred in a fall at home. Neither player was suspended, and the Bears deferred to the NFL to mete out disciplinary action.

    That is Too Steep, $5,000 would have been sufficient.

    I guesst the NFL has made a statement to all the players, "next time, hit him so hard that they have to wire his mouth shut or we'll fine you $50,000."

    NFL - what we don't know won't hurt your wallet - policy LMAO!!! Cracking myself up :lol:

    Bears linemen fined $50,000 each

    NEW YORK (AP) - Chicago Bears offensive linemen Olin Kreutz and Fred Miller were fined $50,000 each Friday for a fight that violated the NFL's personal conduct policy.

    The players were involved in the fight last month at the FBI shooting range in the Chicago area, prompting an internal investigation by the bureau.

    NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue fined Kreutz and Miller because the league's special conduct policy addresses off-field matters. It specifically prohibits conduct that endangers NFL employees and casts a negative light on the league and its players.

    Kreutz broke Miller's jaw during the altercation. Miller, who needed surgery, originally claimed he was hurt in a fall at home. Bears coach Lovie Smith was unaware of the fight until days after it occurred.
