    Two Vikes Fined

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/10/10/two-vikes-get-fined/

    The NFL continues to enforce its rules by taking money from the pockets of the players who break them.

    Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield has been fined $10,000 for using the goal post as a prop after scoring a touchdown on a blocked field goal return on Monday night.

    Winfield did the fire-pole slide thing down the padding of the post.

    Strangely, the NFL allows the dunking of the football over the cross bar.
    Any other use of the apparatus results in a fine.

    Linebacker Chad Greenway also gets to pay $7,500 for a major facemask penalty against running back Reggie Bush.
    The officials somehow missed the incident during the game.
    Bush fumbled while being tackled on the play, killing a drive that, if the flag had been thrown, would have put the Saints inside the Minnesota 20.

    Yeah, glady accepted.

    However, Ryan Clark (Steelers safety) was just fined $7,500 for a bad helmet to helmet hit against Matt Jones (Jags WR). Kind of bullshit, considering Winfields fine was $10,000 for sliding down the goal post padding. So you penalize the guy more that has a funny celebration opposed to a hit that could have hurt someone? I don't get it. Also hard to penalize Chad for a penalty that wasn't called. But hey, who got the "W"?
    ;D

    I won't. How many other players get fined when they commit a face-mask penalty? Damn few. 15 yards & that is it.

    Winfield's goal post grab doesn't even hold a candle to the shit Chad Johnson does. How often is he fined for his antics?

    Im sick of this.

    These fines are both BS. I wonder what makes the league allow the players to throw ball over goal post or spike it but they don't allow this.

    The
    Greenway penalty is way stupid i have seen alot worse face masks penatlies than that i guess they better start fining everbody who has one then huh?

    LMAO.
    Greenway's face mask was pretty bad.
    I completely understand him getting the fine.

    Re: Two Vikes Fined

    This is ridiculous , Greenway only got fined cause the referees missed the call , and I agree what is the difference between what Winfield did and T.O. and Gates , dunking the ball over the goalpost?

    Goodell is a piece of shit that favors teams who's owners got him his job... plain and simple (ie- Kraft).

    EDIT: Also... if Greenway is going to be fined, you should fine the refs that missed the call...
