    It was obviously unintentional and because his arm was basically in open cast. That's like a 15 dollar fine to your average joe, so he probably doesn't care.

    I can't be the only one who saw the title and thought Murray was fined because of his *** showing.

    Can the league suspend a player if they refuse to pay fines like this? I was wondering because some of them are pretty damn trivial.

    I don't believe they have any choice. That money comes out of their pay. They never see it.

    Most fines are ridiculous. These two are no exception.

    As if the NFL doesn't enough make money throughout the year, they feel they have to go out and steal thousands of dollars from the players who make them their money. The stuff that happens in a game happens in a blink of an eye, and rarely do they have time to stop, and say to themselves, 'oh, that's illegal, i shouldn't, i'll get fined'

    I can remember Emmitt breaking his hand on a Vikings players facemask as he drove him into the endzone. Don't remeber a flag.

    I don't see how anyone could argue against the fine for Ware. He punched the QB in the head. I'm sure that wasn't his intention but he did it.

    That was nearly 20 years ago. Rules change.

    What a load of crap! You could tell it wasn't intentional. Ware even stood over the rapist crybaby to see if he was ok! Unbelievable!! And to top it off,the 'Stealers' did not get penalized. What a scam! It's the looney(Rooney) rules.

    When the play with Ware occurred I thought it might get a fine, so not too surprised by that. The fine with Murray however is a complete surprise. smh

    I hate to admit it, but it being Ben Rapistburger, I was happy when it happened. I think the fine is a bit egregious though - given that the dude was wearing a helmet.

    Except that the rule hasn't changed.

    According to the 2012 case book (NB, it's a pdf link), a runner can grasp a defender's facemask as long as he does not twist, turn, or pull. It's A.R. 14.15 (c) on page 83 of the casebook.

    There have been at least a half a dozen hits on Tony Romo much worse than what Ware did to Rothlisberger. Maybe a dozen. Hits to the head. Low hits. You name it.

    Any fines? Nope.

    I think the league actually breaks open a bottle of champaign and makes a toast whenever Romo gets rocked.

    This is just a complete farce.
