I just read the following article about 4 players from the Bears-niners game last week that were fined.
Bears RT Chris williams was fined for a late hit, Delanie walker fined for kicking another player, T. Brown for taunting, and Arnaz Battle for facemasking. I can understand the late hit and kicking another player but a bogus taunting call and facemasking? Are you serious?
Under Goodells watch the NFL seems to be fining players more than ever and IMO if it continues it is going to hurt the quality of play because players will be tentative to do anything because they will be in fear of getting fined. Is it Goodell that has been causing the increase? I don't thing the NFL is "dirtier" than it was when Roselle and Taglibue were comissioners. What do you guys think?
