Harrison, Havner, Brayton, Babineaux among NFL fines

We started posting individual items on each of the fines handed down by the NFL this week, but the NFL hands down fines faster than we can report them, so we’ll mention a few at once here.

Steelers linebacker James Harrison was fined $5,000 for punching Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth.

Packers tight end Spencer Havner was fined $5,000 for a late hit in Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.

Panthers defensive end Tyler Brayton was fined $5,000 for a low hit on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Cardinals cornerback Bryant McFadden was fined $5,000 for facemasking Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cardinals running back Beanie Wells and Seahawks safety Deon Grant were each fined $5,000 for hitting each other, and Seahawks safety Jordan Babineaux was fined $7,500 for a horse collar tackle on Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin.

  3. all these fines are ridiculous…..Get over yourself Goodell. How about you get fined once in a while for being a douchebag

  4. Florio. It would be interesting to have a grand total of fines paid by NFL players for “09” I’ll bet it’s in the millions at this rate.

  5. Anyone have any idea what the NFL fine would be for Jeffrey Kessler punching out Roger Goodell?
    This *hit is absurd. Stop it already.
    To illustrate how absurd NFL fines have gotten it needs to be illustrated in it’s entirety on a weekly basis, one summary of all fines and the amount.
    If Artie Donovan is still alive he’s laughing his ass off, if not he’s rolling over in his grave.

  6. The league will probably send the bill for the fine to Rodney Harrison instead of James Harrison out of habit…….

  7. Considering the weekly fines given out by this league you would figure this should create some kind of image problem.
    When is some geek going to start profootballfines.com ?
    The NFL office > Local traffic court

  8. Shoulda checked first, Art Donovan is still alive and kicking.
    A good man, and as funny as he was a good football player.

  9. STOP CRYING. JESUS. Rookie minimum for a season is in the 250k range. at 5k a week (which isn’t what they’re being fined), it’d be around 85k for the season. It’d still be only 33% of their NFL wage.. and we all know for a fact, every guy on this list makes well over a mil a season.. and horse collar tackles have always been fined, ask Roy Williams considering it is the Roy Williams rule.

  10. Roger should just put them all in time out during the game.
    “Now guys that was too rough, go into the tunnel, face the wall and think about what you’ve done.”

  11. That’s a joke. This fine BS is outta control. Goodell thinks he can collect for any infraction. Look for this to be a part of the CBS next go around.

  12. Rodgers was barely out of bounds when Havner made his hit…the Cowboys whined and got a penality, but there’s no way he should have been fined.

  13. I thought you were supposed to be ejected from the game for punching someone. So why is it now just a fine?

  14. It was only a fine because it’s James Harrison, guy gets away with more underhanded dirty garbage than anyone in the league. Yes, steelers fans, I know he gets “held on EVERY play,” but he’s still dirty.
