It cost Shaun Smith $10,000 to grab a guy's junk

The eye in the sky doesn’t lie.

Cameras caught Chiefs defensive lineman Shaun Smith grabbing 49ers tackle Anthony Davis’ nether regions last Sunday, and the NFL has responded.

Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports Smith will pay $10,000 for the infraction.  Smith was accused of similar genital grabbing the week before, but avoided punishment there.

If Smith wants to keep up his hit streak this week, he’ll have to do it in practice.  The Chiefs are on a bye.

  1. ‘If Smith wants to keep up his hit streak this week, he’ll have to do it in practice. The Chiefs are on a bye.’
    That’s funny material.
    I can’t believe I reading a junk-grabbing story.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  2. He’s not gay.
    Have you ever been hit in the ‘nether regions’? You don’t want to even breath much less try to block on a pass play or pull on a running play.
    Mr. Smith just wanted to slow up the opposition.
    I read Bill Romonowski’s book and he tells of a story at the bottom of a pile he grabbed the RB’s finger and broke it, just to maybe get him out of the game or make a fumble happen in the future.
    This stuff happens all the time in the piles. Only now do camera catch it more often.

  3. If they had been playing in San Fran he could have pick up “junk” off the street for a lot less than $10,000.00

  4. He should have been fined far more than that. $10K is what guys get fined for celebrating a TD and Smith actions were far more offensive to most NFL fans…….

  5. I’ll be sure to check back in a couple hours to read what is assured to be great Friday afternoon humor here in the comments section on this one.

  6. They should change the rules to make it OK to bitch slap anyone who grabs another guy’s junk during a game.

  7. LOL great title this is just too funny, Im surprised the 49er complained about it, i thought dudes in san fran liked that kind of stuff

    Maybe Shaun Smith is spending his off week in a Minnasota Airport bathroom looking for a senator.

    LOL Now that’s some funny stuff

  9. I was wondering why the 9er fans were cheering so loudly on that play!
    from the window to the walls, that guy just grabbed his ba!!s

  10. Honestly, I can’t see shit on this video.
    There is nothing to see, except that his shoulder his near his nuts and Davis slaps him on the back.

  11. We don’t know if he grabbed them at all. Or if they were there to grab. All the 49ers play like their balls haven’t dropped yet!! Except frank gore. Jeff Garcia would have been all over Shaun asking to hook up after the game if he was still there!!

    Or a quarterback.

  13. I don’t see how that video proves anything. Look, it seems common practice to push/grab a players thighs as he is driving them against another player. Hands can slip on moving thighs and end up anywhere. Did anyone see the video of Steven Jackson’s thighs getting grabbed and pulled apart like a wishbone against the Redskins? That may have resulted in his injured groin. An NFL player plays with a cup protecting his junk. Only his cup can get grabbed/touched, and that’s just a piece of equipment. What’s the big deal?

  14. Dude, you’re rich! Don’t get fined for it when you could just grab some from a tranny for way less!

  15. Planters Nuts wanted Shaun to endorse their product. He wanted some samples first, so they sent him a grab bag.

    Don’t these guys wear a cup?
    ===============================
    a lot of them claim it slows them down

  17. This is unacceptable! Ball play is a clear violation of the leagues “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

  18. It’s not often that a defensive lineman gets called a “ball hawk”, but in this case, the name will work just fine….LOL
    In related news, the Chiefs are trying to put together a trade “package” to deal Smith….

  19. He could save himself some money and just grab a Viking fan’s junk. They would love it and probably pay him for the pleasure.

  20. So my buddy and I are watching the game and I actually see this guy grab the other guys nuts…I fly off the couch and start yelling at the screen about it…my friend doesn’t believe me but his receiver is a dvr so we play it back a couple times…just roaring…never seen anything like it, but you couldn’t miss it…and it was a seriously full-handed grab…no way was it accidental…

  21. “Don’t these guys wear a cup?”
    @jcjets that’s what I said when the first incident happened a couple weeks ago. If they’re out there without one they’re asking to get it in the balls.

    What city or town are you from?
    Any man who uses “LOL” on a football site maybe should question their own sexuality.

  23. Shaun Smith is the only one who will get credit for a “sack” and not actually have it be on the quarterback.

  24. 10K, That’s it? You can get fiend that much for “leading with the head/ shoulder.” Ball grabbing is totally different
