Terrell Suggs fined $15,000 for punching Jerome Simpson

Baltimore Ravens v Pittsburgh Steelers

The NFL established a precedent this season with Richard Seymour, Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan that a punch will result in a $25,000 fine. By that standard, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs got off easy this week.

Suggs was fined $15,000 for punching Bengals receiver Jerome Simpson on Sunday.

The NFL said the fine was “for striking an opponent. Specifically, after the play was over, he struck the opponent in the face.” The NFL did not say why Suggs was fined less for striking an opponent in the face than Seymour, Johnson and Finnegan were.

Although the officials didn’t see the punch and didn’t throw a flag, Suggs confessed after the game.

“Luckily I got away with one,” Suggs said. “Usually I don’t get away with anything. They were too busy looking for the spot on the ball.”

Simpson wasn’t pleased that no flag was thrown.

“He threw a pretty good right hand at me,” Simpson said. “I walked to the ref and said ‘he just blatantly hit me in front of everyone and you didn’t see it?’ I guess he got away with one.”

    Instead of telling the ref, Simpson should have punched him back.

    @buffordtjustice
    Yeah, what a great idea. They didn’t see Suggs, so there is NO WAY that they see Simpson, huh?

    They ALWAYS catch the 2nd guy.

    He was fined an additional $15,000 for being retarded

    Simpson was lucky his altercation was with Suggs, had it been Ray Lewis, he would have been stabbed

    That way he can be flagged instead of Suggs.

    They also should have fined him another 15,000 bucks for being so ugly…..

    What no story of Ed Reeds brother running from the cops and jumping into the river and now prosumed dead.

    Suggs better just get used to Simpson running past his a$$ 6 points. Gonna start happening more and more! Whodey!

    A few years back, Suggs studied all night for a urine test.

    Think it would be 15k if he punched a Patriot? Probably 150k. Thanks for “protecting the shield” NFL.

    The Bengals should thank Suggs, then punch themselves in face because they stink.

    Terrell Suggs is a ****ing bitch. A Bengals offensive lineman (Andrew Whitworth) easily wrestled Terrell Suggs to the ground during the play and Suggs’ helmet fell off in the process. After the play, Jerome Simpson (a WR who is half the size of Whitworth) appeared to be handing Suggs his helmet. Then Sugg’s sucker-bitch slapped him. Suggs is too much of a p***** to go after someone his own size, so he took out his frustration on the smaller guy. Real tough

    Wife beating punk.

  18. cwitty63 says: Jan 8, 2011 11:27 AM

    If he were a better player they would of fined suggs $25,000…
    His confession got him off by $10,000 ?

  19. johntonioholmes says: Jan 8, 2011 11:54 AM

    It’s a good thing he didn’t tackle Simpson too hard or that fine would have been $50K.

    Tom Brady would have pooped in his pink panties if Suggs punched him.

    Care to say the same thing about James Harrison? Most of the comments are probably coming from Steelers/Browns/Bengals fans, which isn’t surprising that you point to Ray Lewis being a “murderer”…If that were the case, explain how he was ACQUITTED. Read a book idiots he faced his accusers and was found guilty of obstruction. Last time I checked…obstruction doesn’t equal murder, but then again in Pittsburgh apparently rape isn’t really rape either…even when you do it twice, all you have to do is have a photo op with the investigating officers

    Suggs actually said, during a radio interview, concerning the punch, that Simpson walked up to him and said “Tom Brady is my favorite quarterback.” Suggs, being a known joker, i.e. saying he was going to vote for Fitzpatrick over Brady for the Probowl, probably wasn’t serious – but then again….

    I don’t know about that Sarah, Brady spent his
    offseason sparring in the ring for conditioning. He
    loves boxing.
