Aaron Curry fined $20,000 for hit on Tim Tebow

Broncos' Tebow is tackled by Raiders' Curry during the second quarter of their NFL football game in Oakland Reuters

Raiders linebacker Aaron Curry is lighter in the wallet as a result of a hit on Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow on Sunday.

Curry was fined $20,000 for striking Tebow in the head and neck area, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports.

Although Thursday night was only Curry’s fourth game as a Raider, he has already lost $30,000 to fines. He was previously fined $10,000 for a late hit against the Chiefs.

Curry gave Tebow a bloody lip on Sunday, but Tebow says he’s not going to change his running style.

    Worth every penny.

    Well, at leastour penalties are down.

  5. essentialsausage says: Nov 11, 2011 4:48 PM

    Quick, everyone start calling him a dirty player! Or does that only happen to players that are good?

    “Curry gave Tebow a bloody lip on Sunday, but Tebow says he’s not going to change his running style.”

    What is the point in even saying this? He was in the pocket on this play.

    The NFL would have given Curry $20000 if he had hit Vick the same way. (I love Tebow btw but omg are you kidding)

  8. Stupid Raiders Fan says: Nov 11, 2011 5:04 PM

    Is this the same Aaron Curry that Seatle no longer wanted?

    He looked good last night, putting pressure on Rivers, flying all over the place making plays

    None of the writers on this site actually watch the games… They just write whatever ‘Ham Sandwich’ King from si says happened

    That hit somehow gave Trent Green another concussion.

  11. thebraso says: Nov 11, 2011 5:28 PM

    his hit on Tebow was in the pocket guys. But dont let the facts get in the way of your mocking.

    @Stupid Raiders Fan
    Yeah, I wouldn’t have wanted to play in Seattle either. I was hoping the Giants would have traded for him, but that’s the frustrating thing, They don’t typically chase after guys in FA, or trade for anyone. What did the Raiders trade for him? A 5th?

  13. packmanfan says: Nov 11, 2011 5:34 PM

    Where is your god to help you when you get hit Timmy Tbag? Why isn’t he putting a force field around you to protect you?

  14. war27 says: Nov 11, 2011 5:51 PM

    Why doesn’t this guy have 3000yard and 15 td’s already? god have better things to do?

  15. raiders4life says: Nov 11, 2011 5:51 PM

    Aaron Curry will turn out to be a great pick up for the Raiders. It didn’t workout for him up in Seattle’s system but he seems to thrive in Oakland’s. Al Davis approved.

  16. rayguyreturns says: Nov 11, 2011 5:56 PM

    Tebow wants to act like a running back and ref’s treat him like a “quarterback”. Curry hit him on the top of the chest on that play and the top of his helmet grazed Tebow’s facemask.
    Look at the picture and see where Curry’s head is- it’s at the top of the chest.

    Curry is a good find. Thanks Seattle.

    Another b.s. fine from the No Fun League.

    Curry has been good on the Raiders?

    That is not what I’ve seen…

  19. joetoronto says: Nov 11, 2011 6:17 PM

    Other than last week, when he had to play MLB in place of RoMac, the kid has looked good, he has a high motor and he really wants to succeed.

    Great pickup.

    Yeah!! You’d donate 2 years of your Mickey D’s salary to take a shot at Tebow?

    He’s more than half way there (tds)with 3 games under his belt mr. dumas.

    Take a look at the video of this “hit” and tell me Goodell is not out of control. He pushed him late out of bounds. $20K?

  23. rickthefactor says: Nov 11, 2011 6:30 PM

    really? does curry even have 20,000 for a fine? and for all the raider fans thinking he was a good find. watch the tape from the past couple games. he still looks like a seahawk with his cut off out in coverage. if rivers had BOTH of his pro bowl lineman in last night, curry would have been lit up by gates! Brian bosworth could have sacked rivers last night, lets not get ahead of ourselves raiders fans.

  24. dawkattack says: Nov 11, 2011 6:44 PM

    Looks like the sternum to me

  25. raideralex99 says: Nov 11, 2011 6:46 PM

    how much did Miller get fined on the cheap late hit on Palmer which was 100x worst.
    After yesterday’s game … It proves the refs had it in for the Raiders in the Broncos game …. Penalties were the only way the Broncos were going to win.

  26. dontrunfromme says: Nov 11, 2011 6:48 PM

    @rickthefactor your right the chargers were just one or two lineman away from kicking their butts. It was really close joker

  27. zwilson56 says: Nov 11, 2011 6:49 PM

    @JSpicoli- He wasn’t fined for the hit out of bounds, he was fined for a hit (seen in the picture above) after Tebow released a pass.

  28. rundmc81 says: Nov 11, 2011 7:10 PM

    Who was it that knocked McNeil out of the game??? Oh yeah, it was Curry.. I believe the commentators said “lit him up like a Christmas tree”

  29. detroitrollin22 says: Nov 11, 2011 7:23 PM

    Aaron Curry actually hit someone????

  30. failcopter says: Nov 11, 2011 7:37 PM

    Curry getting fines for illegal hits . . .
    Housh throwing punches. . .

    Man, these guys are fitting right in!

    (Raiders fan here)

  31. yahmule says: Nov 11, 2011 8:17 PM

    Curry hit Tebow in the pocket, but the refs declined to penalize him for the obvious infraction. Not that it mattered since Oakland was determined to take enough stupid penalties to lose that game regardless.

  32. 44mpo says: Nov 11, 2011 8:32 PM

    Where do all these “fines” the NFL impose go to?
    It seems like it’s gone crazy this year.

    Miller was fined 15,000 for that hit. But nice conspiracy theory, Raiderfan. It must be tough to constantly have the world out to get ya, huh?

  34. rajbais says: Nov 11, 2011 9:03 PM

    That’s the first time he’s ever done anything intense!!!

  35. vahawker says: Nov 11, 2011 9:09 PM

    Curry went years without hitting anyone…he probably just forgot how. Still looked like poo in coverage..aHUGE liability.

  36. ronswansonsdinner says: Nov 11, 2011 9:18 PM

    Curry hit Tebow out of bounds and then after the game apologized to him about the hit. Classy guy. Hope he does well with the Raiders.

  37. racerx1225 says: Nov 11, 2011 9:29 PM

    Dericivy its time to get glasses. He’s been mustard. DO you even watch the games? Obviously not.

  38. racerx1225 says: Nov 11, 2011 9:30 PM

    H elit McNeil a 330 lber up like a CHristmas tree and knocked him out of the game Monsieur Dercivy, lol… Llama..

  39. racerx1225 says: Nov 11, 2011 10:40 PM

    McNeil had to be carted off…. Curry was a beast last night.

    __________________________________
    Hmmm … I missed that one … only $15,000 … I guess it’s a $5,000 discount if it’s against a Raider player.
    As for the conspiracy theory … think what you want … new rules always come up in Raider games just like last night’s game on the fake punt not even the announcers knew about that rule.

  41. therolandobottom says: Nov 11, 2011 11:40 PM

    They forgot to mention that the fine was doubled because he is black, and a Raider. Two things Roger Goodell will not tolerate.

  42. chikiboy says: Nov 12, 2011 4:25 AM

    Raider fans (and Willis McGahee) can thank Aaron Curry for the two TD’s by McGahee (especially the long TD run).

    He has no football IQ or coverage skills for that matter.

  43. joetoronto says: Nov 12, 2011 5:41 AM

    We take other teams garbage and make them players and what happens?

    The fans of the old team are all butt hurt.

    Stay classy, losers.

  44. j0esixpack says: Nov 12, 2011 7:25 AM

    Man, think of how high the fine would be if he hit a quarterback!

  45. raiderapologist says: Nov 12, 2011 10:20 AM

    The team should have fined his stupid ass $30,000 for hitting Tebow late out of bounds to keep a dead drive alive.

  46. rl58 says: Nov 12, 2011 11:36 AM

    lets not get ahead of our Selves Charger fans…. If ands and buts, candies and nuts,,, If the Raiders had De Mack,,, the Raiders would have lit up the score board…. The long Bush runs would have been TOUCH DOWNS on that sorry Defense the Chargers have….
