Frank Alexander fined $15,750 for throwing punch

Frank Alexander AP

Panthers defensive end Frank Alexander’s first action of the 2013 season came to a quick halt last Sunday when he was ejected for throwing a punch at Seahawks right tackle Breno Giacomini.

As you’d expect, getting ejected was just one part of Alexander’s punishment. PFT confirmed with the league that Alexander has also been fined $15,750 for taking a swing at Giacomini.

We have also confirmed that Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright has been fined $7,875. Wright was given a personal foul for dragging Panthers safety Colin Jones off the pile of players battling to get their hands on a ball that caromed off a Panthers player on a Seahawks punt. The Seahawks recovered the ball, although Wright’s penalty put them in worse field position when the offense returned to the field.

    He should have clotheslined somebody first. Then he could have thrown a few punches, not get ejected, AND had a low fine!

    Nice run-on paragraph at the end there. Geez that was hard to read.

    How does Matthews not get fined for the punch/slap he sent in Staley’s direction?

    Yet roid mathews throws and connects with 3 punches and not only does he not get ejected for it, he doesnt even get fined for it.
    The difference between the leagues little golden boys and the rest of the players. Its disgusting.

    Wait till an offensive lineman get’s fined for allowing a sack or holding to aggressively. Are there any other results when money, ego, and scrutiny are incorporated into a full contact game? These fines are dumb. The league looks ridiculous. With obvious exceptions, the penalties should remain in-game. Let the players play, let them govern themselves.

    Steve Smith up in Alexander’s face yelling at him for losing his cool and throwing punches was hilarious. Like Steve doesn’t fly off and punch people often.

    Hypocrite!
