Perry Riley fined $15,750 for hit on Tony Romo

Perry Riley AP

The Redskins didn’t have enough go right as a team on the field last Sunday to avoid losing to the Cowboys.

One member of the team also didn’t have enough go right on the field to avoid a fine from the NFL. The league has confirmed to PFT that Redskins linebacker Perry Riley has been fined $15,750 for a hit on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Riley hit Romo after the Cowboys quarterback delivered a pass in the first quarter of the game that was deemed to be a personal foul by the officials working the contest. Riley’s hit was a little late and a little high, which is usually all it is ever going to take to draw punishment from the league office.

Cowboys safety Barry Church was not fined by the league after picking up a pair of personal fouls for hits on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III as Griffin made his way out of bounds on running plays during the game. Griffin admitted this week that he sometimes tries to dupe defenders into such hits, although he said that wasn’t his intent on either of Church’s fouls.

    Perry Riley had a rough day.
    Dude got penalized repeatedly and smoked by Witten and 5-games-per-year-Murray.

    Griffin is lying through that gigantic gap in his teeth about not baiting Church on that first penalty

    Good. Romo gets hit late all the time and hardly gets the calls. Griffin was barely touched on the sidelines and he was trying to draw a penalty. High stepping ass!

    Besides bad knees, RGIII has bad PR people.

    No penalty was tossed on that play so the cowboys got a 90 TD. Amerson can’t tackle worth crap anyway so it doesn’t matter. Orakpo can’t even tackle this year.

    I think it matters. He’s a starter on our team.

    Didn’t anyone tell Riley that Romo can play and win with broken ribs and punctured lungs? The Redskins didn’t have enough go right as a team? The Redskins are simply not a good team. Especially compared to America’s Team.

    Typical idiotic response from a Cowboy fan. If the hit was “legal” your player’s pockets wouldn’t be $20k lighter. Last I checked launching yourself into a defenseless player and making helmet to helmet contact is ILLEGAL. It just so happens that the head referee is a native Texan and decided to let it slide during the game…

    The infamous “passive” player blocked into the punt. Even though this “passive” player was engaged in a block. Redskins get screwed.

    I think the true idiots would be your father and mother for coming out to you about really being brother and sister. I know it was when the Boys were whipping your sorry team so I can see the hate. Cowboys = Truth about your parents.

    Now pick you lip up and make me a sammitch. Extra pickles boy!!!

    @dirtydrynn27 the cowboys were voted America’s team based on popularity and how many fans they have (that were polled obviously) not because of recent success. Any team that wins the poll based on recent success won because of bandwagon fans not because of fans who are loyal through good times and bad. Also I’m tired of hearing redskin fans blaming the loss to dallas on officiating maybe y’all should look at your QB who sucks and is incapable of playing QB. He was only good last year because of the read option and play action neither of which are working this year and he has no pocket skills to fall back on. Maybe just maybe he should be held somewhat accountable.

    Really, the NFC east is a weak division this year, really poor. Sure Dallas beat Washington but that was not anything to brag about. Your team is not so good you should be thumping your chest. See where your team is at when the season ends. Not in the Superbowl that’s for sure.

    You FM cowgirl fans are as dumb as you can get. Your BS of a team did nothing last Sunday night. The Redskins beat themselves and gave your crap team 2 big special team plays. How do I know that then where was the 500 yds game and 4 tds from your bs qb I. say where!!!!!!!. Your team is a joke as the fans but what’s even a bigger Joke your owner is as dumb can be. SEE YOU LOSER IN D.C.!!!!!!!
