Chase Coffman fined $30,000 for taking out Ravens assistant

AP

The Titans have been irrelevant all year.  They’ve found some relevance, in an unwanted way.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports has video of Tennessee tight end Chase Coffman taking out a Ravens assistant coach on the sidelines after a play last week in Baltimore.

Per Glazer, the league office levied a $30,000 fine against Coffman for knocking down the civilian.  The Ravens were upset, the Titans claimed it was inadvertent, and the video speaks for itself.

In 2010, the Jets drew a $100,000 fine — and strength coach Sal Alosi eventually lost his job — when Alosi tripped Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll during a punt.

  1. “The Ravens were upset, the Titans claimed it was inadvertent, and the video speaks for itself.”

    That’d be great if you actually provided a video to watch.

  2. The Ravens know a cheap shot when they see one. They have guys getting fined for them every week.

  3. He should miss at least a couple games without pay. Full extension of the arms and he even seems to accelerate through the hit. Pathetic. But marshawn lynch is the bad guy? Roger in NYC is so Inconsistent he has got to go.

  4. On the video it looks like he shoved him on purpose. But even video might be misleading. It’s possible he was trying to stop him from falling after initial contact. Who knows. Apparently the NFL thinks it was intentional.

    Makes sense.

    Meanwhile Lynch to be fined $100k for not doing pressers.

    Almost like Goodell is pulling this stuff out of his derriere.
    =======================================

    Lynch is being threatened with a fine for Repeatedly refusing to Honor HIS Contract. I don’t expect Seadderal rookie fans to comprehend anything work or football related though.

  6. $100,000 dollars for Rex Ryan cussing out officials but $30,000 dollars for Coffman purposely taking out an assistant coach? Someone is going to have to help me out with the logic on this one.

  7. Dude went hunting for that guy…he wasn’t even on the sideline, he was second level deep…..
    He’s lucky he didn’t get charged with assault. That was no football play.

    Lol. You used “logic” and “NFL” in the same post. Does PFT have comedy of the year post awards. I’d like to nominate this one.

  9. They shoulda just put Coffman under a lie detector test down at the local PD for something like video footage being an arbitrary thing subject to interpretation. I’d pay a few thousand out of my own pocket to prove my innocence & save me $30K. Plus the vet has had many chances the last few years to stick to a roster, this could be his last.

  10. Everything looks intentional & avoidable in slo-mo. But it certainly looks pretty bad. He’s a scrub so I could care less about what happens to him.

    Watching us hoist the Lombardi still hurts, huh?

  12. This is nothing but karma for the Raven’s years of cheap shots every week. When you support a double-murderer for 10 years you have nothing but bad karma coming your way. Enjoy!
