NFL fines Aqib Talib $26,044 for Super Bowl personal fouls

SANTA CLARA, CA - FEBRUARY 07:  Aqib Talib #21 of the Denver Broncos celebrates after defeating the Carolina Panthers during Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium on February 7, 2016 in Santa Clara, California.

Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib got two personal fouls in Super Bowl 50, and the NFL has fined him for both of them.

Talib was fined a total of $26,044 for facemasking and taunting against the Panthers.

The NFL suspended Talib during the regular season for an eye poke, and he’s lucky he wasn’t suspended again for his Super Bowl actions. The facemasking foul was especially egregious, and Talib admitted after the game that he did it on purpose, figuring that since the penalty was at the 3-yard line, the half the distance to the goal line penalty wouldn’t be a big deal.

When it comes to on-field misconduct, Talib is a repeat offender. The NFL will be watching him closely in 2016, and further offenses may result in another suspension.

    Disgusting player. I’m so glad he’s not with the Redskins. We only sign class acts.

  2. unbridledsexy says: Feb 12, 2016 4:17 PM

    BS punishment for a foul like that. That’s like me getting a $5 parking ticket.

  3. edelmanfanclub says: Feb 12, 2016 4:19 PM

    What a joke he admitted he facemasked him purposely to prevent him from scoring, he could have broke his neck. He should be suspended.

  4. 74life says: Feb 12, 2016 4:21 PM

    Would’nt hurt my feelings if we moved on from this guy. Good player brought in to help us win a SB. Mission accomplished. Huge salary off the books. Onward and upward BroncNation.

    Slap on the wrist for the league office’s current “it” team.

    You do you, Talib!

    Repeat offender amazingly admits to intentionally committing a major facemask, a dangerous on-field action: fine, no suspension

    Player with a clean record maybe but not likely had general awareness of a minor cheating scheme involving football inflation that probably didn’t actually occur: fines, lost draft picks, suspension, and fight tooth-and-nail to get the suspension renewed after it was overturned on appeal

    Only in the NFL…

  14. p6one6 says: Feb 12, 2016 4:40 PM

    On the most watched game of the year for the NFL, Talib intentionally grabbed and pulled the facemask with quite a bit of force. In the worst case scenario, he breaks the guy’s neck and you have the world watch someone die on the field. No suspension, small fine.

    To put this in perspective, Marshawn Lynch was fined nearly triple the amount for not talking to the media. The Patriots were fined 38 times the amount and docked a first round draft pick for not “fully cooperating” with the Deflategate investigation when they said they had enough of the repetitive interviews with the same people.

    If you have ever wondered how much the NFL cares about the players, this is all you need to know. The NFL only cares about money, it could care less about the actual sport.

    “The facemasking foul was especially egregious, and Talib admitted after the game that he did it on purpose, figuring that since the penalty was at the 3-yard line, the half the distance to the goal line penalty wouldn’t be a big deal.”

    So he broke the rules in order to gain a competitive advantage? We call that cheating, right? This happens a lot, I imagine. What doesn’t happen a lot is the player admitting that he did it deliberately. Maybe the league decided not to suspend him because they admire his honesty.

    Wasn’t the appellate court supposed to review the Brady decision last week?

    Fifty year Broncos fan here, I’m disgusted by Talib’s actions in Detroit and at the SB. Personally, the league should have taken his entire playoff paycheck, AND confiscate his championship ring for two years right after the award ceremony later this year.

    Finally, if I was Elway he’d be traded, letting everyone else on the team know that dangerous stupidity equals a ticket out-of-town.

  18. GoodellMustGo says: Feb 12, 2016 4:50 PM

    And then next season some other guy does what Talib does and gets a fine of $21,493. And 94 cents.

    Makes perfect sense right?

    The first penalty against Talib was BS because Brown was the one opening his mouth, but the second penalty deserved an ejection.

  23. eslaught says: Feb 12, 2016 4:55 PM

    I called it. The NFL punishment system is screwed up. You get crucified for not talking to the media, but admitting to trying to rip a guy’s face off, gets a small fine.

  24. broncoboogie says: Feb 12, 2016 4:58 PM

    Who cares we world champs I kinda liked that play,you can’t pick a fight then say but don’t hit me so hard,and it sent a message to the panthers that we didn’t come hear to dance and dab we came to fight,it was enough bang for that buck…I’ve seen worse.

  25. pskotte says: Feb 12, 2016 5:00 PM

  32. ricko1112 says: Feb 12, 2016 5:29 PM

    Because of Manning and Elway, the Broncos are bulletproof. Manning uses HGH and nothing happens. His buddy, Bill Polian, said that tampering with footballs was just as egregious as using PEDS. Well, turns out the footballs weren’t tampered with, but what does ol “Change the Rules” Bill have to say now?

    Denver is the dirtiest team in NFL history! Manipulation of the refs and review process throughout the playoffs! Can you imagine if a replay official in last year’s SB was a rabid NE fan? The entire game game this year turned on that blown call, when Crochety caught the ball, but it was ruled a non catch. Blandino ordering the ref not to reverse the call.

    Hang in there fans of integrity and fairness. I bet if someone in the league office looks around there’s probably video of the play and Goodell will claim he never saw it. Then he’ll double Talib’s fine to a whopping $52,000. Yeah, right.

  37. patsbrat says: Feb 12, 2016 6:05 PM

    $6,044 was for the personal fouls. The other $20K is for just being a punk.

  38. Kaz says: Feb 12, 2016 6:12 PM

    If he was a Bengal or that was against Steelers he would face suspension. Bad enough he’s a repeat offender who only got 1 game for his first suspension. Not 3 like Burfict. League lacks credibility.

Let’s say Cotchery caught the ball… who’s to say that the next play Von doesn’t strip sack Newton AGAIN??… HOW DO YOU KNOW the rest of the game turned on that one call??? I think Cam getting knocked around and turning the ball over 3x as well as getting sacked 6x, hit 13x…. that didn’t have an impact on the game?… yet 1 blown call did?

  40. 2ndaryinsanity says: Feb 12, 2016 6:21 PM

    What’s the big deal? This is just more logic courtesy of Roger Goodell. I mean, why on earth would you fine and suspend a repeat offender who admits to purposely trying to detach someone’s head from the rest of their body. I mean, it’s not like violent face masks are dangerous or anything. Now, if a player admits to committing a penalty so dangerous it could paralyze or kill someone, that would be a different story. Oh, wait a minute…..

  42. rootpain says: Feb 12, 2016 6:22 PM

    What a joke. Time Magazine should do a rewrite on Goodell calling him The Enabler. If ever there was a time for a suspension it was after that game. Disgusting penalty. And did it consciously and bragged about it. Goodell is a loser.

  43. nfl1818 says: Feb 12, 2016 6:23 PM

    Denver was downright nasty on defense.

    Truth be told the penalties didn’t hurt them and set a tone.

    My only objection is all the crass chatter after the game.

  44. 6ball says: Feb 12, 2016 6:27 PM

    Talib got .013707% of Tom Brady’s framegate fine which definitely protects the integrity of the game.

    On September 17, 2004, the league announced that, for the second time in three years, the Denver Broncos were fined nearly a million dollars and would, once again, lose their third-round draft pick because of salary cap violations between 1996 and 1998.

    Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis contended that the Broncos’ circumvention of the salary cap helped them win the Super Bowl in the 1997 and 1998 seasons

    In the past decade, the Denver Broncos have had — by far — the most players suspended for PED usage. Each player (except Gardener, who was listed in a BALCO document) was suspended for between four and six games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Welker’s suspension was later reduced.

    League sources said that linebacker Von Miller unsuccessfully attempted to corrupt the NFL’s drug-testing program with the help of a urine collector before each was caught. Miller originally received a four game suspension, but when he appealed, this information was discovered and it was increased to six games.

    Hit me with the thumbs down if you want, but I personally see nothing majorly wrong with the play.

    Grab a player in the end zone, stop him from catching a TD pass, admit later it was intentional and be cheered for a heads up play.

    Granted grabbing a face mask is much more dangerous, but it really isn’t all that much different penalty wise. You still stop the TD, you still admit to breaking the rules.

    That said, the fine is a pittance compared to a players salary not to mention any contract incentives that come along with winning the Super Bowl. I can pretty much guarantee Talib would gladly pay that fine X 10 than to lose the Super Bowl!

    Talib just happened to be the player in question. I can also pretty much guarantee that any player from any other team in the exact same circumstance would do the exact same thing!

    Games do turn on a single play, or call. If Gostkowsi would have made the 1st extra point in the Championship game, NE wouldn’t have had to try those 2 point conversions. The ending would have been different.

    We were never in the AFCC game at all despite the final score. We were only able to score when the Broncos didn’t jump on the fumble and Gronk had success in the 4th quarter when their starting safeties went out. Otherwise the score would have looked like the SB final score or even lower.

    All these Denver fans saying no big deal are probably the same ones that wanted Amendola put in front of a firing squad.

    Remember how everyone said that play only cost the Pats a yard and the rule needs to be changed to really punish the violent nature of the penalty?

    Well the facemask only counted for a yard but the “Danny Kanell” message was sent.

    Congrats to Denver. They played well enough to win, no doubt about it.

    just so sick of the inconsistent and arbitrary nature of Roger’s punishment.

  71. nmmargie says: Feb 12, 2016 9:42 PM

    Man, I want to be the NFL Commissioner. Talib would be ejected from the game and suspended until I felt like un-suspending him. Yeah, I would pressure the local police to file charges for attempted and pre-meditated murder or whatever they can get Talib on. Then I would sit in court and hiss every time the jerk opened his ugly mouth. And I am a Broncos fan. The Broncos, the league, and the world do not need guys like Talib thinking they can get away with anything.

    This is a Public Relations fine, not a deterrent to Talib. The NFL wants to look like they are doing something while knowing that this actions does nothing to stop Talib from headhunting again.

  75. mmack66 says: Feb 12, 2016 10:22 PM

    So, potentially blinding a guy and potentially breaking the neck of a guy isn’t enough of a pattern of conduct detrimental to the integrity of the game for Goodellbot to suspend Talib?

    He threw the book at Tom Brady, who had never done anything wrong his whole career. He didn’t even give the guy the benefit of the doubt, even after the bozos in his own office admitted that they didn’t consider that temperature can affect the air pressure inside of a football.

    Admitting to tackling by grabbing nothing but the face mask. Like someone who was defending that action said “it was money well spent. Had it been in the end zone and he admitted it he would have been congratulated for a smart play”. Well had it been on the 30 or 40 yard line and Brown was blowing by him, as he did to the Arizona safety, I could understand that but doing it 3 yards from the goal line, I don’t think risking breaking someone’s neck was a smart play at all and a veteran like Talib is, he used bad judgement. Yes it resulted in a penalty of 1.5 yards. As good as that defense is, keeping a running team out of the end zone on 3 straight plays from the 1 1/2 yard line is a stretch, especially since Stewart could have scored from the 3 or 4 with that leap and air time he had. What it boils down to is in a era when the NFL is supposed to be cracking down and improving the safety of the players, they completely missed a opportunity to enforce that trend. Instead you take a repeat offender, slap him on the wrist with a fine and crawled back into their New York City league office hole like a groundhog seeing his shadow. This Roger guy is a spineless excuse of a man….

    Aqib is a good kid, just like Vontaze Burfict.
    Give him a hug and let him play.

    Now he has his ring, and can keep up his antics.

    The Broncs incurred several times in fines what the Pants got in SBL, and they skonked them 24-10. Maybe their onto something here.

    LOL at all of the patriot fans peeing down their leg because they will face this D in Denver again next year

    Denver barely beat NE 2x this year with no o-line.

    Once Manning leaves the Goodell protections factor goes with him. Can’t wait to ride the little ponies next year.

    If the NFL wanted curb on field violence they would suspend players. The teams and coaches don’t care if a player gets fined

    If he was a Bengal or that was against Steelers he would face suspension. Bad enough he’s a repeat offender who only got 1 game for his first suspension. Not 3 like Burfict. League lacks credibility.”

    LOL u bungles fans are funny, burfict was found to be intentionally twisting players ankles after plays MULTIPLE TIMES. There’s a reason he was skipped over for SEVEN rounds in the draft, while being a first round talent….how does that happen bungles? Right only class acts for u!! Ur a joke bro

    Roger needs to practice his dart throwing skills more. He obviously can’t hit the target labeled “appropriate fine”.

    Each and every day the NFL gets tougher and tougher to tolerate with their incompetent leaders in the front office and the me-first attitude of so many players with a complete lack of respect for the integrity of the game. Guess that’s what you get when you mox a bunch of greedy bastards with a bunch of uneducated idiots on the field (not all of them, but too many to tolerate).

    Goodell is laughing all the way to the bank. Paid 44 mil a year to be the face that takes all the heat and hate from fans while the true decision makers (ie Jurrah, Rooney and Mara) run the show and the league micro manages everything from the ever changing rules to outcomes of games. It’s not Roger’s fault, he’s just the errand boy paid very well to take the heat.

    I keep trying to see Goodell as trying to do the right thing……..I’ve given up!

    Disgusting player. I’m so glad he’s not with the Redskins. We only sign class acts.

    at the time of the ‘face mask /flip tackle’ at the goal line i immediately thought:… it was clearly intentional ,and either he just broke that runner’s neck and killed him,or we are going to see him carried off the field in a neck brace and backboard……and i thought ejection at the time too….but no suspension after admitting his intent?….incredible!!!….

    Talib is habitually in trouble. So glad Tampa got rid of him.
