On Monday night, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman applied a cheap shot to Saints receiver Kenny Stills.
The officials didn’t miss it. The league office didn’t, either.
According to Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Sherman was fined $7,875 for the blow to Stills.
But Stills had no problem with the hit, and he doesn’t think Sherman should have been fined.
“I don’t think it deserves a fine,” Stills said. “We had just been talking trash to one another, and I guess he saw an opportunity to take a shot. It’s football. You’re going to get hit. . . . I didn’t take any offense to it. I think it’s funny.”
But the league didn’t, and the victim of the illegal hit has no say in the discipline.
