  1. What a joke. If I was fined I’d sue Garrett for his crime of assaulting a person. The referees are the ones who should be fined for their cowardness, as they should have broken up the melee instead of being spectators.

  2. Where does the fine money end up? Lucrative fight for the NFL. 500K just from the teams seems stiff.

  3. chawk; “they clarified that all on-field fines go to the NFL Player Care Foundation—which provides medical, emotional, and financial assistance to retired NFL players—and the NFL Players Association Player Assistance Trust, a fund that helps professional and amateur football players’ families in a crisis.”

  4. Gentlemen welcome to the Browns/Steelers fight club. The first rule is don’t talk about the Browns/Steelers fight club.

  5. 3,500 bucks for entering the fighting area.
    I’d rather be a coward and keep my money than be fined for standing around in the vicinity.

  6. “Where does the fine money end up? Lucrative fight for the NFL”

    None of it goes to the NFL there’s nothing lucrative at all for them in it. All fines go to various NFL charities.

  7. This has been the most overblown story in a long time. We teach our kids to keep their hands to themselves. Reasonable adults know not to go after the guy who just ripped your helmet off like you were a little rag doll. No harm no foul. Reinstate Garrett.

  8. Not a fan of either team but I was pulling for the browns when this season started. Freddie Kitches ruined that. Dirty team. Only way they beat Pitt was with headhunting and personal fouls. Losers.

  9. Glad to see that DeCastro, the only person on that field acting like a mature adult, did not get fined.

    DeCastro seems to have far too much class to be a Steeler.

  10. Imagine how different the Cleveland Browns would be today if they hadn’t fired Bill Belichick.

    Really makes you think.

  11. Still no fine for Damarious Randall, or the for the Browns’ players on the hit to Ju-Ju? Until Mr. Garrett went nuts for a few seconds, those were the most egregious hits in the game.

    —————-
    Then Belichick would have been the coach of Baltimore when Cleveland moved in 96. Nothing would be different for them. Their huge screwup was not keeping Williams as coach last year.

  13. How about we teach our kids when two adults are fighting the first one to use a weapon is the fights loser and a wuss who deserves to stay at home to play with his Dinosaur toys indefinitely?

  14. Um, how did Steelers players who weren’t on the field at the time get the same fine as the Browns players who were on the field for the previous play… So much for punishing the players who ran on the field from the sideline, who further escalated a bad situation. What a joke!

  15. Glad to see DeCastro didn’t get fined. But for him Rudolph AND Garrett might have been seriously hurt and Pouncey might be suspended for the year too.

  16. The one guy that did not get fined VANCE MCDONALD What a punk..he was ON the field during the play and never tried to help his teammates. The video shows him look, and then just walk away. Not on my team, we dont need that apathy

  17. Tomlin is the coach if any to be fined for not controlling his backup qb. He got hit went down and from the get go he started wiggling and kicking and grabbing M G’s helmet and twisting it and kicking some more too. If he would have just got up like a pro qb knows to do NONE of this would have even have happened. But to go back a little farther the coach who called that screen play should be fined the largest amount.

  18. I wonder if the fines come from taxable income and they’ll be paying the IRS for money they spend to pay the fines. The NFL, in theory, will be taxed for receiving the fines as income. I don’t know how it works but I do wonder what the NFL does with money the fines they receive. I bet the NFL has a line item in their budget for money they will receive from fines and fine players with that amount in mind. I think this game alone might have help the NFL to reached their goal. They could use the money to pay referees a full-time salary.

  19. Tribe of One: You are incorrect. Reasonable adults don’t use a helmet as a weapon to hit someone on the top of the head with. Clearly Garrett and you are not reasonable adults.

    How in the world is Rudolph fined 50k and Garrett 45k???

    126 84 Rate This
    ——

    Because Garrett also loses his salary for at least the rest of this year. That makes Garret’s fine more like $2.5M

  22. Theroc, I don’t know why you feel the need to insult a stranger. People like you should stay away from people with helmets in their hand.

    —–

    Um…because Garrett’s penalty was a minimum of 6 games unpaid suspension? Rudolph got zero. So his small fine is infinitely less than 6 game checks with no guarantee it won’t extend into next year. I don’t know what Garrett makes but pretty sure he got a heftier punishment.

    Totally agree with you. Rudolph looked like a child throwing a tantrum hoping someone would come save him. What a coward. He would never do that without people around to rescue him.

  25. How does the NFL arrive at the $3507 total ??
    Seems like an odd total.

    Rematch next week should be interesting…

    Considering Belichick was fired after the original team became the Ravens, I’m not sure it would have mattered.

  27. For all those posting about “windfalls for the NFL” and a “nice Christmas for the commissioner,” all fines collected by the NFL from players goes to charity.

    fine money goes to the NFL Foundation to the NFL Player Care Foundation and the Gene Upshaw Players Association’s Players Assistance Trust.

    Double the fines and I might feel better about this situation.

    Pot must have been getting low…

  30. The NFL once more did not see the biggest culprit was the head official who watched Garett jump on Mason after the ball was long gone and stood by through the entire procedure and finally threw one flag and stood by and did zero. All these players should fight the fines and where is this players union with no response

  31. So the penalty for kicking a opponent in the head with a football cleat, after punching him repeatedly is a 2 game suspension. Let us see if that applies next time a player the NFL doesn’t like,kicks someone in the head with a boot.

    The old Browns became the Baltimore Ravens. They won a SB before BB and Brady started their run.

    Yes, this is the company line, but i don’t believe it.I don’t believe anything the NFL says.

  34. I am by no means condoning what Garrett did. It was inexcusable. But Rudoph isnt some innocent victim either. He escalated the situation and as such should also be punished.
