Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters has a $15,000 fine to go along with his 15-yard penalty.

In last weekend’s win over the Titans, Peters celebrated an interception by leading a group celebration that included stomping on the Titans’ logo, drawing a 15-yard penalty. He also has been fined $15,000, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said this week that although he didn’t like the 15-yard penalty, he loves the passion Peters brings to Baltimore.

I love him. He’s genuine. He’s as authentic as it gets. And that’s what you appreciate about anybody, especially someone like Marcus,” Harbaugh said of Peters. “Just from a coach’s standpoint, I’m not a big fan of the penalties. We talk about that all the time. We never want to hurt our team and put them in a position, put them 15-yards back unnecessarily. So that’s the main thing that we talk about.”

The $15,000 is harsh, considering that the league routinely fines players less than that for cheap shots and dangerous hits. And the Ravens will gladly take the energy Peters brings to their defense.

  1. Let me get this straight. The Ravens were upset about the Titans stomping on the Ravens’ logo was disrespectful and thought it was wrong. They turn around and do the same thing and now all of a sudden it’s OK. It’s the Ravens though. I’m not surprised. They have zero class from the top of the organization on down.

    As AGREED TO by the NFLPA. The SET fine is collectively bargained by the players. The NFL cannot raise or lower the fine or they’ll violate the CBA and they you’ll get on your high horse about how the league is ignoring the CBA.

  3. The Titans did no stomping. They gathered pregame at midfield like they do every game, which so happens to be the location of the logo. That’s it. That’s all they did. And whiny Harbaugh got all butt hurt about it. No other team all year even noticed it because it’s nothing. Whatever though, Ravens won the more important game & get to continue their season & the Titans don’t.

  4. The Titans did NOTHING and Harbaugh was whining about it. When his team does its okay.
    Not sure, is Harbugh the most unlikeable coach ever

  5. So Fitz almost has his head removed via facemask, and it’s a $6,000 fine. Dance on a logo, $15,000 fine. Gottit. This league is like the new-age kindergarten. Bullies are ok, but don’t hurt anyone’s feelings.

    That’s… how revenge works. It’s how justice worked for the first 349 of 350 thousand years that humans have existed.

    When people think walking all over a logo was disrespectful, they would naturally return the favor. They wouldn’t run out to the logo, tuck it into bed, and give it a kiss on the forehead to teach the Titans a lesson. They are going to do the same thing right back. Eye for an eye is how early humans handled justice. And its how everyday, normal people still do it on the streets. The ones doing it the first time were the bad guys. And the ones doling it back were giving them their comeuppance. I guess if you are the receiving end of justice, you might get a little salty though.

  7. The Titans always huddle up at mid-field before the game. Harbaugh just got salty because the got owned by the Titans in the playoffs last year. Considering the way the rest of the Ravens acted, so were they.
