Another Laughable Fine From The NFLSeptember 13th, 2013
Dashon Goldson won’t stop drilling opponents anytime soon. He told Joe that Wednesday, when Goldson said he was fined a “significant number” by the NFL for drilling Jets receiver Jeff Cumberland. Joe believes that should be a clean hit.
The amount of the fine got out today, and it was $30,000, so reported ProFootballTalk.com.
Joe really finds these fines laughable. That $30k is about .4 percent of Goldson’s annual salary. That’s the numerical equivalent of fining a typical Florida fifth-grade teacher $160 for a belting a kid in the head. But in reality, Goldson’s fine is meaningless cash to him, assuming he’s not in Warren Sapp debt..
If the NFL was really serious about deterring players, then it would have much bigger fines.
Joe’s glad the NFL isn’t fining guys enough to turn the league into true touch football. Hopefully, that won’t ever happen.
