Last week, after the league announced that it would only fine cheap-shot artist Vince Wilfork for his latest transgression, I joked that the NFL Plinko Board came up "Fine but no Suspension," because it was the only way to rationalize such a seemingly arbitrary punishment for a chronic offender.
The top sports headlines of the day
And today we learn that more players have been fined for various absurdities and, shockingly, the latest batch are among the most ludicrous of the season. The going rate for intimidating sacks (I crap you not, that's how it was described to the perp)? Five grand if you're Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley. And perfect form tackles on third-string quarterbacks will run you $7,500 if you're Justin Tuck.
Or maybe not; the NFL has rescinded Tuck's fine, presumably because he did nothing wrong. Novel idea, that.
