Bell fined $7,500 for face-mask penalty
Following Wednesday’s practice, RT Byron Bell returned to his locker, discovering a letter from the NFL. He was shocked by the content. For a face-mask penalty in the first quarter against the Redskins, Bell was fined $7,500. “How am I going to pay it?” Bell joked with a teammate.

I was surprised they called it to begin with since he let go almost immediately. Wow.

I can understand a flag, but a fine is ridiculous.

He should pay it in nickles.

20 nickles per dollar makes for 150,000 nickles.
@ 5 grams per nickle that's 750,000 grams or 750kg.
750kg is 1653lbs

1,653 pounds of nickles.

It was a blatant facemask, but surprised at the fine.

Goodell's fines are getting out-of-hand.

That's a stupid fine. So now in addition to penalties on the field you get them off the field? The stern hand of Roger Godell is getting out of hand.

7K is a big portion of a game check for a player making (presumably) the rookie minimum especially one who given his family situation probebly wants to send as much money back home as possible.

It was definitely a penalty. I wonder if some of you even watched the play. He had to hold him or it was a sack so he grabbed his face mask. Why he was fined I have no clue.

It was a bad penalty but just a penalty. When did they start handing out fines for face masks?

This is getting so ridiculous. It's football. Back in the day, they didn't even have face masks. Get over the pussy sh*t and let them play the game.

Yea in the fact he does not fine people for cheap shots but then fines people for just accidents. Its fuging ridiculous, and how about fining the Refs when they fug up?
