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.
