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.

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.

    • We always seem to hold him in check. He would have been a better fit here honestly.
    • There was a rash of this sort of activity 10 or 15 years ago where several dozen kids entered retail stores and just took whatever they wanted for a couple of minutes and then scrammed before the police could arrive. These types of crimes are going to be coming to an end in the near future with the increasing number of cameras and improvement of biometrics.   Not only will we be able to identify the perps, it might be able to determine their intent prior to them being able to carry out their crimes. face-and-read-your-mind
