John Clayton on NFL Live just said LaFell was Doubtful for Sunday. Sounds like Gettis might be getting activated

I personally think its fugged up to fine someone that much money when they make that little to begin with. He made 5 G's compared to the 26 he should have.

The NFL needs to fix the fines, and help out the players who don't make as much.

To be clear, he should have been fined, but I completely disagree with the amt

I agree. Fines should be based on percentages of a game check

Not the point... It's not fair to fine someone 4/5 of their check (80%)

Say you mess up at work, or miss a deadline... Lets see how'd you feel about it then tough guy

How about learning to tackle legally? I thought it would be a 25k fine when I saw it...pretty vicious hit and could've been avoided while still making the tackle. if you start doing fines based on percentages, you'd get a bunch of scrub players out there just to take somebody out.
