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

My dad is an Army vet and worked for 50 years in mills. He makes $24,000 a YEAR on retirement alone, and he never tried to concuss/paralyze anybody in his life.

fug Conte. Serves him right.

Man..I personally believe that ALL sport athletes are overpaid. He should only be making 5k a game to begin with. Doctors and teachers should make more than them in my opinion.

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

They are fined a comical amount bc they make a comical amount.....

Can't compare it to John Doe working next door.....

NFL players, even bad ones, make so much money only a comical fine has influence.

First off Thanks to your dad for his service... And I totally understand what you're saying. I'm not an advocate for the rich as I am currently serving in the military. What I'm saying is that the punishment should fit the crime.... Yes, the player knows the rules and broke them. He should be punished, but I think this is a classic case where the NFL is doing more harm than good. I also feel bad for LaFell and our team possibly having to play without him... It's a double edged sword man. I see both sides of it.

Conte's NFL pay this year is 608,400....

Does anyone realize what percentage of his 2012 money he actually lost.....when he used his body as a weapon by NFL rules? Silly to be upset of that...

Problem I have....the guys making big money....that fine is peanuts. That's why I agree it should be a percentage of the game check. Would make the consequences equal for all.....and more meaningful for those with very big paychecks.
