Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is likely to receive a substantial fine for initiating contact with an official during Sunday's win over the Oakland Raiders.

If he's fined even though the Ref corrected himself later by saying that Newton didn't bump him, that would be a travesty.

I think they should just fine him and be done with it. There shouldn't be much of a grey area with touching refs.

The ref even said it was not malicious, and that the penalty was for screaming at him. If they're going to fine him, it should be "for disrespect" or it should be very minor, because it was clearly an accident that he bumped into him.

This guy thinks he could be suspended. I don't see it

http://charlotte.cbs...nty-gate-power/

It has been said that Roger Goodell has lost some of his power after the reversal of the so-called Bounty Gate penalties and Newton’s actions could prove the first real test of the commissioner’s power to levy fines and/or suspensions. Individually the kick and bump would simply draw fines, but because they were done by the same person in the same game Goodell may want to reprise his law and order reputation and tell the young quarterback to sit out the first game of his professional career.

Newton's fine, if there is one, will be miniscule next to Hardy's.

the ref said the bump wasn't malicious, not that he didn't bump into him.

bottom line, you are not to touch intentionally touch the referees...or do too much trash talking.

either way, he'll be fined because he broke the rules. the nfl has never let anything slide when it comes to an infraction against a referee.
