The NFL Fines Gore but not Brady

I know some here are going to scream about pointing out the double standard (or convince themselves there wasn't one).

However there was. Cam was clearly trying to protect him self from being part of a scrum--while on his back--on the ground with people on top of him. That was his way of getting up, clearing space or stopping the scrum upon him.

Brady on the other hand, threw a kick in anticipation of what he expected (and clearly directed at one guy approaching him--Ed REed), while he was completely isolated and going down on his own.

In other words: Cam's kick was purely defensive. Brady's kick was Offensive (though he or some may argue it was defensive). I would say more preventative, cause nothing had happened to him yet, unlike Cam at the bottom of a pile.

Brady should have been fined.

Do you realize you're talking about the QB the media has set out to tarnish since his days at Auburn because he helped them win their NC? There is no such thing as double standard when it comes to the endless attack on Cam. It's pure intentional.

The NFL is owned by the media. Brady will not be fined. If he is, it will barely be much less than a player with low socks.

Multiple rules.

The Brady Rule - Cant hit a QB low.

The Tuck Rule - Made up a rule on the fly so Brady wouldn't be responsible for a game ending fumble.

Stetson sucks Tom!

This idea that the NFL wouldn't fine Brady simply because he is Brady is naive. What exactly would the Nfl have to worry about by fining him? They wouldn't lose fans, money, or viewership.

Holy crap guys, I don't know man. Are you guys being serious?

They haven't fined Brady yet because IT IS A LOT HARDER TO DECIDE IF HIS ACTION WAS INTENTIONAL OR NOT whereas you can easily see that Gore broke a rule (his socks not meeting the requirement). So of course Brady's fine isn't going to come quick.

Well, all those folks who say the Patriots get special treatment from the league office are feeling a little vindicated right now. Or maybe foolish.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the league has fined quarterback Tom Brady for his Tin Man sans oil can slide, which ended with a Ty Cobb cleating of Ravens safety Ed Reed
