    I was expecting worse. Ed Reed better get at least this much for his two hits.

    confirmed?

    anyways, moving on....I stated earlier that the BIlls is a big game, I think the guys will give that little bit extra for thier coach this week.

    No big deal needs to be made of this by Wilfork, Brady etc, they need a good week of practice.

    Moving on....

    what a joke, The refs completely ignored him after the kick, and they showed ZERO accountability.

    They entire ref squad from the game should be banned forever. You cant just run and hide after the worst officiated game in history, and not even give the head coach of the team you screwed an explanation.

    Expected and fair. Though Harbaugh should have gotten a fine as well.

    Locked-out NFL referees could return as early as this week -- sources - ESPN

    Agreed! On to Buffalo, get a win.

    Less than I thought it would be and, assuming Harbaugh is fined similarly for bumping an official, fair; players, coaches, officials, cheerleaders, reporters, team staff, whoever...all have to be have a reasonable expectation that they will not have unwanted intrusions on their physical "space" outside of legit game contact when they walk onto an NFL field or sideline. It was clear from his immediate reaction in the video clip and his comments the next day that BB knew he had made a mistake.

    However, unlike during Spygate, I'll bet this time a few of his fellow HC's would like to be able to chip in to help pay it.

    I have to say that if [the theorized] Belichick's suspension cost us more games on top of what the refs cost us, I'd have been apoplectic.

    I was thinkin more like 75 grand to one hundred knowin Goodell.
    From what I understand Harbaugh isn't bein fined for bump saying refs missed it and wasn't on film.

    No surprises here. Other coaches got 25-30K for yelling at the refs...so i knew Bill would get slapped a little harder...I thought it would be closer to 100K to be honest. He's a rich man....time to move on. I know I won't lose sleep over it.

    My primary concern here is the fact that when you heard about the memo you almost knew that the Pats would get effed in the a to the point that BB would blow his top, and end up being one of the first coaches fined despite being much better behaved over all than most. While this fine was deserved it's going to do nothing to stop the issue with most coaches abusing the replacement officials after almost every snap.

    And neither is Bill. He said that he shouldn't be fined but if he is he would pay it and respect decision and move on. On to Buffalo, Get a Win!

    All the ref had to say to BB was " the kick is not reviewable" ... game over.

    The second rate hack ran off with his tail between his legs rather than answer a legit question. I'm thinking one of the regular refs would have stood and told BB that fact. The replacement probably didn't know it wasn't.

    Get this lockout settled now...PLEASE

    I agree that 50k is nothing to Belichick, but what it does is just add insult to injury.

    If he was suspended that adds insult to injury.

    Mazz is probably in a fetal position, sobbing, and sucking his thumb because BB did not get suspended like baseball people do.

    note to BB: Next time you want clarification from an official in a crowded stadium, scream obscenities at the top of your lungs....it's a lot cheaper.:cool:

    Bottom line is that if BB never touched the ref, he never would have been fined.

    However....

    If the refs hadn't called such a pathetically, putrid game and not had the guts to stand and talk to BB like a regular official would have, he never would have needed to write the check.

    The real injustice is that Harbaugh wasn't fined a single cent even though it was his incessant bullying of the officials from the first flag on that caused them to start brandishing flags like it was the 4th of July. Wasn't there supposed to be a memo sent to all coaches saying to lay off the refs? Wasn't Harbaugh flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct while berating refs? He should have been fined the heaviest to send a message regarding the bully tactics.
