    Good to hear that at least something is being done about that.

    At the same time is $25k enough considering that Nalen's calculated move gave the Broncos a decent shot at a win?

    If the Broncos ended up winning that game I'm sure they would have been happy to cover the fine on his behalf and pay him a bonus on top of it.

    What great news. I'm sick to death of the Broncos and their cheap shots...it's awesome that some notice was taken as to exactly WHY Olshanksy was throwing a punch...it sure wasn't unprovoked.

    It's good but those guys need to start getting 15 yard unnecessary roughness penalties.

    Hurrah!
    I've been afraid that the league would just take Madden's old-offensive-lineman's attitude: that's just fine, it happens all the time.

    Hooray !!!

    The Shanhan & Gibbs dirty and dangerous chop blocking that they teach ought to a) draw steady 15 yards and b) gasme ejection fouls. It would stop real quick! Also autoamatic $25k fines would help. How about imposing them on the Caoches who condone this crap?

    Its long past time that the league cracked down on a blocking scheme that Shanahan won't allow to be used in practice with his own palyers, as its so dangerous and would likely wipe out his DLine in short order. But he employs it in games against opponents!

    should have suspended him for a game if they really wanted to send a message.

    Denver will quietly pay the fine for him and Nalen wont miss a penny.

    Agreed that a one game suspension (would also have resulted in loss of a game check, which would be more than $25K) was definitely in order.

    But I'm very pleased that he WAS fined, and that the fine was more than Olshansky's.

    I think the only thing Olshansky should be punished for is punching Nalen in the Helmet. The team can't afford to suffer the loss of a Defensive lineman out with a broken hand. You gotta go for a body punch or a chop to the throat in that situation Igor.

    An ear hole or a neck shot should do the trick to a dirty b!tch like Nalen...
