    I'm pretty sure Dillion won't mind the fine considering he was dancing on the bungles---in fact he may even pay wtson's fine:cool:

    Oh I know for a fact CD and BW are just gonna laugh it off, but the idea... the idea is so pathetic. You're gonna fine somebody for playing a game? What's next? Profanity on the field?

    No Fun League

    Have to imagine Kraft will be reimbursing Dillon and Watson for the fines.

    worth every penny. The Pats seem to save it up for the c0ckier teams, I really dig it.

    This is almost as ridiculous as Florio on PFT campaigning for criminal charges to be filed against Haynesworth for the incident last weekend.

    They don't understand the euphoria a player gets when in the game. It's hard to control when you're all pumped and hyped and things are going your way and you just let your emotions explode.

    For Dillon it is 5k well spent, after all the crap he took in Cincinnati coming back with a win like that is chump change.. do not remember the Watson incident well. I do not have a problem with end zone celebrations, taunting the other team is another issue though.

    What an absurd fine! Sure it warranted a penalty - but a fine?

    I keep going back to this, Cincy's Robert Geather's clocked the crap out of Trent Green as he was sliding feet first - no penalty, no fine. The league needs to get consistent on its enforcement.

    And what about Cinci's
    Kaesviharn's hit on Caldwell...THAt was dangerous and yet..nothing at all.
    I think that is plainly absurd..wait until a player gets patalyed and then..do something when it is too late?? I agree way ridiculous...

    Watson's fine was in doing the Dillon dance which is what turned the dance into a penalty, it became "joint celebration". Had it just been Dillon alone, nothing would've happened.

    If it happened uiin Canada,,it may have led to charges...as have a few other incidents in the NHL. NOT ridicuous at all..I wouldn't go that far to prosecute..but to say it is ridiculous is just dumb. WHat Haynesworth did had nothing to do with football..it was an assualt..and the NFL needs to deal with that as they have..strongly. If they fail to, certainly some prosecutor will do that...and I do NOT think the NFL wishes to open that door.
