    Toe sucking on the Jets sidelines might be a future fine.

    Hmm so this means that the League decided the decision to make the wall came from the top then?

    Re: Jets Fined 100K for tripping incident....

    Since it's a release from the NFL there's no reason to wait for a link:

    The New York Jets were notified today that the club has been fined $100,000 by Commissioner Roger Goodell for violating league rules in the recent incident involving Jets assistant coach Sal Alosi, who placed players in a prohibited area on the sideline to impede an opposing team's special teams players and gain a competitive advantage. This is both a competitive violation as well as a dangerous tactic. The discipline imposed on the club also includes the response to the incident of coach Alosi and special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff, who made public comments accusing other teams of employing similar tactics. Both the NFL Constitution and Bylaws and other league policies require clubs to report actual or suspected violations of competitive rules by other teams only to the league office and not to engage in public criticism of other clubs. The fine has been imposed on the Jets to emphasize that clubs are accountable for the actions of their employees and have the obligation to ensure that all members of their organization comply with league rules.

    No law suit in front of the Supreme Court saying if the other team's coaches are tripping your players, you should get paid damages?

    How about $1m for facilitating the sexual harassment of an employee?

    So not cooperating with the league like Favre = $50K.

    A "dangerous tactic" and "competitive violation" to use the NFL's words is only $100K to the organization.

    What a joke.

    If it's a camera apparently the offense is much more egregious.

    Well, I don't think more proof is needed on this forum, but hopefully other fans will start to recognize what a menace Goodell is to the NFL. The more owners that feel pressure from fans, the better.

    Re: Jets Fined 100K for tripping incident....

    This is all so much bull sh!t.

    Is the severity of punishment weighted by your recent won/loss record or superbowl wins?
    A sliding scale for pathetic organizations.

    I'm not saying what they did was draft pick deduction material, but by these standards neither was videotaping from the wrong position....by a long shot.

    My tinfoil hat side thinks the whole spygate thing was an attempt at restoring parity...and several of my co-workers (non-Pats fans) agree.

    Re: Jets Fined 100K for tripping incident....

    Well I hate to make an argument that supports Goodell and goes against the Pats but we weren't fined for 1 incident or 1 season but something like 5 or 6 seasons of violating Goodell's mandate, which is why the penalty seems so insane compared to others.
