    $7,500 is the fine Marshall was assessed by the NFL for throwing snow into the air to celebrate a touchdown catch against the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 9.

    $5,000 is the fine Broncos safety Nick Ferguson was assessed for a low hit on a special-teams play in the loss to the Bears that the league termed "unnecessary roughness."

    $0is the fine Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens was assessed for dumping popcorn on himself after a touchdown catch this season.

    Always great to see Goodell focused on the important problems in the NFL. First a player celebrates with snow. The next thing you know, they'll be dumping Gatorade on coaches after winning big games. I mean, where does this 'celebrating' insanity end?

    We desperately need to start an emailing campaign to Godell and as many No Fun League bozos as possible and develop a cc: mailing list that includes all these worthless med-iadiots that dont stand up to this moron that is ruining the league.


    IT IS A FREAKIN GAME. LET Some folks have some freakin fun.

    and the inconsistent and hypocritical enforcement of rules on some players and not on others (whether in fines or in-game penalties because of some special 'area of emphasis') has GOT TO STOP.

    WOW, glad Goodell was not at the Pats game Sunday, sure would have slowed the commute home with all those NFL security guys collecting throwing snow fines from the fans.

    Jeez. God damned Godell.

    What next, ask players to play in business suits because it looks more professional? Fine players for jumping after a touchdown, sack, catch?

    This is pathetic.:mad:

    I have one question...

    After Tag resigned, who put the anal-retentive Goodell up as a serious and viable candidate?

    p.s. Marshall has really turned into something huh? 4th round pick in '06...guys like him, Marques Colston, and Greg Jennings are going to lead to the downfall of the first-round reciever
