    The NFL fines has gotten out of control.

    The economy must be effecting the NFL and they are trying to make up the losses with fines.

    I am a little less upset about the flag now but the $15K is stupid. The zebras had something up there butt in the last game though. They were hitting both sides.

    Last few games it seems like the refs dont like the Titans.

    I think they picture us like as a bully team that hides it.

    Well I thought the celebration may have been a taunt to Matt Asshat Jones. But it seems more fitting a taunt to Roger God-ell :moon2:

    He deserved the flag, he went to the ground. However, the fine is over the top. I would have understood a 2500-5000 fine, but 15K is ridiculous.

    If the NFL wants to be fair about fines, they should do it based on a percentage of that player's salary.

    $15,000 for Jones hurts a lot more than $15,000 for Gage.

    In the Jags/Bengals game a couple weeks ago, John Henderson got mixed up with Bengals OL Andrew Whitworth. As the play ended, Big John ripped Whitworth's helmet off, gripped his face with both hands, and started jabbing his thumbs at Whitworth's eyes....a deliberate attempt to cause serious injury, with a strong possibility of blinding him for life.

    Henderson was fined $10,000.


    Next time BJones scores, instead of celebrating, he should just gouge somebody's eyes out. It would be a lot cheaper.
