Ok, we just found out yesterday that Nate B. was fined $7,500.00 for a face mask penalty. Now I am not making this post to continue that conversation. We have a nice run of comments going on in Sean's thread. What I want to ask my fellow PODers, how long before the NFL starts fining the Detroit lions TEAM?
I remember reading somewhere that the NFL would start fining teams, beyond player fines,for actions on the field that are deliberate, negligent or consistently appearing to be out of control. I think it is safe to believe that the league thinks the Lions are a penalty target and it is also safe to think the league has mandated increased scrutiny against the Lions. So my question is....
When do you think we will see a team fine happen against the Lions for our players actions on the field?
p.s. Yes, I realize in order for this to likely happen, our players would probably have to keep up with the stupid penalties. I am not advocating that course of action. I am merely saying, under the microscope we are being viewed with now, penalties are more than likely going to pile on no matter how smart we are in these next few games.
