New England Spygate DT Vince Wilfolk gets off Easy with Fine

EyE gouging incident yields Wilfolk only a fine, indicating the NFL's favored position towards the Patriots. Look for the Cheatriots to win the Super Bowl with help from the referees if necessary.
We're amazed -- amazed -- that Pats defensive
tackle Vince Wilfork was fined only $15,000 for treating Giants running back
Brandon Jacobs like he'd just said "nyuk, nyuk, nyuk."
Wilfork jammed his stubby finger into
Jacobs' eye!
Sure, Jacobs wasn't hurt.  But the act
was still heinous.  If the officials had seen it, he surely would have
been ejected.  So why wasn't he suspended?
And given that it was Wilfork's third fine of
the year for on-field misbehavior, we think that he at least should have
been fined far more than $15,000.
Finally, a reader has made a great suggestion. 
Why not base these fines on a percentage of the player's annual salary? 
As it now stands, these penalties affect players of different income levels
differently.  The goal, however, should be to create a deterrent effect
that is consistent.  The best way to do that is to take away a specific
portion of the player's pay.

Nominees for 2007 Sports Board/Blog Post of 2007

Mother Corporate board that is.

Well, I was unusually restless tonite, so I

  clipped this post from the mother corporate board to my blogger using this Clipmark add-on that integrates with my blog.  A big time saver. You can even use it with video clips, Facebook and to multiple blogs, e mail etc. Plays nice with my Mozilla Firefox browser.  **tip

Anyway, if you'd like to nominate your own, have at it and have fun.  Panthers, Falcons and Saints fans invited too, even Nascar!  biggrin.gif

The other funny part I guess is that the thread started in August starts out by saying how bad Gruden and the Bucs will suck this year.

2007 Sports Board post of the year

I clipped this from the transsexual, cross dressing corporate board. Not that there is anything wrong with that...but this was really good. Yes, I'm turning lemons into lemonade.
