Over the course of a 17 game schedule, the National Football League is riddled with fines, and on Monday, the league announced the specifics of various infractions.
The most steep violation involves fighting which, for first time offenders, is $28,940 and for second time offenders is $57,881.
Think about it, those fines are about as much as some people earn in an entire year and show just how ridiculous the incomes these players receive are.
The list covers many different fines, some easy to understand, some not, and highlights the long list of things that could go wrong during a 60 minute contest.
I understand its petty cash for many of these players, but c’mon man, who wants to give up that type of cash? Certainly not me.
