NFL fines Albert Haynesworth $5,000

Are you kidding me? The NFL has fined Albert Haynesworth $5,000 for his tackle against Maurice Jones-Drew in last Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

This is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard in my life. The play shouldn't have drawn a penalty, much less drawn a fine. No other defensive tackle in the league would have gotten a penalty or a fine on that play.

Someone needs to remind Goddell that he is the commissioner of the NFL not the Powder Puff Football League. I guess next time Haynesworth should pick him up and carry him to the sideline.

Of course Godell is the same commissioner who suspended Cowboys' QB coach Wade Wilson for 5 games because he ordered HGH to help with his diabetes, but did not suspend Patriots' coach Bill Belichick for video taping the Jets' defensive signals.
