The fines that came out of this weekend are amusing. Frank Gore didn't pull his socks up high enough and got a $10,500 fine. Meanwhile, Brady only got $10,000 for trying to bury his cleats in Ed Reed's leg/junk/whatever.
At least Brady got fined. $10,000 is probably an acceptable amount for a first offense, especially from a league which has placed a tremendous amount of emphasis on player safety (including an NFL commercial featuring TOM BRADY specifically addressing player safety. Ironically for Tom, it's also one featuring little Ray Lewis).
I'm just going to ignore the sock thing, that just makes no sense.
