I know that the NFL gets some heat for handing out fines for rules that some folks think don’t make a whole lot of sense or are just plain silly. But I, for one, am glad that the league isn’t putting up with any garbage. Next think you know, people will be running around willy-nilly creating subtle, non-intrusive tributes to their murdered friends, and we just can’t have that.
Steelers safety Ryan Clark is the latest guilty party, busted for trying to pay respect to his friend Sean Taylor by radically modifying his uniform. Wait, he did what? And he got fined $5,000? Oh, come on, Goodell.
