I knew to avoid it. But like that little mouse eyeing that juicy piece of cheese I couldn’t stop myself.

2014 NFL Fine Schedule

cremebrulee29:
How did NFL come out with a fine like $8,268.00? Like $ 68 tax ?

Close enough to Q&A Wednesday :) and since that was lacking yesterday I’ll answer it publically. In 2011, with the new CBA agreement it contained automatic fines for certain offenses.  In 2011, it was $7500 for taunting. Per the CBA the fines were supposed to increase 5% each year which makes for the odd dollar amounts.  I’ll post the fine schedule for 2014 in a minute.

Peyton Manning fined $8200.00 for taunting.

"I accept it. Money well spent." - Peyton Manning via Chris Mortensen

What a stand up guy. He did something wrong and accepted the consequences.

((Can someone explain to me what the taunting was in detail? Maybe tennesseantraditions?))

Here is a video of it.

Swearinger hit Welker the play before and gave him a concussion. So after the touchdown he basically got in the guys face letting him know he wasn’t happy about it.

The Welker hit/penalty follows the taunting play in the above video.
