Default NFL fines Tom Brady $10K for slide

The NFL has fined New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady $10,000 for his slide into Ed Reed in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The action taken by the league was first reported by NFL.com.

During the final minute of the first half, Brady slid to the ground at the end of a scramble with his legs raised up. He hit Reed, who was not injured, but the slide angered some on the Ravens sideline, but not Reed.
“I know he’s a great player,” Reed said after the Ravens earned a spot against the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. “I respect Brady and his game for all it stands for, and I know he’s not a dirty player. And emotions get going in the game.”

Reed’s teammate Bernard Pollard was less diplomatic.

“When you slide, obviously, quarterbacks know when they slide, everything is on the ground,” Pollard told USA Today on Monday. “He knew what he was doing … Hopefully, the NFL will do something about it

The Tides are turning for Ravens. All these Years the refs biased against Ravens they helped the Manning brothers Brady and the Steelers. I think what it is because Art Modell died. but the NFL turns the other cheek when Irsay moved the Colts to Indy. But they didnt turn the other cheek when Art Modell moved the Browns to Baltimore.

I saw that and Brady should have got a 15 yarder for that. I'm usually against fines but I approve of this one.

And what about this one?
Ravens' Ed Reed fined $55,000


Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed has been fined $55,000 for his hit on New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz in Sunday's game.

An NFL spokesman confirmed Reed's fine for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area.

Reed will not be suspended, according to a FOX Sports report.

Reed was penalized when he delivered a shoulder blow high to the upper body of the wide receiver.


Last month, Reed had a one-game suspension overturned but still had to pay a $50,000 fine for his hit on Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.


A person familiar with the penalty says the NFL also has fined Panthers quarterback Cam Newton $21,000 for abusive conduct toward a game official.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the league hasn't announced the fine.

Seems to me Ravens players get fined higher then other players in the league. I think Ravens players should go to the ACLU and file a discrimonation suit against the NFL. Even James Harrison dont get that high fine when he uses his head to hit QBs

I don't understand who works out these fines. A player can get fined, lets be honest not very much for a obvious violent play, yet like said before a player who has the wrong shoes or something gets a higher fine
