Good morning My Fellow Rumbler's,
In case you were wondering, no this isn't the beginning of the new Morning Joe! Series, so I'm sorry to disappoint :). However, I did promise to bring back the series after the season was over, and technically its over but I'll wait until the off season officially begin.
So what's going on?
As most of you may have read already on NFL.Com or ESPN, 49ers S Dashon Goldson said he has paid out over $75,000 in fines in his career. So out of pure intrigue, I wanted to find a source that list the amount of fines that was given out by the league. I came across this website that list ALL of the fines that was paid by players, coaches, teams, GM, owners, referee, and agents since 1986. It's a pretty interesting list so feel free to check it out when you get chance. For those of you, who don't have the time, I will provide you with a brief analysis.
So according to this site, the NFL has given out over $17 million worth of fines, and it's largest ever that was given out was to former 49ers owner Ed Bartolo for $1,000,000. Also, it sucks to be a defensive player, as they are fined double the amount of time as offensive players.
So what do you think Rumblers? I'm curious to get your opinion on these findings.
Have at it!
