Let the boys play, fine 'em for the extra-curricular b.s. and/or kick 'em outta' the league if they don't play well with others, but out-of-bounds hits like Matthews' and Vaccaro's, as well as Suh's block, are in fact plays that occur frequently during any game and should be regulated with penalty flags and/or removal from a game if deemed flagrant/intentional.

A fine to me says, "Hey, I don't want to lose any revenue from fans coming to see you play and your hits that I have deemed illegal in a league that was built on big-hits, but I'll levy this politically-correct punishment in order to appear that I care".

It just seems pointless to me to fine millionaires.

Wow I hardly ever agree with Jim Harbaugh - I think he is a giant asshat.

But Matthews was way out of line.
