:rolleyes:

What's the point of even trying to use loss of game time as a punishment? Seems like the players win every appeal, unless you're a Saint...

A one-game suspension would have cost Goldson in the neighborhood of $265,000.

So he saves $165K by appealing the suspension (not counting legal and agent fees involved). The NFL is nothing short of a total JOKE.

I think Brook's fine is on its way! I suspect $40-50K.

There are no fees associated with an NFL appeal unless it goes to Court like BG.

The Union provides all of that.

So $100,000 from $41.5 million is like about 2 cents for the rest of us. Big whooping deal. Bet that'll teach him not to hit with his head.

He was fined $30k last week for a hit to Cumberland... Fines and suspensions that are over turned DO NOT WORK
