Got To Love Fines For NFL.
As far as NFL fines go, making contact with an official is a pretty good value. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the league fined Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes $2,500 for unnecessary contact with an official. Rhodes was also kicked out of the game. (In Rhodes' defense, the contact was pretty harmless. It appeared he was just trying to get the guy's attention.)Fake throat-slashing gestures, on the other hand, doesn't give you much bang for your buck. Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox was fined $7,500 for making the gesture following an interception last week. His teammate, wideout Eric Decker, was fined $5,000 for a late hit according to the Denver Post.
