Default Broncos' Von Miller, Kevin Vickerson fined by NFL

Broncos' Von Miller, Kevin Vickerson fined by NFL

Excerpts...

Now it's toward the end of the game. Miller was on a pass rush, got knocked to the ground, crawled and wrapped his arms around quarterback Cam Newton's legs near the ankles. Another Broncos players hit Newton high, but Miller got the penalty for roughing the passer.

Not only did Miller get penalized for hitting below the quarterback's knees, but the league fined him $21,000 Thursday. Miller said he will appeal.

"How am I supposed to know if he threw the ball or not?" Miller said. "I was down on the ground — actually the guard facemasked me and threw me into the quarterback. I'm supposed to what? Stand straight up and continue with the tackle?"


Another Broncos defensive player, Kevin Vickerson, was fined $15,000 for his horsecollar penalty while sacking Newton.

Ok wow.

Any fine of that amount should only be given when there is 'clear intent to injure'.

This is sad.

That is called stealing and an abuse of power. The NFL has lost their minds with these fines. Von did absolutely nothing wrong. Do they expect him to just quit on the play?

When did penalties stop being enough onplays where there was no obvious intent to injure or play outside the rules?

What's next Goodell?

Just the league collecting their usual fees. It's like the saying goes, there are only 2 things you have to do, die and pay taxes. For NFL players it's 3 (Death, Taxes and NFL fines).

This is a reaction to 4 starting qb's getting knocked out of the game last week. Apparently all defenders must be stopped.

He didn't dive at the legs. Is he supposed to quit on the playbecause a OL took him to the ground? It wasn't dirty or cheap.
