Default Finnegan fined another $5,000

http://blogs.tennessean.com/titans/2...-another-5000/

Another week, another fine for Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan.

The NFL has fined Finnegan $5,000 for an incident involving Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper in Sunday’s 26–20 loss to the Broncos. It’s the same play that prompted Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton to call Finnegan a “dirty” player. Orton accused Finnegan of punching Kuper.

“It’s ridiculous,’’ Orton said. “If that is the type of player Cortland Finnegan wants to be, then he is a cheap player – he is not a good player.’’

Finnegan said he didn’t do anything out of the ordinary against the Broncos, or involving Kuper. Finnegan was not penalized on the play.

"I was just being me,’’ Finnegan said.

Finnegan has now been fined $15,000 over the last three weeks after receiving $5,000 fines in games against the Steelers and Giants.

Is there some sort of system where these guys can get suspended for getting fines like this every week?

Finnegan is halfway through a 4 year deal worth over 16 million dollars.

He makes over 4 million dollars a year, do the NFL really think fining him $5,000 is going to even remotely bother him?

If there is no set system, I think there should be. Being fined 3 weeks in a row really shows what a douchebag moron the guy really is. Being in consecutive weeks the guy should be automatically suspended for a couple games then slap a fine on the coach too. JMHO

I don't disagree with this. I don't know that you should get a couple games for getting fined consecutive weeks, but I'd be down with a one-gamer for two consecutive weeks of fines for the same ****.

I watched that play again now several more times and I think what drew the fine was toward the end, after he jumped into the pile and was trying to wrap his arms around the pile, he grabbed around the back of Kups head, but........he didn't just let go right away. He pulled down on his head with his arm. Not a punch so not a mega dirty play but more of just a punk a$$ play which did deserve a fine.

I think the NFL placing another fine speaks of what type of player he is. Like to see what those Titans' fans now think of their midget.

But Fisher said they play aggressive, not dirty, and if it was dirty, they'd be fined.

Oh... wait a minute...

True - but I also think our LB might get fined for that nice elbow to the helmet. You just know that's what the Titans fans are probably screaming about on their forums.

It's pretty damn revealing you don't know his name.

yeah...

I'm not going to say Finny boy is a clean player but watching the replays on this, I don't think there was much there. If are looking at this objectively, he's really just jumping to the pile and his arm goes across Kupers head as he trys to just grasp or cling to the group of players in the pile. It didn't look like he was throwing a blow to the head or anything malicious. If anything, it looks more like a physical hug........hahahaha. I bet he doesn't even get a fine for that. If he does, it will be a small one. Honestly, this isn't anything at all.
Let's get over it - we're about to see what real physical is next week.

Romo was sort of that type of player but he had a way of doing it during the play. I loved Romo I can't lie.

I'm not sure people in Tennessee know how to use computers, but okay.

Yep, I wish we had a player as nasty as Romo was. He was a dirtbag, but he was our dirtbag.

Romo's schtick was neat when we had an awesome group around him...when you act like that with no talent around you, you just look like a dbag

Romo was a huge a-hole, but he was our huge a-hole. If Cortland Finnegan was a Bronco, i'm sure we'd all support him more than we do now...thats just the way that works.
