    Vikings' Jared Allen fined $21,000

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Jared Allen's hit on Lance Louis knocked the Chicago Bears guard out for the rest of the season and earned the Minnesota Vikings defensive end plenty of scorn from his division rivals.

    It also earned him a fine from the NFL
    Allen was fined $21,000 for the hit on Wednesday, according to a person with knowledge of the punishment who spoke on condition of anonymity because the league had not announced the fine.

    Allen hit Louis with a block after an interception by Antoine Winfield. Louis didn't see Allen coming, and his leg stuck in the turf on the hit and tore the ACL in his left knee. Several Bears, including coach Lovie Smith, said they thought the hit was unnecessary and dirty.

    "We have an injured player right now based on it," Smith said this week. "I think he could have gotten blocked a little bit differently, but that's about all I can probably say about it."

    Allen was unavailable for comment on Wednesday, but said after the game he never intended to injure Louis.

    "I never, ever try to intentionally hurt anybody," Allen said after the 28-10 loss to the Bears. "Just trying to make a block and spring our guys down sidelines. That's unfortunate."

    Some wondered if the hit would earn Allen a suspension, but he's never had the reputation as a dirty player and has earned admiration across the league for his charitable work with wounded veterans. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he had great respect for Allen, both as a player and a person.

    "I just think personally I have a lot of respect for him as I've got to know him," Rodgers said. "I appreciate not only the way he plays on the field, and he plays hard and between the whistles, but especially the stuff that he does off the field with his foundation for the Wounded Warriors, that's just a very classy thing."

    Hahahahahahahahahaha this is great


    You can cover a turd in sugar but in the end you'll still have a turd... Or you'll have a typical Marc Trestman press conference describing his pathetic team.

    I don't really understand how Suh's little vagina kick net's $30,000, but Allen intentionally trying to murder someone nets only $21,000

    I know he has previous offenses, but geesh.

    I think Jared Allen Just gets frustrated when hes playing a horrible game. Hopefully hell bounce back for the packers and extend our lead by another game. (as long as we beat the seahawks)

    I'm a bears fan and I have to say, some of the comments I have seen from my fellow fans have been true hyperbole. It was unfortunate Lance Louis' cleat stuck in the ground, tearing up his ACL. But the truth is, the play was still live and Louis should have been more aware of his surroundings. Saying that Allen is dirty and was trying to hurt Louis intentionally is ridiculous. Football is a violent sport. It's not like he chop-blocked him.

    Had his cleat not become stuck and Louis not injured, I don't think this play would've even gotten reviewed by the NFL, let alone a fine be levied.

    All I'll say because I don't want HOWE deleting my posting is.

    It wasn't even close to enough. Suh gets fined $30,00 for what looked like he mayhave done intentionally, but no one can be 100% except him and Allen gets a fined $21,000 for a hit that was 100% illegal. Allen may not have intended to try to take Louis out but that is what happen.
