    Should've been a stiffer fine. At least NFL did something.

    He growls as he storms the country,
    A villain big and bold.
    And the trees all shake and quiver and quake,
    As he robs them of their gold.

    How can you say the NFL got this one right when Gore was suspended $500 MORE for wearing ****ing socks too low?

    ^ Just because they gave Gore a stupidly excessive fine doesn't mean they should over-fine Brady too. Why complain about Brady's reasonable fine because of a comparison to an excessive one?

    Too little. Gore was fine more than that just for his socks. And since there is no way to get "street justice" on a QB these days, whenever a QB does something that could potentially injure someone, the fines should be far more than what another player would be fined.

    Make it $20K with $10K going to the NFL's legal defense fund.

    $500? I heard it was $5000 more.

    It's not the offense that has some people's panties in a knot, it's the fact it was Brady and, to a lesser extent, Reed. If it were two special teamers involved, no one would care about the incident or the fine.

    Gore was fined $10,500 for wearing his socks too low.
