    Rams-Panthers Yields Fines Aplenty

    Rams-Panthers yields fines aplenty

    October, 25, 2013
    By Nick Wagoner | ESPN.com

    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- It's no surprise that last week's game between the St. Louis Rams and Carolina Panthers figured prominently when the NFL issued its weekly fines Friday.

    What is more interesting isn't that Rams defensive end Chris Long, receiver Brian Quick, and guard Harvey Dahl were taxed, but more what the league handed out on the Carolina side.

    Long took the heftiest hit to the wallet after he was ejected for throwing a punch during the middle of a third-quarter melee. The league docked him $15,750 for his role in the scuffle. Quick and Dahl received matching $7,875 fines for unnecessary roughness and a late hit, respectively.

    On the other side, however, the Panthers took two fines for players who didn't actually receive penalties for their infractions. Safety Mike Mitchell ($7,875) and receiver Steve Smith ($7.875) received fines for taunting and unnecessary roughness, respectively.

    Mitchell, of course, drew the ire of Dahl and the Rams after he celebrated on the Rams' sideline after he hit Rams quarterback Sam Bradford as he was going out of bounds. The play resulted in Bradford's torn ACL, which will keep him out the rest of the season. Mitchell stood over Bradford after the play with his arms out in celebration, then repeated it moments later after Dahl attempted to get him to vacate the premises. Earlier in the game, Mitchell had offered a similar celebration on the Rams' sideline after a 6-yard catch by tight end Cory Harkey.

    Smith's fine comes as punishment for hitting cornerback Janoris Jenkins in the face while blocking. Jenkins and Smith were in a combative mode all day, and Smith threatened to punch Jenkins if he ever came across him in public.

    Jenkins didn't have much to say on the matter when asked Friday.

    "He’ll be all right," Jenkins said. "No comment on Steve Smith. I don’t care about Steve Smith. Whatever."

    I don't claim to be educated in the NFL rule book, but is this not prima facie evidence that the refs screwed up these non-calls?

    Absolutely. The entire crew should be suspended or fired for letting things get so out of control, and for missing a taunting penalty that was so obvious, Stevie Wonder could have seen it. Those officials were shameful.

    Seems like even their fans are embracing the taunting coming to our site to say they are innocent and we got what we deserved... Ack he should be suspended from commenting for 3 months! Maybe he was related to the refs from that debacle in the Carolinas! Horrifying even for this time of year, trully is a lousey situation we lose our QB to injury on marginal play and the clown celebrates and gets away with it! Those officials should be ashamed and held accountable for that treaste' of a game.

    This calls for a reckoning, wonder if Zorro is available to take a ride on Tonode oh east and look up those corrupt officals. They should be sealed with a big Z on their heads so we can recognize them next time!

    As I mentioned the other day in the 'Balzer: Officials' performance in Rams game should be reviewed' thread:

    And how much was the fine on the refs in that game you say?
