Chicago Bears Brian Urlacher Takes Issue With NFL Fines
Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher lashed out at NFL fines this morning on ESPN Radio.
“I think it’s bull, the way they’re doing it. The thing I don’t like about it is, if they say it, you pay the fine. That’s all there is to it,” Urlacher reportedly explained. “And I don’t know who makes the decision. I don’t know if there’s one guy, two guys, but I don’t think it’s fair. I think we should have a panel of guys who look at those hits and go over them.”
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison was fined $25,000 on Tuesday for a hit on Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. He has been fined four times this season totaling $125,000.
Urlacher went on to say that he thinks the money is “outrageous,” suggesting that there should be different levels of fines. He has not been fined this season.
