Charles Woodson Fined $15,000 For Hit On Eli Manning

Packersnews.com | Green Bay Packers | Insiders Blog " Woodson fined for hit on Manning. I understand the fine, but it's not very fair to Charles Woodson either.

Woodson definitely hit Eli Manning. He came on a blitz and raised his arms to block the pass. When his arm came down, it grazed the right side of Manning's head. He was being blocked at the time, and it certainly had an effect on where his arm came down. It didn't look like an intentional hit. Did he really deserve a $15,000 fine?

I think two things come into play. Pro Football Talk points out that this is his second fine of the season, so the NFL probably charges extra for being a repeat offender. And other players, like Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew, who was stupid enough to make contact with a ref (he's apologized a lot), was hit with a $25,000 fine.

Though I'm not sure Mathias Kiwanuka did anything to deserve a $7,500 fine either. It was clearly a facemask, but it didn't look intentional and he quickly released it. I guess that's just the way it goes in the fine crazy NFL.
