Well, it's official: I can't figure out how the NFL can justify this...
Tom Brady's failed attempt to kick Ed Reed in the 'nads in the AFC Championship game on Sunday will cost him $10,000.
Meanwhile, San Francisco RB Frank Gore was also fined by the NFL for a flagrant violation in the NFC Championship game. His fine was higher than Brady's: $10,500. Boy, whatever Gore did must've been pretty bad, right?
Gore was fined for wearing his socks too low!!!!
So a failed kick to the 'nads is ruled to be not as severe as a case of low hanging socks. It begs the question:
"How much would Brady have been fined if his foot had actually found it's target?"
