Brady fined, is the world as we know it ending? - papachaz - 01-24-2013 04:56 PM
LMAO couldn't resist this, through the years, we've seen sooooo many 'calls' that Brady would get that no one else would. I mean seriously, how many times have you read a post about 'Brady would get that call'........how many have you even been guilty of writing this yourself, or at least thinking it? well, maybe we're seeing a new world order coming around in the NFL! check it out. Brady got fined 10 grand for raising his foot and kicking Ed Reed during a slide last sunday. You have to KNOW Ed Reed is sitting somewhere laughing:

Ty Cobb would have been proud.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was a bit aggressive during Sunday's AFC Championship Game loss to the Baltimore Ravens, kicking safety Ed Reed in the thigh as he slid with his right foot in the air during a second-quarter scramble. Reed tried to jump over Brady, but he still was kicked.
While Reed was unsuccessful in avoiding Brady, the Patriots quarterback couldn't escape the NFL. The league fined Brady $10,000 for the slide, a source informed of the fine told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport on Wednesday.
Ravens linebacker Bernard Pollard, who has a habit of knocking Patriots players out of games, took issue with the slide. Brady apologized to Reed, even though it was an accident.
The whole incident seems blown out of proportion. It looked like Brady instinctively put the leg up to protect himself from the oncoming Reed -- which isn't an unreasonable reaction. It didn't look like there was any ill intent, and, unlike Cobb, Brady isn't known as a dirty player.

Yeah I was shocked to hear about this. Frank Gore got fined for not having his socks pulled up tight to his knees against the Falcons.
