    League fines Tom Brady $10,000 for Ed Reed kick

    Well, all those folks who say the Patriots get special treatment from the league office are feeling a little vindicated right now. Or maybe foolish.

    According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the league has fined quarterback Tom Brady for his Tin Man sans oil can slide, which ended with a Ty Cobb cleating of Ravens safety Ed Reed.

    It’s the right call. While the broadcast angle suggested mere awkwardness and lack of flexibility in an age of increasingly mobile quarterbacks, the reverse angle made it look a foot-first eff-you to Reed.

    The league fined Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh $30,000 for a Thanksgiving foot to the groin of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. And before those who say the Patriots get special treatment from the league office point to that disparity and exclaim, “A-ha!” it’s important to keep in mind that Suh’s history influenced his fine.

    Brady has no such history.

    Correction, had no such history.

    I'm honestly shocked he got fined for that. It was a bit of a moment though.

    A little odd. Not wearing spikes and not really "kicking" but just holding up the leg, he wasn't going to do damage.

    Fair though, since judging intent is not a consideration in rule enforcement.

    Funny these things get a similar fine to that of a guy wearing his socks too low.

    see the turf shoes, with plastic nubs as opposed to spikes:

    The mansion is in Los Angeles, it's 22,000 square feet and it took three years to build. The Free Press describes it as a "virtual castle," and that seems appropriate. There's a custom play area for the Brady kids, an enormous pool and, again, a moat.

    Wow. Sounds like that fine may prevent him from having an 11th bathroom.

    Honestly I am a little surprised seems like that would have been more dangerous for Brady than anybody.
