The Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks aren’t even into the third quarter, yet, tempers are already flaring.

They flared a bit too much for Carolina Panthers defender Frank Alexander, who was ejected for punching a member of the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive line.

Even worse for Alexander and the Panthers? He did it after they had just sacked Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

As we speak, the Panthers are beating the Seahawks 7-3. We’ll see if the ejection comes back to haunt the Panthers, who earlier this morning were selected alongside the Kansas City Chiefs to make the Super Bowl by a UK NFL ‘analyst’.

Pretty good day for Carolina, sans the ejection, eh? lol

Alexander’s ejection is the first this season though will not be their only fine. Multiple players will be hearing from the league this week after a handful of dirty hits and helmet to helmet hits have taken place. That said, Alexander, considering his offense, will probably be given one of the larger fines from the league.

If you’re going to get ejected, make it worthwhile.

    So, no follow up? Did it have an effect to the outcome of the game?

      Not other them nullifing a very good defensive play, which was definately a possible momentume changer. At some point you would think that getting revenge is a stupid move on an NFL level player. Smitty should learn to walk away as well, it mean nothing in the long run.

    What no fine? Should be out for next game…
