For throwing a punch at Dolphins safety Reshad Jones, wide receiver Robert Woods, of the Buffalo Bills, was fined $15,000 by the NFL.
Woods was ejected in the third quarter of the Bills’ 19-0 win Sunday over the Dolphins after he swung at Jones’ helmet while the two players tussled on the ground.
“Of course you shouldn’t throw a punch in a football game, but if you’re playing outside the rules, sometimes you got to be a man sometimes,” Woods said Monday. “But I learned my lesson and just can’t do it again.”
It’s a big fine, but Woods was also ejected from the game, so it was expected to be as much as it was. From latimes.com,
The altercation occurred in the third quarter of Buffalo’s 19-0 win Sunday. Woods and Jones became tangled up during a running play and eventually wrestled each other to the ground. Woods was unhappy with how Jones threw him into a pile of players following the whistle. Jones was on one knee and had his back turned when Woods caught him with an uppercut across the facemask.
What do you think? Was Woods’ fine justified, should it have been more than $15,000? Sound of in the comments below.
