Looks like Flozell Adams has been fined $50,000 for his hit on Justin Tuck on the last play of the first half in last Sundays game. Usually the league notifies teams of suspensions on Tuesdays so they can plan for the upcoming game, and since the Cowboys were not notified of a suspension, Adams will most likely avoid a suspension.
There have been a lot of personal fouls against Adams this year, unnecessary roughness vs TB for a $5,000 fine and two personal fouls in week two against Tuck and Osi which only resulted in a total fine of $12,500. Week 3 also involved Adams kicking Julius Peppers for another $7,500 fine.
What baffles me is the league gives Adams a $50,000 fine for multiple penalties and Ochocinco gets $30,000 for wearing a sombero on the sidelines? Seriously? What has this league come to? Ochocino does do things to get attention but his antics aren't affecting players health or the play of the game. I think this is totally uncalled for.
Here's my issue: If they continue to review his penalties without making a decision before Sundays game it could directly affect us. I'm not afraid of Adams because obviously he has to do these things to keep up with everyone else in the game, but at the same time I don't want him "tripping" one of our players when we are in a run for a play-off spot and division lead.
There is no room for people like Adams and his behavior in the NFL.
