Antrelle Rolle fined 12.5K for facemask....

I reported on this week's FSN's Pro Football Preview that Arizona Cardinals cornerback Antrel Rolle has been fined a whopping $12,500 by the NFL for his facemask of the Chiefs' Larry Johnson in Sunday's game.

Johnson injured his neck on the play and didn't practice until Thursday for Kansas City due to the injury; but he is expected to play against Pittsburgh this weekend.

On the play, Johnson was running free down the sideline when Rolle caught him, grabbed a hold of his facemask and dragged him down and out of bounds without letting go of the mask.

I don't think it warranted a fine. 12.5k is nothing to him though.

Its just a very light slap on the wrist. $12,500 is pennies to him, but I think they just wanted to make a statement that they are going to protect players.

That's his second of the season. He was also fined for a horse-collar tackle earlier.

Antrelle Rolle = Dirty Player, pass it on.

Dirty player or not, I don't care. I like seeing that Nastiness in players. You can call it bad for the sport or whatever you want, but he's a great safety and is not scared to knock someone out cold.

I love it.

You haven't seen the video or picture, have you. This could kill an unlucky player:

I agree. I'm glad he got fined. That play was unnecessary.

Chump change for that guy. Should include a suspension. Players who get beat have to resort to those tactics. Nothing wrong with putting a good lick on someone but his weren't.

Yup, he got fined for horse collaring Shaun Alexander, and some people have pointed to that as the cause of his broken foot.

He keeps this up, he going to have the reputation of a dirty player even if he isn't. And I've read that even if Rolle appeals the fine, there's little chance of it being reduced because it's his second fine.
