The NFL assessed its first fine of the season for an on-field infraction against Eagles safety Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Last Thursday, Rodgers-Cromartie hit Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich by lowering his helmet and leaping towards him. In the NFL rulebook, this is called launching, a 15-yard penalty that invariably leads to a fine by the NFL office.
The league confirmed to FootballZebras.com that Rodgers-Cromartie, as we predicted, was fined $21,000.

One thought on “Rodgers-Cromartie fined $21K for launching”
Those fines are a joke. They should make them sit on the bench as a penalty, like hockey.
THAT WILL GET THEIR ATTENTION!
