NFL Fines We'd Like To See

Bleacher ReportSenior Analyst IMay 30, 2008

With the NBA implementing fines for flopping next year, we thought of a few fines we'd like to see created in the NFL.

We've already got fines for hitting QBs and collaring people by their horses, but you will now be fined for the following things:

  • You do the little "throw the flag" dance after some CB brushes you
  • You call a fake audible, and you're not Peyton Manning
  • You hire Bryant Gumbel to do anything involving the NFL
  • The phrase "I think Ricky Williams is ready to play this year" crosses your lips
  • You catch yourself singing along to "This is My Country"
  • Your chica's booty weighs more than you can rush for in a game
  • You line Roy Williams up at safety
  • Roy Williams covers you for an entire play
  • You wear white Michael Jackson gloves
  • Your name is Chris Berman
  • You give Tom Brady a dirty look
  • You allow Mercury Morris to speak
  • You say the word "disrespect" more than once a month
  • You celebrate quarterback "hits," even on completions
