Stokley fined $25K

Apparently ejecting him was not enough. The NFL is fining Brandon Stokley $25,000 "for making intentional physical contact with a game official during last week’s game against the Eagles, according to a league source." That is complete bogus! Brandon did get mad, and should have been flagged for getting so angry at the ref, but ejecting him, then fining him for an accident, that is going way to far. Stokley was mad and was making an appeal, the ref told Stokley to go the sideline and Stokley swung his arm in unbelief and accidentally hit the field judge. Maybe I'm just bias because I see through Orange and Blue eyes, you be the jury:

I think it's a crock of shit and the refs and whoever imposes the fines should be embarrassed for being so petty and harsh. Brandon Stokley is not a hot head troublemaker and it was obviously accidental contact. I thought that particular ref was awful harsh and sounded particularly joyful to call penalties against the Broncos the first half anyway....but I may just be biased there. Poor Stokley.

Thanks for the comment! It's great to get feed back...

But please refrain from using that kind of language. I agree, the refs seemed totally against the Broncos in that game.
