    The No Fun League strikes again! Still, it's better than Selig's "Steroids? What steroids?" MLB.

    Fucking absurd... It should be about 1/4th of that...

    If it's that high, they must've found out that he got that amount to wear it...

    100K for the wrong hat? No wonder Joe Thomas is going to tell the NFL to get bent and go fishing on draft day. It's his last chance at an unencumbered life for years.

    If I'm Urlacher, I'm paying that fine with 10 million pennies...if I pay it at all.

    Yeah, damn it, a guy should be allowed to wear Balco Lab gear if he wants to.

    I'm all for civil liberties and freedom of expression, but it's hard to work up sympathy for these guys regarding the uniform policies. You work at their store, they set the rules. If you work at McDonald's, they're probably not going to let you wear a cap or t-shirt promoting a business or a cause.

    Left to their own devices, there's no limit to the amount of embarrassment the citizens of the NFL might bring on the league, especially in this era of "miracle" supplements.

    I agree with the NFL on this. At NFL-sponsored events, you wear their gear. Period.

    The fine is a little high, though.

    Problem with a smaller fine is an advertiser would probably gladly pay $5,000 for the publicity. Then there's no deterrent.

    If they want to fine him, cool. But why wait three months to do it?
