NFL Releases 2015 Fine Schedule

New, comments

The NFL released the 2015 schedule of fines this week, addressing costly contact fines with an official or malicious Bruce Lee impressions against each other. There's even the Gaylord Perry fine, known as "foreign substances" on one's uniform fine.

This year's fines from the NFL have been released and while many of them are your typical monetary penalities for fighting, taunting, or roughing the passer, throwing a football into the stands will now cost players $5,787 for a first offense and $11,576 for a second offense.

The first two offenses are clear enough; we imagine the third offense warrants a suspension, some inconsistencies from the Commissioner's office, or a fine at least three times greater than that of the first offense.
