    Ryan Clark fined 15K for hit vs Patriots

    Here's a new twist to an old story: Another Steelers player was fined this week, and not only did he agree with the fine, he believes the NFL is doing the right thing.

    That player also happens to be safety Ryan Clark, who in the past has been an outspoken critic of fines levied on the Steelers by the NFL. Clark, the team's representative to the NFL Players Association, was fined $15,000 for a hit out of bounds on New England tight end Rob Gronkowski in the third quarter Sunday at Heinz Field.
    "It's part of the rules, though, man," Clark said today. "If you get a personal foul, they've been fining for that. I have to be smarter in that sense and not put myself in that position."

    Clark joins many other teammates who have been fined this season for various infractions, including Chris Kemoeatu who had a double-whammy the week before for two penalties, a personal foul and hands to the face that cost him $25,000. Kemoeatu also was caught for another foul for hands to the face against the Patriots, but he was not fined for that, perhaps because he said he pulled off this time.

    "You have to understand that if they see something that they feel is outside the rules, you're going to get a fine for it," Clark said. "That's just the way the game is going. They're really setting high standards for fair play, and they're also setting high standards for player safety. That's something that we as players want to implement.
    "They're being pro-active in that approach so we have to find ways to make sure we play within those guidelines."

    Is this "personal foul" penalty that they're referring to the one where he hit Gronk when he was still actually inbounds but they threw the flag anyway?

    He was out of bounds and a helmet to helmet hit. Late flag but an obvious penalty

    Shouldn't the only penalty be the penalty on the field? Why a fine?
    That's like getting fined for a facemask that happened on the field. This is getting out of hand.

    I'm surprised they didn't fine him for that hit on Green-Ellis now that was helmet to helmet , he shouldn't have been fined for that late hit just flagged. I mean he down right hit that guy in the mouth with the crown of his helmet lol. Just proves that the NFL could care less about player safety. That's probably why Clarks not complaining.

    Does someone want to find me a video of this hit? I mean, I guess since I was there I could have missed it, but I don't remember this at all.

    On the television it looked to me like Gronk was fighting to stay in bounds. I need to go back and try to find it. It's now a "who's going to get fined this week?" type of league. Ridiculous.
