    Steelers and Emmanuel Sanders both fined for "cramp gate" 2012

    Adam Schefter reported this afternoon that both the team and Sanders were fined for the leg cramps incident 2 weeks ago against Cincy.

    NFL fined Steelers $35,000 and wide receiver Emanuel Sanders $15,000 for him faking an injury against Bengals.”

    Maurkice Pouncey retweeted that with "BS".

    How much were the Giants fined when half the team dropped to the carpet?

    I'd like to see what the hand signal is for "somebody fake and injury and hurry up!"

    In a related story the NFL fined James Harrison for witnessing the Cramp an additional $50,000.00.

    Besides the fines, Sanders was ordered to attend acting classes.

    No disciplinary actions taken against the Giants last season, just a warning to all NFL teams about it. Many players are quoted saying that every team does it.

    "I've been places where it has been (taught)," said Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, a member of the players' union executive committee. "They have a name for it and I've been places where it's been pre-called. I've been places where it's one player who has been designated. Maybe I'm getting everyone in trouble, but I'm just being honest."

    While calling it "real bush league" -- no pun intended -- Dolphins running back Reggie Bush said a coach "just designates a guy who fakes an injury. It's usually not a captain of the team. It's a guy who's expendable."

    In the memo obtained by ESPN and The Associated Press, the NFL reminded teams of league policy that calls on coaches to discourage the practice, and that there was no specific rule on the topic.

    However, two days after there was speculation the Giants' Deon Grant faked an injury against the Rams during the Monday night game, the NFL is warning of disciplinary action.

    "It's always been in the game," Ravens All-Pro safety Ed Reed said. "It's all tactical stuff you need to use. Whatever it takes. ... If you're tired, you're tired. You get a break however you can."

    Added 49ers running back Frank Gore: "Hey, I feel if it helps, do it. I'm bound to do it. Whatever it takes to win ..."

    I heard Abby Lee Miller also offers acting classes so when Manny is there getting his "Southside" dance lessons he can take an acting class or 20!

    Everyone knows he was faking. Bad acting. Not the first team to do this.
    Cleveland Browns suck!
