I saw this...odd amount huh? 21k? Conte didn't do it on purpose, the wr ducked after catching the ball, but they are gonna call it. That's a hefty chunk out of Conte's check I would assume, he ain't making too much.

This fine is BOGUS...

Even the announcers said that it was more of a letter of the law type of thing than an intentional hit. The NFL just wanted to take his money with this one, especially since he doesnt have a history.

21k is absolutely ridiculous.

They said on The Score this morning that it was something like 70% of his weekly game check. Rolling Eyes
