    Goodell will fine him to protect his integrity, anything more is bogus.

    The price is going up. Two year ago, Harbaugh got $15K for karate- chopping an official in the chest during a one-possession game in the mid-4th quarter (while simultaneously berating him).

    Now Belichick gets $50K for grabbing an official after a game. And Del Rio, Fox and Shanahan get $25K - $30K for berating officials, with no physical contact. It will be interesting to see whether future infractions involving "real" NFL officials will be closer to the latest round of fines or to the pre-scab days.

    BB apologized..heat of the moment action....he let go IMMEDIATELY...

    The BB haters can get satisfaction that BB is 50K lighter.


    If you expected a suspension or a bigger fine, get real.


    Can we close this thread now so we can discuss some football??

    Unwanted touching. Definitely assault right there. $50K does not seem like enough somehow.

    Belichick was really trying to grab his penis.

    Definitely battery. Possibly assault. $50k seems excessive when Harbaugh only got $15k for worse 2 years ago. But I agree with AGAW -- the real crime was disobeying Goodell.

    He also said he's never been penalized before.

    I seem to recall something...

    Unless he meant "penalized for grabbing a replacement Ref. whilst he was exiting the field after a close game"

    Just sayin.

    He could and should have been criminally charged. It's not just assault, but also attempting to influence the event by threat of bodily injury, intimidation, and menacing. Plus, given Belicheck's well-deserved reputation, the official could justifiably have been afraid for his life, and I would not have blamed him in the slightest had he used deadly force to protect himself against the assault-in-progress. The fact that Belicheck wasn't at least suspended by the NFL makes another thing clear: him and Kraft are not above using bribery to make the league look the other way.

    Frankly I thought Shannan's kid shoulda been fined more than Beli. From what I understand he verbally abused the ref all the way down the tunnel.

    Beli just grabbed the guys arm and the ref kept running and that was it.

    Both of them should have been suspended but Goodell doesn't have a clue. He leads a charmed life he could be the most inepts commisioner in sports and still have a successful NFL which is exactly the case.
