    No suspensions, only fines for Jets involved in fight

    But more to come apparently... if Goodall hasn't destroyed the tape!

    League office will pick through video to hand out
    Jets-Pats fines

    The headline from the post script to the Thursday night game between the Jets
    and Patriots was the low hit from Jets center Nick Mangold
    against Pats cornerback Aqib Talib, chased by a brouhaha that resulted in Jets offensive linemen Willie Colon and being ejected.

    But there will be even more to the story. The league office will, we’re
    told, pick through all available video to determine who should be disciplined
    beyond Mangold, Colon, and Ferguson. That includes the game broadcast, the
    coaching film, and any footage collected by NFL Films cameras.

    We’ve looked at the game broadcast and the NFL Game Rewind coaching tape.
    Based on what we’ve seen, several guys should expect to hear from the league
    office.

    Colon and Ferguson were the primary aggressors for the Jets, but offensive
    lineman Vlad Ducasse also enters the fray. Ducasse doesn’t seem to take a swing
    at anyone, but he quickly becomes a pin cushion for fists/open hands to the head
    from Patriots defensive lineman , Patriots defensive lineman Joe Vellano, and
    Patriots cornerback , who knows a thing or two about taking swings at people.

    Apparentlystirred up by a head butt from Colon, Dennard’s first effort at
    hitting Ducasse resulted in a swing, a miss, and a pratfall. Then, after both
    Dennard and Ducasse were pulled away from the action and presumably had begun to
    calm down, Pats quarterback Ryan Mallett gives Ducasse a one-armed shoulder shove, Ducasse shoves back, and here comes Alfonzo.

    Dennard applies a sucker punch to the face mask/helmet area of Ducasse, who
    reacts by getting in Dennard’s face but doesn’t retaliate.

    The league office could see even more as the powers-that-be attempt to
    reconstruct the Royal Rumble that unfolded along the New England sideline. But
    the guys who are seen throwing hands/fists to the heads of opponents likely will
    be hearing from 345 Park Avenue.

    The level of discipline could be significant, since the NFL seems to regard
    with more gravity action that occurs after the whistle. In 2011, Lions
    defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was suspended for a post-play stomp on the arm of Packers center . In the 2013 preseason, Texans defensive end Antonio Smith received a three-game suspension (two in the preseason) for swinging a helmet at the unhelmeted head of Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito.

    Regardless, plenty of additional contributions will soon be made to the Human
    Fund, once the NFL parses through the cluster of humanity that exchanged
    pleasantries at the end of Thursday night’s game.

    @AdamSchefterLeague will fine, but not suspend, Jets players involved in Thursday night's fracas with the Patriots.

    Sounds like a lot of Patriots were throwing punches. I think the video must be wrong or altered, these guys don't remember THERE WERE NO FLAGS ON THE PATRIOTS.

    What video? Goodell has probably destroyed it already.

    How about fining Pat players that threw punches and suspend Refs for being one sided which caused the melee.

    that was a close call......I figured colon would definitely be suspended for having a ref

    Beli grabbed N official last year and was fine $50k. He was in the thick of another controversy last week.

    Seems like a trend.

    Really happy that this did not result in suspensions, the Jets are too thin to be dealing with players missing due to anything other than injury.
