Mason Rudolph Fined $50,000 For Brawl With Myles Garrett


The NFL has handed down a gigantic fine to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.

Rudolph was smoked in his head by his own helmet by Myles Garrett in a loss to the Browns, and we all know what happened next. All hell broke loose, Garrett hit Rudolph in the head, got suspended indefinitely and now the NFL has punished the Steelers passer.

This is absurdly stupid on the part of the NFL. What the hell did Rudolph do wrong? Is defending yourself now against the NFL’s rules?

Let’s also not forget that Garrett accused Rudolph of using a racial slur without providing any kind of proof at all!

The Steelers quarterback is 100% the victim here in all facets of the situation.

The NFL should be embarrassed by this fine. Roger Goodell and everybody else involved should be absolutely embarrassed.

What a pathetic situation. If you’re going to fine a player $50,000, you better have a damn good reason to do so.

Mason Rudolph was defending himself against Garrett, and now he’ll lose more money than a lot of people make in a year.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league looked into Myles Garrett’s allegations that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur last Thursday night before the brawl “and found no such evidence.”

Absolutely pathetic move by the NFL.
