I gotta hand it to the Bammers out there. The video is funny and ironic. Just to think a Bama fan made it out of Wal-Mart alive to produce such a masterpiece is an accomplishment in itself. I can only imagine the amount of rumors we will hear leading up to Cam Newton winning the Heisman Trophy next week. And God forbid if Auburn actually wins the whole thing. Bama Nation would be on suicide watch.

JAMES HARRISON'S HIT ON RYAN FITZPATRICK EQUALS A $25,000 FINE
ANDRE JOHNSON'S RIPPING OFF THE HELMET AND PUNCHING AN OPPOSING PLAYER FACE EQUALS A $25,000 FINE
I guess I will it leave up to you the commentator what you view as the more malicious and deserving of a fine. The NFL is getting beyond ridiculous with their fines for players making clean tackles. Pittsburgh's James Harrison made a clean hit on Bill's QB Ryan Fitzpatrick just as he delivered the ball. Some will say he lead with his helmet but what the fuck is he suppose to do? Tackle with his black mamba? Texan's Andre Johnson deliberately ripped off Cortland Finnegan's helmet and punched the living shit out of him. I've heard Finnegan is a Grade A douchebag but how can you fine Harrison and Johnson the same amount when the intention was so different? Harrison I would argue is playing within the game. It's football and he was making a tackle. Unfortunately for him the NFL views any significant late hit on the QB as malicious even if it's a Buffalo QB. Johnson went berserk and should have been thrown out of the game.
Richard Seymour last week deliberately punched Ben Roethlisberger and yet he got fined only $25,000!
The NFL has their priorities all screwed up. This isn't hockey. If you punch someone deliberately you should be fined extensively and suspended. I'm talking a game's paycheck and not .5 of 1% of their yearly salary.
Or maybe the NFL knows that guys like Finnegan and Roethlisberger deserve a good punch every once in a while and will look the other way when it comes to supposedly "good guys" such as Andre Johnson and Richard Seymour deliver these punches. The NFL has set up their fine structure in terms of perception. Harrison's NFL perception is of a head hunter and even when he kisses the QB's vagina such as Fitzpatrick they are just waiting to fine him.
