This earned a $20,000 fine:

But this play cost not a cent:*

The world would be a far better place if this were the only connection between Matthews and Russell Wilson’s head:

The discrepancy speaks volumes about the NFL’s commitment to player safety, though I imagine Clay Matthews can’t hear a word of it over his NFL-sanctioned headphones.

Too bad for Marshawn he had to give such an expensive Mother’s Day gift . . . of course I’m talking about this, what did you think?


*Update, ~6PM EST: Matthews was, in fact, fined $22,050 by the NFL, precisely $2,050 more than Marshawn Lynch was. That’s certainly better than nothing, but is still a clear demonstration of the league’s misguided priorities.
