A $50,000.00 fine hardly offsets losing your franchise QB for at least a month, but at least it shows that the league thinks Jared Allen's two (2) shots to The Schaub's knee were dirty. It ain't much, but it's something, I guess.
The worst part is that the team that should suffer the most for the player's conduct (Minnesota) won't feel a thing, whereas the team that's suffering the most from Allen's conduct (Houston) has little recourse. Again, I reiterate the propriety of my proposed return to Hammurabi's Code for situations such as this: Give Super Mario a machete and a clear shot at Allen's knee. That'd be justice.
