In a slightly surprising move, the NFL fined Raiders DT Richard Seymour $25,000 for punching (well, open-handed slapping) Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger during Pittsburgh’s 35-3 victory on Sunday.

I say slightly surprising, because I thought the fine would, at the very least, be in the $50,000 range. Considering it wasn’t a bang-bang play, and though it likely wasn’t premeditated, the slap didn’t happen in the context of the game. It also got Seymour ejected (you can see the video right here) .

"I apologize to my teammates," Seymour said after Sunday’s game. "I never want to do anything to hurt the team. You always want to protect yourself, but there's no excuse.

"I'm not sure why he [Roethlisberger] ran up on me. I just turned around and it was a natural reaction.”

I am curious if the attacker happenned to be James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers. What would that fine be? Or would he be terminated from football after all of the other hits he committed? That would be an interesting  question for Mr Godell. I guess the players are treated as if they were in a criminal court. First time offenders get off easy.
