How about some hefty fines…

A couple of hefty fines handed down in the NFL and the NBA.  Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens has been fined $55K for his hit on Giant’s WR Victor Cruz in last Sunday’s game.  No suspension.

Lakers Dwight Howard has been hit with a $35K fine for his flagrant two foul in the loss to Denver a couple of night’s ago.

The leagues are just doing their job, but I doubt either of these two will miss the $$.  Ed Reed has said he is making a conscious effort to think about how he hits when playing in light of the serious stance on helmet to helmet hits and concussion issues.
