Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $112,000 for multiple plays that constituted unnecessary roughness in Cincinnati’s Week 6 game against Pittsburgh, including the plays involving the Steelers’ Antonio Brown (11:19 in 3rd quarter) and James Conner (5:17 in 3rd quarter).


This makes no sense to me. Why did it take this long after the game to happen? And why only a fine with his track record?

If the point of a punishment is to deter someone from doing something again, why give them a lesser punishment than he got the last time he did that thing?

I think the league is just too cowardly to give a long term suspension to someone.
