ESPN reported that the Cincinnati Bengals didn’t expect a suspension for Burfict for stepping on LeGarrette Blount Sunday, and they were right: he reportedly was fined $75 grand for it.
And even richer, instead of being glad it didn’t cost him another game, he’s going to appeal it.
Bad play. Dude.
Scratch the check, keep moving, be glad they didn’t suspend you again.. and stop going at guys’ knees and stomping them. You got away with this one, probably shouldn’t have and definitely won’t next time. Not with your track record and rap sheet. And not when the league says that factors in with any of discipline they hit you with.
That’s a slap on the wrist. Be happy with it. And stand down.
