Sunday’s showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks was an expensive one.
Three Rams which include DT’s Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, and OLB Dante Fowler Jr were fined for personal foul penalties:
#Rams DT Aaron Donald was fined $23,395 total for grabbing #Seahawks OL Justin Britt's facemask and postgame conduct. Britt was fined $20,054 for late hit in same sequence. Also, Ndamukong Suh was fined $20,054 for hit on Russell Wilson and Dante Fowler Jr. $10,026 for facemask.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 17, 2018
Not only that, but Justin Britt was fined for his late hit on Donald out of bounds.
As mentioned in the tweet, Donald was fined the most of the bunch for his postgame skirmish (c’mon) with Britt. I’m not sure the punishment fit the crime per se, but a fine is a slap on the wrist at this point in the year.
Our 3k shared his thoughts on the battle between the two and the postgame actions from Donald.
It’s hard for me to knock a guy like Donald because ultimately it costed the team nothing. When a player disrespects you and purposely does something that can jeopardize your health, you simply have to stand up sometimes.
Better luck next time, Seattle!
