Shaun Ellis Fined $10,000

As a followup to the piece that Classic wrote earlier, I’ve decided to give a little bit of an update on the Shaun Ellis “snow boulder” situation, as deemed by Classic. Just to bring you up to speed, here is another look at the video:

Earlier today Ellis, defensive captain of the New York Jets, was fined ten big ones for the incident. I think this is a little harsh considering it’s just some snow. Classic and I talked about this for a while last night and both of us found the video hilarious and that we didn’t think he should be fined at all for it. I believe an exact quote from that conversation would be “I would have been thrilled if it were me he hit.”

Jets head coach, Eric Mangini, had a different view on the situation all together saying that he thought the “situation in the stadium in general was not a very safe situation for anybody involved.” He went on to say “we thought that there could’ve been more done to prevent what was happening in terms of the safety from snowballs coming down.”

Ellis basically said that it was all in good fun and that there was no malicious intent. Unfortunately for Ellis, we all know what the N.F.L. stands for: the No Fun League. So even though he was just having fun, he’s going to get fined.

To learn more about the situation, I recommend reading this.

Let us know what you think about the fine in this poll:
