F-ing Favre complains and the NFL levies $125,000 in fines
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The NFL assessed a total of $125,000 in fines to the New York Jets and former coach Eric Mangini on Wednesday for violating the league's rules on injury reporting with regard to former quarterback Brett Favre last season.

The Jets failed to place Favre, now with the Minnesota Vikings, on the injury report during the final month of last season, even though he had a torn biceps tendon.

The league announced it had fined the Jets $75,000, and Mangini and Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum $25,000 apiece. Mangini now coaches the Cleveland Browns.

"We have been fully cooperative with the league throughout this investigation and respect their decision," the Jets said in a statement.

How many times have other teams lied about their injuries? In fact has ANY team actually told the truth about their injuries? Yet diva f-ing favre complains and the NFL slaps the Jets and Mangini with $125,000 in fines.

1. Rules are rules
And I think Farve just commented in response to a question not complained. Even the Jets acknowledged that they handled the situation wrong. I believe the NFL has fined the patriots for the same behavior.

2. Mangini learned it from the master of cheating!

3. But is it really cheating, though?

Do you really believe the Jets did anything wrong here? Did it really give them any advantage over opponents?
