Def. a bit over the top. Gooddell seems like he really whats to make an impression of how stern he is and he won't take anything thats not approved. Regardless, I think vitamin water should pay the fine because they will likely get some good publicity with every sportswriter in the country talking about this over the next few days.

This is icing on the cake for vitamin water. I can guarantee they paid Urlacher’s fine and then some.They knew he’d be fined,this is just what they wanted. There still getting publicity over a month after the game. I bet there marketing executives are doing cart wheels right now.

That's the definition of excessive...but these players need to learn that they are not above the "law".

urlacher already knew what was going to happen. i would be shocked if they didn't pay the fine for him. they got just what they wanted out of the hat

If true, Goodell is crazy.

This is rediculous, the NFL whores out there players left and right and makes tons of money off of them, but when one of there players decides to make money on his own they rape the guy. I cant stand Goodell already, i miss Tags. I know it wont put much of a dent in Urlachers wallet, but come on, that has got to be one of the most expensive hats ever.

I don't think Goodell is to blame here. This is not something new the league has just come up with. They have has this rule in for quite some time. They(the NFL) are paying their employees(the players) and they have the right to restrict what they wear at a company event. It is no different than me being required to wear a uniform on my job. If I worked at Kmart, i am sure they would have a problem if I walked in with a Walmart shirt on.


I do think the fine was exessive but Urlacher knew what would happen and he did it anyway. This is not Goddell's fault.

Re: Urlacher fined $100,000

i see the NFL side of this. Gatorade is a known supplier/ paid advertiser. part of their contract stipulates the Gatorade only involvement with the NFL. they paid for the energy drink monopoly over the NFL

I agree. If enough of this stuff happens gatorade could easily pull the plug on their relationship with the NFL.

The NFL is just keeping their advertisers happy, simple as that.
