Matthews fined 15k by league for late hit on Kaepernick

Today, NFL Network's Albert Breer reported that Packers LB Clay Matthews had been fined $15,000 by the league for his late hit Sunday on 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. While I agree the hit wasn't necessary, a fine wasn't either. We know who to blame for this injustice: Jim Harbaugh. 

If Harbaugh would've shut up and not accused Matthews of heading a bounty program last week, the refs wouldn't have been scared into calling a penalty on the play. No penalty, no fight. No fight, no fine. So, thanks a lot Harbaugh for abusing this system of businessmen trying to make the game safer. You completely fooled every one of them.
