Finley fined $15,750 by league for "illegal" block in Ravens game

Well, it now appears that the plague that is the NFL's paranoia has reached the Packers receivers. As today, reported that Green Bay TE Jermichael Finley has been fined $15,750 by the league for what they called an "illegal" block at the Ravens Terrell Suggs. Finley, as he should, will appeal the punishment. I've seen this hit, and it is definitely not fine-worthy. Finley hit him hard, but it's not in the head. It was a clean block and I'm happy that he's seeing that. 

On his twitter account, Finley sarcastically thanked the league for the fine, thanking them for "fining him for playing football." While I agree with him on this, that kinda statement will probably sway the league into upholding the fine. If he had been a little more polite, maybe they'd have pity on him but since he said what everybody else was already thinking he now seems guilty to me.
