Matthews fined $15,750 by league for "roughing" Nick Foles

Well, this just keeps getting better and better. Apparently, Packers LB Clay Matthews has been fined $15,750 by the league for a stupid "roughing" penalty on Nick Foles in last week's loss to the Eagles. Now the hit was somewhat harsh, but it definitely wasn't fine-worthy. I'm fine with the 15 yard penalty, but for Matthews to be fined a penny because of this is absolutely ridiculous. 

So yea, the NFL's concussion paranoia is apparently not slowing down. In my opinion, sometime in the next decade we as a society are just gonna have to decide if football's worth it anymore. Right now, it seems to be a choice between two-hand touch and killing each other.
