When I first wrote about Chad Greenway’s ferocious hit on Calvin Johnson I estimated that the hit would cost him “something in the neighborhood of $20,000.”
Thus, it didn’t come as a surprise to me when the NFL announced it would be fining the Vikings linebacker $21,000.
Apparently it came as a surprise to Greenway, however, even though Greenway said right after the game that he fully expected to be fined.
Greenway has reportedly said his appeal is not based off the fact that he was fined, but rather the amount of the fine.
Me? I think he got off light considering he almost single-handedly enacted the Madden curse.
