    Default Ward, Kemoeatu fined $5,000 each

    Ward, Kemoeatu fined $5,000 each

    Chris Kemoeatu was fined $5,000 for their part in what was one of the best football fights I've seen in 18 years of covering the league.

    That said, I don't believe Ward deserved a fine.

    Let's go back to the play in question against the Tennessee Titans.

    On the Steelers' first offensive play from scrimmage, Dennis Dixon threw a pass that was deflected, hit the ground and bounced into the hands of a Tennessee defender.

    The play could have been ruled a lateral and Hines Ward immediately grabbed the Tennessee player - defensive tackle Tony Brown - and tried to wrestle him to the ground. Moments later, the entire Tennessee defense ploughed into the play.

    Kemoeatu came running and ploughed into the pile as well. Brown and Kemoeatu both drew fines for the play.

    Ward was also fined for excessive face masking, whatever that may be. Ward was not penalized for grabbing anyone's facemask in the game.

    Those two penalties come on top of the $5,000 James Harrison was fined for spiking Titans' QB Vince Young in the third quarter.

    2 more Steelers fined over Titans game
    Thursday, September 23, 2010
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Two Steelers were fined for their involvement in a fight near the start of Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Receiver Hines Ward and guard Chris Kemoeatu were each fined $5,000 by the NFL for separate offenses during a skirmish between the teams following the first play from scrimmage in Nashville.

    Ward told the Post-Gazette he was fined for "excessive face-masking" and Kemoeatu said he was fined for spearing after he said he came to Ward's defense. The scuffle among a group of players broke up after an incomplete pass to Ward on the right side.

    "It was an incomplete pass, but the guy picked it up and I just held it and the next thing you know, he punches me with the ball," Ward said. "I almost fell, but I grabbed his facemask; everybody was grabbing facemasks.

    "The next thing you know, I'm trying to defend myself off three big men."

    His own big man, Kemoeatu, came in to help.

    "There were two or three dudes going after Hines," Kemoeatu said. "I just got the first dude."

    Kemoeatu and the Titans player Ward thought hit him, defensive tackle Tony Brown, were each penalized for personal fouls, canceling each other out.

    Steelers linebacker James Harrison also came away with a $5,000 fine from that game for body-slamming Titans quarterback Vince Young on a sack.

    If I were those guys, I would go to the bank, take out pennies and drop it off at the league office.

    Plus, were we fighting with ourselves? Where are the Titans fines? Man, Fisher took this loss hard. One week the Titans look like they are Super Bowl bound and the next week we are tossing them around like rag dolls.

    In Goodell's "21st century football", it apparently is outlawed...

    Finnegan (Titans) was also fined.... I don't like the guy, but I laughed at his comment, which I highlighted...

    Finnegan fined for his role in brawl
    JIM WYATT, The Tennessean
    Posted on September 23, 2010

    Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan has been fined by the NFL for his role in the first quarter brawl against the Steelers. Finnegan said he plans to appeal the fine, which is believed to be $5,000.

    At the end of Pittsburgh's first offensive play, several players got into a skirmish. The Titans felt Steelers receiver Hines Ward was being too aggressive after a pass was ruled incomplete. Finnegan stepped in, got tangled up with Ward, and things escalated from there as a number of players joined in.

    Finnegan later received a personal foul for punching receiver Mike Wallace, but was not fined for that incident.

    “I’ve only got one (fine) so far, so that’s good,’’ Finnegan said Thursday. “But I’m not happy about it. I am going to appeal that for sure. They better have gotten (Ward), and better have gotten more than just me and him, too. Some of that stuff I don’t get. [HIGH-LIGHT]It’s a putt-putt league now, you can’t do nothing.’’[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    The NFL fined Steelers linebacker James Harrison $5,000 for his body-slam of Titans quarterback Vince Young.
