Pace Jack Lambert. If it wasn't the No Fair League, a defender with a bead on a ball carrier should be aware that it's better to GoldenTate than to receive;
Golden Tate was fined $21,000 by the NFL for his block of Sean Lee, according to ESPNDallas.com and NFL.com. The report was subsequently confirmed by the Seahawks.
....Tate did not confirm he had been fined, but using his Twitter account did re-Tweet several comments from fans disagreeing with the fine. One of those Tweets cited Tate's own words after the game: "If I didn't hit him then he would have hit my quarterback."
But word got out in Dallas, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had stated he expected Tate to be fined for the hit.
"I'm sure they will," Jones said in Dallas' locker room after the game. "We saw the same thing you saw. That's certainly something we know or expect penalties and fines about."
