Steelers | Ryan Clark critical of fine

Pittsburgh Steelers FS Ryan Clark was critical of the NFL for the $40,000 fine he received for a helmet-to-helmet hit in Week 9. Clark believes there was nothing malicious about the hit. "There wasn't anything malicious about it," Clark said. "It wasn't a spear. It wasn't a forearm to the head. It wasn't any of those things and to be fined $40,000 for that? To me it's either targeting me as a single player or it's targeting this team." Clark will appeal the fine. Clark was also critical of commissioner Roger Goodell. "I did everything I was asked to do and (NFL commissioner Roger) Goodell and all those other guys, they sit in their office with their suits and make these decisions on what a split-second reaction by the player is and this time it's wrong."
