Raiders' DL Richard Seymour Gets Fined $25,000 for Decking Steelers' QB Ben Roethlisberger

You can read about it here.

Roethlisberger has had his run-ins with the law, and has received much notoriety because of his treatment of young women. So. . .

Does it stand to reason that an angry father -- a man of means -- paid a bounty to the first NFL lineman who decked the Steelers' quarterback? Think about it, perhaps there's a subterranean network of bounty providers and sponsors that will pay a player more than the fine he's hit with for committing the personal foul. So, you might figure that the National Organization for Women, leading feminists and many others might have pooled their resources for something like this, say a cool $250,000 or more for whoever took a shot at Roethlisberger, kind of an underground version of "All Jacked Up." My guess is that there are lots of women whom Roethlisberger left in his wake who would have contributed to Seymour's mugging of Roethlisberger.

Okay, so it was just a thought.
