Muhammad Wilkerson Fined $10,000 for Altercation With Brandon Jacobs

New, comments

Jets rookie defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson was fined $10,000 for the altercation with Brandon Jacobs that led to his ejection in Gang Green's preseason game with the Giants.

 

... Jacobs hit for $20k for unsportsmanlike conduct, Wilkerson $10k.
Jacobs got twice the fine. That seems fair considering he seemed like the instigator.

There seems to be a lot of chatter going back and forth between the Jets and Giants, and that preseason game was very chippy. There seems to be a lot of bad blood. The Christmas Eve game is going to be very intense.

Giants fans already seemed to be in a fury with the Jets today because of some shots Plaxico Burress took. Then I saw some crazy Sal Alosi conspiracy accusations made against Mike Westhoff and Westhoff  get names by Giants fans because he expressed disappointment in the job Steve Weatherford did with the Jets last year. That seems a bit over the top. I mean it just seems like he was asked a question, and there was clearly a reason the Jets didn't try and keep Weatherford. I disagreed with the substance of what Westhoff said because I thought Weatherford was good last year. Why Giants fans responded with such vitriol is puzzling.

At any rate, I am sure this will bring even more fury from across town.
