    On $12m a year of course he thinks it’s fair.
    Still at least he’s not challenging it.

  2. Good on him atleast he knows what he did was wrong

    No the fine is not enough. Their wages go to millions of dollars and $50,000 are peanuts for this player. He has hurt somebody with his homophobic slurs and this hurt is not healed with a slap on the hand. These people should be made to pay dearly as a warning to others to wash their mouths before they spurt their hatred in public.

  4. I think an automatic 3 game suspension is a more appropriate punishment.

    i can guarantee that would clean up the language of these pseudo-adults pretty quick.

  5. 50K? doesn’t sound like much. If he’s paid as much in salaries and sponsorship as some of our premiership football players, he probably earns that amount in an hour.
