A report from Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com revels the latest about two fines levied against Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews this season:
Matthews told ESPN.com on Thursday that the league reduced the $15,000 fine he received for hitting (Colin) Kaerpernick out of bounds in the season opener. That penalty started a fracas on the sideline. Matthews said the fine was cut to $7,500.
What's more, Matthews said he also won the appeal on his fine from Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles, when he was originally docked $15,750 for his roughing the passer penalty against Nick Foles.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
