while you make a good point, I believe part of Torts ridiculous fine was interpreted as publicly criticizing officials, but you can't blame the league for that disparity as they apparently don't have control over the fine limit at this point. I'm very much in agreement with the original point and I hope people in the media pick up on this disparity. Smashing head == Chirping at players during pregame interviews.
