Default Roy Hibbert fined $75k for remarks

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has been fined $75,000 by the NBA for using inappropriate and vulgar language during postgame interviews following the Pacers' 91-77 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

"While Roy has issued an apology, which is no doubt sincere, a fine is necessary to reinforce that such offensive comments will not be tolerated by the NBA," said NBA Commissioner David Stern.

Well I expected it to be 100k, but seems fair.

I can turn on my TV right now and watch all manner of deplorable violence being acted out right there. But don't you DARE utter a no-no word on television or you're going to pay.

But you know...freedom and all that.

That is alot of money for a joke that isn't really a gay slur, more like a bad joke....kinda like "that's what she said."

75k for something that didn't impact the game at all.
Yet only 5-10k for this:


NBA =

Seems excessive to me, but at least the Dictator didn't ban him from game 7.
