Percy Harvin Fight With Captain Munnerlyn Ends With Possibly Unfair Fine

The Minnesota Vikings put up a fight against the Carolina Panthers last weekend, winning both on the field and in a scrap on the sidelines featuring wide receiver Percy Harvin and defensive back Captain Munnerlyn. Unfortunately for the Vikings speedster, he's been fined $7,500 for his role in the incident while Munnerlyn got out with his entire paycheck.

The Star Tribune has the story:

Harvin has been fined $7,500 by the NFL for his disagreement last weekend with Carolina's Captain Munnerlyn. The punishment stems from a tussle that occurred in the second quarter of the Vikings' 24-21 win. Following a 5-yard Christian Ponder scramble, Harvin became entangled with Munnerlyn. And as the two drifted onto the Panthers sideline, Harvin grabbed Munnerlyn by the facemask and forced him into the Carolina bench.

Harvin received a 15-yard personal foul penalty on the play. And, according to an NFL spokesman, because he grabbed Munnerlyn's facemask, a fine has been levied as well. For the record, Munnerlyn did not receive a penalty or a fine for the incident, prompting Harvin to tweet: "Can someone please explain how I get fined and the other player gets nothn..wow."

It is rather interesting that Munnerlyn wasn't fined. Maybe Harvin has to go meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell like fellow NFC North comrade Ndamukong Suh did earlier this week.
