Vikings Robison Fined $20K For Kicking TJ Lang

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison has been fined $20,000 by the NFL for kicking Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang in their game Sunday.

Robison received word of the fine Wednesday. He apologized to Lang, the league and the Vikings via Twitter on Sunday evening after he kicked Lang in the groin during a field goal try in the second quarter of a 33-27 loss to the Packers.

Lang replied on Twitter that he accepted Robison’s apology and did not consider him a dirty player.

Robison says he got caught up in the heat of the moment when he kicked Lang, who had dumped him on to his back during Mason Crosby’s field goal attempt. Robison says he regrets it and will make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    Let’s see, vikings can kick a guy in the privates and get off for a few bucks, but squeeze the neck of a drama queen and it’s a felony, no pay, and jail time. Who’s running this country? Man up NFL!

    • Me

      No jail time? He was held over a weekend and has not been sentenced yet. Calm down Marge…

      • @me

        Robison got jail time? Can you read?

        • me

          Sorry, I’m a dunce. You’re right.

  • Tough Tony

    Robison’s fine should have been 20 thousand high fives to fans and teammates, his kick was a rallying cry and comic relief all in one motion…

    Also, Chris Cook is innocent until proven guilty, and he is likely being framed.

  • Bad girl

    Framed. Oh yeah, she choked herself, I’m sure of that.

    One thing about the Vikings leaving Minnesota, the news people won’t have much to do except look for real news.
