Jets fined $100,000

The NFL has fined the New York Jets $100,000 for the Week 14 incident against the Miami Dolphins in which strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi tripped cornerback Nolan Carroll(notes) during a punt return. Alosi was fined $25,000 by the team and suspended indefinitely soon after the incident.

 The league fine wasn't just for the Alosi trip and the fact that he put other team employees in a prohibited position on the sideline; special teams coach Mike Westoff also got popped for speculating that the New England Patriots have used similar tactics in the past. More here.

Does the punishment fit the crime/s?
