Who’s the Bonehead of the Week? — Sports Survey of the Day
Welcome to the Week of the Fine! Three big-name players in their respective sports landed hefty fines for some pretty boneheaded moves.
First offender: Dwyane Wade. The NBA has suspended the Miami Heat guard for one game for kicking the groin of Charlotte’s Ramon Sessions. See what throwing a tantrum gets you?
Second offender: Dwight Howard. Howard has been fine $35,000 by the NBA for his flagrant foul on Denver’s Kenneth Faried. If you missed it, Howard was a poor sport and shoved his hand in Faried’s face, and was ejected.
Third offender: Ed Reed. The Baltimore Raven’s safety has been fined a hefty $55,000 by the NFL for his hit on New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz. A veteran player like Reed should know better than the strike a defenseless receiver.
