THE QUESTION

Fining tributes?

Should Roger Goodell punish players who violated NFL policies in paying tribute to Chris Henry?

FROM THE PANEL

Janet Jackson would be proud

Roger Goodell wants to rule the NFL with an iron fist.

Accepting exception

I get why the league never wants to bend the rules, but this is one of those unique instances that merits it.

Rules are rules

Some "tributes" were more about poking Goodell in the eye than in truly honoring Henry's memory.

Won't happen

Roger Goodell fines players a lot for a lot of things, but he knows public relations.

Let it go, Goodell

Typically, I get tired of the antics of overpaid, spoiled athletes and would encourage Goodell to fine them. Not this time.

Have a heart, NFL

Leave the fines alone for a week.

Where's the harm?

Sometimes rules should be set aside for extenuating circumstance, especially when the harm is non-existent.
