Found September 18, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Buccs safety Dashon Goldson suspension was overturned on appeal, for a hit against New Orleans Saints Darren Sproles on Sunday. The NFL is still fining the safety $100,000 for the hit. Kind of seems like if the suspension was overturned, the fine should be as well but I guess the NFL and Commissioner Goodell is making sure the message comes across loud and clear. NFL announced it fined Bucs S Dashon Goldson $100,000 for hit on Darren Sproles and upheld his $30,000 fine from week 1. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 18, 2013
