Pete Carroll: "Oh ya - I knew Golden Tate was fined. It was a fantastic block, in their eyes he clipped the guys facemask, in chin area"— Q Smith (@NWSBQ) September 19, 2012
Today however the NFL said Golden Tate has been fined for his block on Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee.
The NFL does not announce fines until Friday, but we are hearing it is for $21,000, since its a first-time offense.

Lee has come to define himself with a relentless work ethic, laid back demeanor when dealing with the media and off the field and a true...

Tom Coughlin was the most upset about it and Justin Tuck didn’t seem too far behind.

The Seahawks were aggressive, physical, controlled possession and wore down the Cowboys Sunday. While it may draw him a fine, no play was more emblematic of the physical style the Seahawks tried to impose than Golden Tate...
