There was a whole lot of drama that stemmed from this play. Bernard Pollard came out and said Brady should be fined, then Brady apologized to Ed Reed on the phone, and now this:
#Patriots QB Tom Brady was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness in the AFC championship game, I'm told. Came on the Ed Reed slide— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 24, 2013
And America rejoices!
For whatever reason fans of every other team in the league have it out for Tom Brady, hating him and Bill Belichick with a passion. Actually, I do know why they hate that duo, because they've won an ungodly amount of games.
Either way, I'm sure all the other fans are gloating right now. How often does a quarterback get fined for "unnecessary roughness"? It may have never happened before. It's just another blow after a loss in the AFC Championship.
What are your thoughts on the news?

Brady should be fine.
I don’t think it was the worst thing I have ever seen, but the NFL fines players for wearing their socks too high, so I think Brady should be a little lighter in the wallet.
For his part Ed Reed says he isn’t tripping.

This one little play has certainly gotten a lot of attention. With the final seconds of the second quarter counting down, Tom Brady scrambled, was surrounded by defenders, and then slid awkwardly with his leg going right for Reed's, umm, leg.

“Leg is feeling alright. A little sore right now,” Reed told WJZ-FM on Monday. “A little slide kick (by Brady), you know what I’m saying. But it’s a tough spot the quarterback’s in.

Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up.
