Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed had a few choice words for the league office and Commissioner Roger Goodell.
"There's so much that needs to be done, but they'd rather police certain things," Reed told the Baltimore Sun. "You tend to miss things when you're making a certain amount of money, and not playing the game, you're missing out. You're just somebody upstairs wearing a suit, fining people and stuff like that for the wrong things. We're policing the wrong things, for real. I really don't know what to say about our commissioner, honestly. It's probably more him and his staff who came up with the things we are being fined for.
"It's not just Mr. Goodell. I think he needs more help at the fining process, not just have do-boys who want to please you. I try and stay away as far as possible, kinda just stay away from the principal like school, stay away from the principal's office as much as possible, but obviously they found me and the way they found me, it's been ridiculous, honestly."
Reed was actually suspended for a game this season for a hit on Pittsburgh's Emmanuel Sanders, but an appeal of the suspension had the penalty reduced to just a $55,000 fine.
