Ellis throws $10,000 snowball

It’s all right for kids to toss snowballs, but not NFL players.

Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis was fined $10,000 for tossing a large snow clump in the direction of Seahawks fans on Sunday. The NFL pointed out that players are notified prior to each season that any contact with fans that potentially presents crowd-control issues and risk of injury is prohibited.

In addition, players are informed that they must not confront fans at any time on game day and must leave those types of issues to security personnel.

So the league hit up Ellis on Tuesday, which raises this question: What if a camera doesn’t capture him throwing the massive snowball? Then maybe Ellis never is fined. But a fan caught it, and so did the NFL.
