Darnell Dockett of the Cardinals Faces $200,000 Fine


Darnell Dockett of the Arizona Cardinals has been slapped with a significant fine and may not have much part in Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks due to his actions during a losing game against the New York Jets.

Reportedly, Dockett wouldn't accept the decision by head coach Ken Whisenhunt and defensive coordinator Ray Horton allowing the Jets to score. This call prevented the Cardinals from gaining possession of the ball to tie up the game. Dockett proceeded to argue with safety Kerry Rhodes on the field.

It was reported that Dockett leaned in to spit in Rhodes' face in the heat of the moment. Dockett later apologized to Rhodes for his actions but stands his ground when it comes to fighting against handing pionts over to the Jets.

"It's something that I don't believe in, something that I didn't understand,'' Dockett said of the decision. ''It was frustrating at the time. At the end of the day, I am never, never going to lay down and quit. I've been playing football for over 20 years. I've given this organization, I've given Florida State, I've given my high school everything I've got. I love the game. I play with passion and I'll never quit.''

Dockett will attempt to appeal the $200,000 fine.
