Is Meriweather's $50,000 fine by you?
Want to a real-world idea of how much Brandon Meriweather's $50,000 fine will hurt his wallet?
Check out Page 2's "Crunch the Fine" converter to see what the NFL's punishment for Meriweather's helmet-to-helmet launch into Baltimore Ravens tight end Todd Heap would feel like to normal folks.
Plug in your annual salary, and you'll be told what your commensurate fine would be.
Meriweather's not the only penalized player you can compare marks with.
Others include Cincinnati Bengals receiver Terrell Owens for his illegal tweet, Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas for faking an injury and Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson for boarding Buffalo Sabres winger Jason Pominville (haven't typed that name in a while).
