Alex Boone has fine rescinded

11/21/2013

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Alex Boone retaliated against Alameda Ta'amu and was fined.

Now he has his redemption.

According to a source close to the situation, Boone’s $7,875 fine was rescinded upon his appeal. He was fined for slapping Ta’amu after the Arizona defensive lineman kicked him late in the Oct. 12 San Francisco home win. Ta’amu was fined $10,000 for his actions. It is not known if he appealed.

In other 49ers notes:

Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews told ESPN.com his fine from Week 1 against the 49ers was reduced from $15,000 to $7,500. His late him on 49ers’ quarterback Colin Kaepernick caused a melee.

The Bay Area News Group is reporting the 49ers will not host any Monday or Thursday night games next year -- their first season Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara -- because of traffic reasons.

The quote of the day comes via 49ers’ coach Jim Harbaugh, sticking up for Kaepernick, who has endured some recent criticism: “I think he’s doing a heck of a job. I guess I’d be puzzled to why people would think that. What’s most important is what we see. I’m puzzled to why you or anybody else thinks that.”
