Greg Olsen was calling for a stiff penalty or even suspension for Vontaze Burfict, but the Bengals safety got little more than a slap on the wrist.
#Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict fined $25K for twisting ankles of Cam Newton, Greg Olson. Will be summoned to league office next infraction

This is hardly the message Panther players and their fans were looking for, especially for a guy that appeared to be intentionally trying to hurt his peers. To me this amounts to 30 minute after-school detention. Will that 30 minutes really prevent you from being late to class again? No.
