Well, paranoid Steelers supporters can’t say their team is the only one that has to pay fines for hits to the head too.

Cardinals tackle Jeremy Bridges was fined $20,000 for unnecessary roughness/hitting an opponent in the head, according to Darren Urban of the team’s website. It was his fifth such unnecessary roughness penalty since 2009.

The team’s linebacker Clark Haggans was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness and hitting an opponent in the head/neck area.

Clearly, there must be a large-scale conspiracy against former Steelers too.
