Saban: Fines for Dolphins pair not fair

DAVIE, Fla. (Oct. 3, 2005) -- Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban took exception to fines imposed by the NFL against Wes Welker and Tebucky Jones.

Receiver Welker and safety Jones were fined $5,000 apiece for penalties they committed Sept. 25 against Carolina. Welker was penalized for an illegal crack-back block, Jones for grabbing the facemask of quarterback Jake Delhomme on a sack.

"Football is football," Saban said. "When guys don't do things that are intentional to hurt somebody, which neither one of those things were, I think it's a little ridiculous. And it happens every week. It's not fair to the players."
