Austin Pettis Tells Niles Paul To Appeal His Fine

One of the more maddening things about the Redskins' 17-10 victory over the Rams on Sunday was the fact that the Redskins kept getting called for penalties running into Rams punt returner Austin Pettis, even though Pettis never signaled a fair catch. One of those penalties resulted in a $20,000 fine for Niles Paul for a helmet-to-helmet hit.

Many people feel bad for Paul getting docked that much money. Apparently, that list includes Pettis himself, who told the Redskins' receiver to appeal. Here's the exchange on Twitter.
