    saw this on the morning espn.

    GREEN BAY – Perhaps, since Mike McCarthy didn’t have a problem with linebacker Frank Zombo’s helmet-to-helmet hit on Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler on Monday night, the Packers coach will pick up the tab for the $7,500 fine Zombo received from the NFL for the roughing-the-passer personal foul penalty he received.

    not many coaches would do this so a cudo to mccathy

    Hmm, kind of interesting. Wonder if he rolled up to him and handed him an envelope with a thank you sticker on it. LOL

    Zombo, gotta love the name and that he is making some plays. Ticky Tack penalty, but that was how the refs were rolling Monday.

    Remember Buddy Ryan and the allegation he put a bounty on the Dallas Kicker. heh

    Now along with "the Claymaker", the rest of the league has to fear "the Zombo"....be afraid...be very afraid!

    Zombo sounds like it could be the name of a cheese. Someone should invent that..

    I think McCarthy is paying the fine for his own blunder at the end of the game.

    Pretty sure the league doesnt allow this. For very obvious reasons. And if they did it under the table I hope they wouldnt talk about it to the press.

    And I know he did tell the press coach Greene would help him out though.

    I like that MM paid the fine for a simple reason. I think it would effect Zombo's future playing and limit his aggressiveness, since he is one of the lowest paid players in the NFL. I think that' s a great job by MM keeping his player worried about one thing, and that's just playing ball...period!

    I think its great. I'm not sure what the league can do about it really. Either way, I think its a nice thing for MM to do for a guy who played his *** off.

    He might also want to consider giving Zombo a raise, he surely deserves one! :dirol:

    That isagood question. I thought that wasnt allowed and if anyone made reference to paying anothers fine it would result in an additional fine.
