04:52 PM ET 09.26 | Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had a big game last week against the Chicago Bears, when he helped the team's stagnant offense finally get off the ground. Pittsburgh still lost the game despite their efforts and Brown has lost a nice chunk of change for two penalties he received during the game. According to reports, Brown was fined more than $16,000 for two separate penalties during the Monday Night Football showdown. Brown finished the game with nine catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Don't feel too bad for Brown, however, because he signed a six-year, $43.04 million contract just over a year ago. Brown's base salary for 2013 is $650,000 and he also gets a $3.85 million bonus.

So, howabout fines for players getting DUIs, doing drugs, beating women? When's that gonna start?

Not fine-worthy, however I'm sure it has a little something with trying to placate the defensive players who get fined heavily trying to do their job.

Fineing these rich DAs will do no good -- sit them out a few games and this behaviour will change!
