    The NFL's system of fines has always been very odd - in previous years, you could get dinged more money for wearing the wrong socks than you would for knocking a player out of a game with an illegal hit. But in their usual "ready-fire-aim" fashion, the league famously turned up the volume this season in the fine structure for what the league deems to be hits outside the rules.

    Even on plays uncalled by officials, the NFL's arbitrary system now hands fines out to players in a willy-nilly fashion, targets specific players openly (James Harrison(notes), please stand up), and the league seems to have little accountability when it comes to how those penalties go out.

    Courtesy of the Twitter account of Chicago Bears safety Chris Harris(notes), we now know that in the postseason, fines will go waaaaay up for equipment violations:

    I guess Daunte Robinson isn't going to write 'You Should HAVE Paid Me Rick' on his shoes this weekend then.

    Doesn't money from fines go to charity?
