Charles Woodson Punched Dave Thomas, Avoids Ejection, Will be Fined
Packers safety Charles Woodson took a swing at Saints tight end Dave Thomas in Thursday night’s season opener and somehow managed to avoid ejection. What’s even more stunning is that the event took place right in front of a referee. Woodson was penalized for the play but he should have been tossed. The Pro Bowl defensive back admits he lost his cool on the play. He should be happy he didn’t get thrown out the way other players who have thrown punches have been. The referee may have missed the play, but the NFL won’t. A fine is assuredly coming.
