Nickell Robey-Coleman will not appeal fine for controversial hit
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman won’t be appealing the fine he received for the helmet-to-helmet hit that he somehow got away with late in the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship.
Robey-Coleman was hit with a significant fine for his hit on New Orleans Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis, and he admitted that he has no plans to fight that decision.
Nickell Robey-Coleman said he will pay the $26,739 fine and not appeal. On controversy: "It’s the league’s call, the ref’s call. I have nothing to do with that play. I made a football play. The ref made his call and there’s nothing else I could do about it. That’s their call."

It’s probably not a surprise considering Robey-Coleman has openly admitted that he committed a foul on the play and got away with it. Everybody knows it now. It’s just that a fine is going to do nothing to placate the angry Saints and their fans.
