The NFL has come down with a ruling from above on the Jim Schwartz - Jim Harbaugh pissing match/not a fist fight, essentially saying "No blood, no foul, no fine."
I wish there had been blood, it'd be a better story.
Schwartz vs. Harbaugh:
A proud, proud moment in NFL history...this is not.
When asked if there would be fines or other repercussions for the combatants, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network the following...
"Fortunately, there was no fighting and thus no basis for a fine," Aiello said. "However, both coaches told (NFL VP of football operations) Ray Anderson today that their postgame conduct was wrong and will not happen again. We believe their response is the correct one and that their postgame conduct going forward will be more appropriate."
So the NFL felt a stern talking to was all that was needed...with the threat of a more painful penalty if it ever happens again, I'm sure.
Both coaches can now go on with their lives, Harbaugh being a frat boy dick, and Schwartz a heavy metal loving hot head ready to fight at the first hint of a handshake.
