The National Football League has come down hard on Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Neville Gallimore, who made the ill-advised decision to kick New York Giants offensive tackle Justin Pugh during their game last weekend. 

He's been fined a total of $9,754 after having been ejected from the game for his actions; he was also called for unnecessary roughness.

For Pugh, he knew that Gallimore was going to be lighter in the wallet. 

“Look, he hit the quarterback late, I took exception to it, I hit him, I shouldn’t have done that when he was on the ground, pushed him and he kicked me,’’ Pugh said. “I’ve gotten in so many fights in my career, I’m not gonna cost myself money. He’s gonna get a FedEx so I feel bad for him on that. I don’t want a guy to lose money. But you don’t kick somebody on a football field.”

The Cowboys are on the road tomorrow and looking to improve their record to 7-3 when they take on the Carolina Panthers.
