Seahawks lose 2 days of minicamp practices
SEATTLE, WA - It's a good thing Pete Carroll is rich cause he just gave a big chunk of change over for a rule's violation.

The Seattle Seahawks and Head Coach Pete Carroll were collectively fined over $300,000 on Tuesday for violating the League's no-contact rules for offseason practices. The punishment is apparently for a June 18th practice in which Corner Richard Sherman and Receiver Phil Bates got into a scuffle, and TV reports of the altercation prompted the NFLPA's investigation. In addition to the fines, the Hawks will lose two days of minicamp practices for the 2015 season.

Now the question is how much this will affect the team. If you take into consideration that the team was fined and docked two minicamp practice days last year as well and then went on to win the super bowl, Seattle fans shouldn't be too worried.
