Report: Davis, Smith fined for conduct detrimental

Both Vontae Davis and Sean Smith missed Sunday's start against the Oakland Raiders for what coach Tony Sparano said was a "coach's decision." This, of course, is a half-truth because it doesn't explain the reason why the coach decided to keep his two starters on the bench ...

...Until now.

According to Orlando Alzugaray of 640-Sports in South Florida, both Davis and Smith were held out of their start as discipline for being late to a meeting and have also been fined for conduct detrimental to the team. Big O is also reporting that this is "at least the third time" one or both of these players is late to a meeting this year.

It is unclear the amount of the fine. I'm working on getting that to you because there is a fine schedule that NFL teams can collect from players and that follows the collective bargaining agreement.

Both Davis and Smith entered the game following the first play in which Benny Sapp and Nolan Carroll played versus Oakland.

According to the Dolphins media release, this is the first start that Davis missed this year. Smith was the starter three consecutive games before missing this start versus Oakland. He was scheduled to start against Cincinnati, saying as much on Armando and the Amigo on 640-Sports the week prior to that game, but then did not make the start. He entered the game after the first series, replacing Jason Allen and played the rest of that day.

There is a 98.3% probability we will be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs two Sundays from now.

NEXT Year, what about now,we r eliminated now .we don't need to wait 2 weeks .

TOM BRANDSTATER WILL BE THE 3 QB ON SUNDAY

We are not yet mathematically eliminated. Some fans will want to play make believe for a couple more weeks.

Who expects these NFL idiots to know how to tell time...Most of them are on "soon come time"...

Jets start a 4 game losing streak on Monday night. Not so fast my friends

the whole team is treading water mando, lets see how long they can stay afloat. hopefully, the rest of the season...

Vontae and Smith are nowhere near the caliber of Surtain and Madison, especially Smith, he hasn't proven anything yet and could end up getting replaced.

Been a fins fan for over 30 years so you would think the big win over oakland would make you fell great, but somehow knowing this team you can feel something bad is about to happen i hope not but------------?

I don't mind the discipline. Nip it in the bud before it gets outta hand.

Btw, what's up with NJ guy? haven't seen him here in forever, what happened?

Niether of the two kids is dumb? Oscar, I'm afraid you is dumb.

Send a message to these clowns. We need to send a precedent. This would NEVER happen on a Parcells coached team. Why is it happening now.

SS and VD all of a sudden are premadonas? They might be looking for a job next season if they keep that crap up. I say keep them out the entire game next time they are late for meetings - the only excuse would be they were watching game film. LOL.
