"GREEN BAY, Wis. - Six players were fined a total of $40,000 Friday for their roles in the sideline scuffle that marred the end of the Vikings-Packers game Sunday night.

Packers defensive tackle Cletidus Hunt was not fined, despite running across the field to join the fray before the final play was over.

Antuan Edwards, Mike McKenzie and Nate Wayne of the Packers and Hunter Goodwin, Jim Kleinsasser and Chris Walsh of the Vikings were fined. All said they would appeal, except for Walsh and Wayne, who refused comment.

The Vikings were miffed that Hunt escaped punishment altogether.

"You've got a guy who comes off the field in the middle of the play, runs past the field at our bench, and he doesn't get a lick?" Kleinsasser said.

There had been some concern in Green Bay earlier in the week that Hunt might even be suspended. He can be seen on film hitting Goodwin in the face with an open hand as the fight was breaking up."
