How much money should Lions OL Dominic Raiola be fined for his inappropriate words?

Dominic Raiola went off on the University of Wisconsin Marching Band this weekend when the Lions played the Green Bay Packers, even though he owned up to the words which were horrible, Raiola gave an apology.

“My interaction with the Wisconsin Marching Band was inappropriate,” Raiola said. “I apologize to those I offended along with all of the members of Wisconsin’s marching band. I also apologize to the Lions’ organization and my teammates.

“I understand the standards to which we should conduct ourselves, and my actions Sunday fell dramatically short of those standards.”

Raiola is famous for his amazing gestures and words. In 2008, he was fined $7,500 after making a gesture at Lions fans after a loss that dropped the team to 0-13. In 2010, he was fined $15,000 for a verbal altercation in Miami with a fan, including an obscene gesture.

My question is how much will get fined for trash talking?  I mean he did say he would stick an instrument in a person’s personal area?  I think 15,000 is a minimum, what do you think?
