Pete Carroll

— Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he was “disappointed” with the NFL’s decision to hand out fines and take away a 2017 fifth-round draft pick as punishment for allowing excessive contact during a non-contact organized team activity in early June.

The Seahawks, who also ran afoul of the rule in 2014, were fined $400,000 and will lose a week of OTAs — for which players still will be paid — in 2017. Carroll was fined an additional $200,000.

The league said Carroll was responsible for the practices and needs to intervene when “prohibited conduct occurs.”

“We’re trying to do this really well and trying to be great at it, and I was really disappointed it came to this. But they’ve got to do what they’ve got to do,” Carroll said. “We’re going to continue to work really hard to do this really well. We practice hard around here, we always have, and we have to do it right. We’ve made strong efforts to do that, but we’re still working at it.”

Carroll said in the incident in question, on June 6, two younger players collided while pursuing the ball during a drill, causing both to be injured.

“They both got banged in the head pretty good,” Carroll said.

The league and the NFL Players Association reviewed the practice video and agreed the team violated the contact rule.

— Tim Tebow began his stint with the Mets’ instructional league team, working out with the squad in Port St. Lucie, Florida, in front of hundreds of fans.

Wearing No. 15 (the same number he wore as a quarterback), Tebow displayed some power during batting practice but also showed that he has a long way to go.

“It was a lot of fun,” Tebow told reporters. “It was great. It was great to be on a team. It was great to just go through a warmup and go through drills, just have fun, take BP, get to know all the guys, try to remember as many names as possible.”

Tebow, who received a $100,000 bonus when he signed with the Mets earlier this month, has not played organized baseball since his junior year of high school.

“It was one of the hardest decisions of my life to choose football over baseball,” Tebow said. “There were a lot of times at Florida where I thought about going out and starting baseball. And then over the course of the last few years it’s something I’ve thought about a bunch.

“My first sporting activity, I played for the White Sox at Normandy Baseball Park. I didn’t want to put down a bat since.”

Meanwhile, Tebow jerseys started appearing on the Mets’ online shop over the weekend and were listed as the top seller on Fanatics and MLB’s online shop Monday.

(NSFW, language)

What kind of service worker-abusing nutjob is this lady, anyway? I mean, she looks the part. She’s got the assless, raggedy, consignment shop jeans and ratty hair of your garden variety fast food restaurant crack pot. Plus the foul mouth and utter lack of self-awareness the role requires.

But then she’s got that weird, put-on, debutante accent to go with it. She talks like she comes from money in the San Fernando Valley or someplace, not the apartment above a Subway she’s been living in for six years. Shut your eyes for a second and you’d think she’s abusing the wait staff at her daddy’s country club, not some Subway sandwich artist.

I mean, I suppose that somewhere buried underneath all the insane rantings of a lunatic she has an underlying point. Maybe they should have put up a sign that says “We’re out of meatball subs.” But it would have saved her maybe three seconds out of her life that it took for her to ask and be told they’re out of meatball subs. Which doesn’t exactly justify the three minute mental breakdown she suffered making her point.

All I can say is, I hope she’s lived alone in that apartment for six years, because nobody should be living with that.
