Percy Harvin wants some answers.

The Vikings wideout was slapped with a $7,500 league fine for a scuffle with Panthers defensive back Captain Munnerlyn in Minnesota's 24-21 win, the Star Tribune reported Friday.

The two got rough in the second quarter following a 5-yard scramble by Vikings rookie quarterback Christian Ponder

As the play ended, the two scrapped along the Panthers' sideline. Harvin, at one point, grabbed Munnerlyn by the facemask and moved him into the Carolina bench. The two then shoved at each other and exchanged jabs until Panthers players and officials split them up.

Harvin was called for a 15-yard personal foul penalty that put the Vikings into a fourth-and-13 hole. Munnerlyn was not penalized and has not been fined.

"Can someone please explain how I get fined and the other player gets," Harvin tweeted Friday.

Watching the tape, does Harvin have a point here?
