They are slightly different. Fines are for illegal hits. Bounty is for "knockout" hits. They are not necessarily the same (although they obviously can be!)
We actually were discussing yesterday that one reason the fines were in fact so high is that they were set to make the bounties (known to them but not discussed publicly) too trivial to bother with. I think the continued warning of the team to discontinue the illegal payouts is what caused the Commish to come down so hard.
