“Some of the things you wish wouldn’t happen. But good calls and bad calls are part of the game. You’ve got to live with that one, the good and the bad.” [/quote]
Some pretty benign comments to warrant a $20k fine.
As much as I love the NFL, my biggest problems with it are things like this and end zone celebrations being controlled by the league office. Let the players voice their opinions… I don’t think it’s going to hurt the leagues ratings or credibility one bit.
For a league that brands itself on toughness and manliness they sure don’t take a little criticism very well.
Just one example in a very long list of things over the last few seasons.
