Default T.O. Fined for Patriot mocking celebration

Quote:
IRVING – Terrell Owens' end zone celebration has cost him $7,500.

The NFL fined Owens on Wednesday for violating Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1 of the official league rules that state, "possession or use of foreign or extraneous object(s) that are not part of the uniform during the game on the field or the sideline, or using the ball as a prop."


Owens used the football to simulate a camera Sunday in Miami, as he mocked New England's illegal video taping of the New York Jets' defensive coaches in Week 1.

"I'm like [Bill] Belichick," Owens said. "I misinterpreted the rules."

Last season, Owens was fined by the league for a touchdown celebration at Washington, in which he faked being asleep after it was reported that he could not stay awake in meetings.

"Man, next thing, we're going to be playing rugby," Owens said. "Can't even use the football for nothing anymore. Dude, it's like they're trying to find any way to take fun out of the game. I'm kind of limited right now in what I can do."

"Im like Bill Belichick. I misinterpreted the rules."


Stealing a line from Jim Rome:

If T.O. wasn't the worst person in the world, he'd easily be the best. LOL...

I think the fine is BS.

I missed the Washington one.

I think a penalty flag was enough.

Did Chad Johnson get fined for the HoF jacket celebration?

So T.O. gets fined for using a football as a prop, but Ocho Cinco does not get fined for "possession or use of foreign or extraneous object(s) that are not part of the uniform during the game on the field or the sideline"?

Yep.

Chad does it, and it is labled as "funny".



I think Goodell is doing too much.

I understand that the dance was somewhat tasteless, but I found it hilarious.

IMO it's relatively a sad commentary on the NFL's [in]ability to make fun of itself.

The NFL is just playing favorites.

Chad Johnson is a "nice" guy so rules dont apply to him.

But Terrell Owens is a "bad" guy so he gets fined.

He has no time to deal with Ocho Cinco because all of the other Bengals players are in front of him in line

If I was TO (and it pains me to say this because I cannot stand this man) I'd sue the NFL over the fine, damages, and legal fees and I'd use the fact that Chad Johnson didn't get fined for the HOF jacket as evidence.

Maybe I wouldn't win but I'd make them go through the motions. Somebody needs to put these guys in their place and bring some perspective back to the NFL. The fact that the person doing it would be Terrell Owens would just be icing on the cake.

I dont know about suing.

I would definitely appeal the fine & use the Chad Johnson situation as a reason why.

The reason Chad didnot get fined is because he did it on the sideline versus on the field or the endzone.

Maybe the NFL thinks it's just classless.

We don't have any showboats on the Texans, and I have had a blast for six seasons now. I'm not sure some 'look at me' celebration is going to enhance my enjoyment or increase the fun factor.

Bingo! And we have a winner with factual information.

The NFL is not playing favorites. TO used the ball as a prop. End of story.
