This Week In Crazy NFL Fines

In the crazy world of NFL fines, flipping the bird is just as bad as calling your wife to tell her you’re ok.

Steelers’ S Troy Polamalu was fined $10000 this week for using a doctor’s cell phone to call his wife to tell her he was ok after being removed from a game due to a concussion. Ten thousand dollars for that.

What makes is crazy though is that Packers LB A.J Hawk, who was caught on camera giving the finger to his own sideline, was also fined ten grand. So for those keeping score at home, calling your wife to reassure her after an injury is an equal crime to flipping the bird on live TV.

It’s just absurd.
