2 more Steelers fined over Titans game

Two Steelers were fined for their involvement in a fight near the start of Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Receiver Hines Ward and guard Chris Kemoeatu were each fined $5,000 by the NFL for separate offenses during a skirmish between the teams following the first play from scrimmage in Nashville.

Ward told the Post-Gazette he was fined for "excessive face-masking" and Kemoeatu said he was fined for spearing after he said he came to Ward's defense. The scuffle among a group of players broke up after an incomplete pass to Ward on the right side.

"It was an incomplete pass, but the guy picked it up and I just held it and the next thing you know, he punches me with the ball," Ward said. "I almost fell, but I grabbed his facemask; everybody was grabbing facemasks.

"The next thing you know, I'm trying to defend myself off three big men."

His own big man, Kemoeatu, came in to help.

"There were two or three dudes going after Hines," Kemoeatu said. "I just got the first dude."

Kemoeatu and the Titans player Ward thought hit him, defensive tackle Tony Brown, were each penalized for personal fouls, canceling each other out.

Steelers linebacker James Harrison also came away with a $5,000 fine from that game for body-slamming Titans quarterback Vince Young on a sack.
More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

He was only fined $5000 also. Which is lame, he threw a punch later in the game also. He is also refusing the pay the fine

Wow, I'm not sure he'll have much success refusing to pay that fine.

I guess getting embarassed by Hines wasn't bad enough for him---made me laugh when he started the whole mess and Hines yanked off his helmet embarassing him.
