Default Re: AP: Steelers fans fined for booing

It really is getting ridiculous. And I hate to bring up conspiracy theories but I honestly do believe that at least this year, the Steelers are being targeted. I mean, Harrison gets a $75,000 fine for a legal hit, and yet Seymour only has to pay $25k for punching Ben in the face. Are you kidding me?

Moreover... today Brad Childress was fined $35k for criticizing the officials after the Vikes game. They fined him $35k. Yep, you heard that right... according to the NFL, its worse to criticize the officials than to walk up and punch another player.

Could you imagine if Goodell was the commissioner of the NHL? Good God that would be a nightmare.

Third Rail,
I found your satire rather amusing. But I'll offer one piece of advice for future reference. Since you're being satirical, I wouldn't use an actual news organization as the "source." If you want to use The Associated Press, satirize that as well ... The Disassociated Press, or something along that line. Other than that, good job.

Geez, you act like you work in the news industry or something.

And that, my friends, is exactly why Tomlin didn't say anything about the officiating publicly after the game...

Thanks, yeah I was thinking that too after I posted it, but I doubt the AP will come after me, lol. I'm probably going to start a fake news thread and maybe a blog for this type of stuff soon, so I'll come up with something that works.

Let me know when you get that up and running. I'd really be interested in ignoring it

But if you ignore it, then how would you be able to make smartass comments? I wouldn't want to deprive you from further opportunities to act like a shithead.

Sounds like a plan. Run with it.
