Talking Farrior fined for flipping the bird.....

Quote:
Steelers linebacker Farrior fined for obscene gesture
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Thursday, September 18, 2008


Steelers linebacker James Farrior has been fined $7,500 by the NFL for making an obscene finger gesture at Browns fans last Sunday.

Farrior made the gesture in the third quarter in of the Steelers' 10-6 win over Cleveland.

"I thought it was going to be more," Farrior said, "so I can't even complain."

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_588932.html

Anybody want to start a collection to help him pay it?

Seriously, I'd prefer our guys have more self control.....these things could cost us a game someday.

But in this case, I'm willing to give him some slack.

And fatass gets a pass for hitting Ben about 1/2 hour after he threw the ball and despite one of his teammates saying they were going to make late hits, fines be damned. Goodell sucks.

Yup, seems fair. Farrior flips off a bunch of drunk and mindless idiots, and gets fined, meanwhile a 400 lb goon is trying to knock our 100 million dollar QB out of the game and gets....nothing.

Way to prioritize, NFL.

It's not that he just sucks, It's who he's sucking.

yeah I agree about the cheap hit on Ben. and I don't understand why Woodley got a penalty on Anderson.

Hey, it was in Cleveland, right?

I think this is ridiculous! I replayed game tape, he did not flip them off, he was only letting them know they are number one in his mind. Number one what, now that still needs to be determined.

I didn't see this during the game and was really pissed they didn't show a reply of why Steelers had gotten a taunting penalty.
When I heard the reason I was like.. OH I see....

Goodell's an effing joke...He talks about protecting QBs from hits like fatass Rodgers did but I guess he was only talking about QBs whose last names start with B or M

I'm still amazed the azzclown didn't ban Pollard for life and demand his first born child for "The Injury".
