    What is up with the NFL??

    I saw this and I thought it was just typical TO. Kinda stupid, but not worth fining him over. I certainly don't like TO, but man, what has this league come to??

    I mean, get over it. The NFL office is like way too important right now. It must be aweful working there. I bet everyone walks around pretending they are part of the FBI, or one of those stupid CSI shows. They all say things like, "Just the facts ma'am" and all that crap. Self important bunch of dweebs. They are going to ruin this game.

    I am really not into all the stupid celebrations, but what the hey???

    Are they just trying to be consistent? Meaning, everyone who does anything will be penalized or fined?

    Alright, then I really do want someone to burn big time for giving Fox that tape. I mean, if these fools can't even make sure that a tape does not get into the wrong hands, who are they to levy such fines against some clown who uses a football to mimic a camera???

    These people are pretty sensitive if you ask me.

    Sheese.

    What is next?

    The NFL office should really have badges that flip open like the FBI I think.

    What a bunch of self important dweebs.

    Here I am sticking up for TO, but I have to admit that he is way better than these jerks right now.

    Is it a big deal, no. Is it against the rules, yes. He used the ball as a prop, should've been 15 yds. I'm not sure a fine is automatic with that, though.

    I don't like TO but how does he get fined and Chad Johnson not?
    Also if the NFL is so powerful why dont they tell them cameramen not to show it. Like in the MLB and crowd "Participation"
    Its cause it sells tickets thats why and the NFL knows it

    I agree this is getting ridiculous.

    I'm sure the league is so concerned with the leaked tape....I wonder if we'll ever find out who did it. I won't hold my breath. :rolleyes:

    I saw what TO did. Honestly, who cares? For TO it's positively tame.

    I admit, I don't know the rule. Is it, "don't use the ball as a prop?"

    But then, if you go off on the sidelines and do all that stuff with a jacket and what not you are a-ok?

    Funny league.

    Chad Johnson's was okay because he didn't dare to desicrate the sanctity of the NFL. Owens had the audacity to poke fun at this entire joke of an ordeal. He's lucky Goddell didn't suspend him four games.

    That is just stupid.

    If he is going to fine TO for that, then he had better put something behind finding out who leaked the tape!

    Unbelieveable.

    That is what I see too. That Badell saw his mocking little show and said (as he turned red from highball rage) "he's gonna regret dat one." And poof, 7,500 was extricated.

    Give him a big hat at least. Like some kind of king crown, or pointy pooba hat. Maybe a hat like Fred Flintstone had when he was with the grand order of the Buffalo or what ever it was.

    These guys need to have uzi's and black suburbans. "oh no, the Royal Commissioner's guard is here!!!"

    The league is stupid. No Fun League, that's for sure. I enjoyed Owens' thing. I enjoy watching these celebrations. Give me a break, NFL. This is a game, played for entertainment.

    I believe Tony Dungy has enlightened us all about this....the game is actually played for the children.

    Let's not forget the children...

    With all that has gone on with the NFL, I have to say this is really sucking the joy out of this game for me. I am certainly not a TO fan by any means and I saw what he did. You know what? I laughed when I saw it.....one of the only NFL laughs of the week.

    I know no one wants to hear about the-sport-that-shall-not-be-named, but how often does Bud Selig make the news? How many of you know who he is?? Goodell is making a big mistake by interjecting himself into things the way he has these last few months. Just let the boys play ball.....
