sj39: Just finished rehabing. Check my locker And what I see.. A fine for throwing football in the crowd. C'Mon Man!
- Per Steven Jacksons twitter
http://twitter.com/sj39

After he scored a TD late in the game against the Seahawks, he just through the football up into the crowd and now he gets fined for it?

This league is going downhill QUICK. I can't wait to see what the fine amount is.

** Play and celebration **

That ball cost like 150 dollars. I hear players get fined all the time for it, just no one makes a big deal and that why most guys don't do it all the time.

I'm pretty sure it's been in the rules for a couple years now, if a player throws the ball in the crowd they get a fine.

He should get a fine. He could accidentally spill someones beer with those antics. He should get the death penalty for that.

Thanks, I guess I never knew that. If you ask me though, it's a pretty stupid effing rule.

This happens all of the time. I know Keith bulluck has got like 5 of these fines and The titans might average 6 alone through out a season.

It is, but they have like 36 balls per game available, and obviously by games end you don't wont to loose all 36. I'm sure if there was no fine those ball would be thrown into the stands for every TD. Also its pretty expensive to make them, and the unused balls are used the next game.

Yeah, it is nothing new. Just part of the No Fun League. At least this one makes some small amount of sense since the league loses a tangilbe asset, technically.

Does anyone know why was Chris Johnson fined last year for playing the drums after his TD?

THIS!!!! What if a guy is walking down the steps with 4 beers in his hand that just cost him $84838374747383 a beer and the ball comes and knocks the beer out. I would be pissed. Good rule ahahahhhhha :)

Lol yep, that's why the cell phone and sharpie will be classics because you can't do stuff like that anymore. Well, technically you still can if you can afford to risk the 15 yard penalty and the fine with it.

I'm sure it has more to do with hitting someone in the face with the football over it costing 150 bucks. If that was the case, they'd just ask the players to pay for the damn football. And even then, they let players keep footballs from the games all the time, whether it be someone's first TD, or 100th, or whatever it may be.

You can only buy two at a time at most stadiums because they require an ID for the drinkers. But, that would be hilarious to see on TV.

The NFL fines players if they give a ball to disabled people in wheelchairs after a TD, or if they keep souvenirs for rcd.-setting balls ...... hey, those balls cost a $150 each, the NFL is all about the $.

They fine them if they let their shirt tails come out too.
