DON'T HATE THE PLAYER: It's been an interesting year for NFL-related controversy, particulary NFL player-related controversy . . . and player ego-related controversy. And fines for player ego-related controversy.
So I would like to present this year's award for best end-zone stunt resulting in a fine by an NFL wide receiver.
"Joe Horn", you're thinking? Naw. Look down at the bottom:
"Also Tuesday, Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson was fined $10,000 by the NFL for retrieving a sign from behind a snowdrift and holding it up after a 10-yard touchdown catch Sunday. Johnson's sign read: 'Dear NFL: Please don't fine me again.' "
Mmmmm... now that's a fine worth paying. Delicious.
