    Titans owner fined 250 k for middle finger

    NFL fines Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams $250K for flipping his middle fingers - ESPN

    i think he gave 5 middle fingers. that's 50 k per gesture. it really is the no fun league when an 86 year old who may be senile gets fined a quarter mil for doing something done on every playground in america.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    That is dumb. I found it hilarious. It's good to visibly see an owner passionate about his team.

    Re: Titans owner fined 250 k for middle finger

    If a player did this, he'd probably get fined like $20,000. How is it fair to fine a guy $250,000 just because he has the money?

    The guy was just getting back at the Bills for their ridiculous comeback in the '92/'93 post-season.

    You think they would have had to have been "even" after the Music City Miracle...
