Odell Beckham Fined $12,154 for Dog Celebration vs. Eagles :bonk:


 :coffee: ......
Giants receiver Odell Beckham’s crude celebration last weekend cost him $12,154 in the form of a fine from the NFL, according to multiple reports.

That’s the standard fine amount for a celebration that the NFL deems to have crossed the line. Beckham’s teammate Evan Engram was docked the same amount for his Week 2 crotch-grab, as was Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree for an overzealous Key & Peele-inspired hip thrust.

Beckham’s celebration—mimicking a urinating dog—drew a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct. He said later it was intended as a dig at Donald Trump’s comments about “son of a b----” NFL players.

Giants owner John Mara told the media that he was “very unhappy” with Beckham’s celebration and that the matter would be addressed internally. Head coach Ben McAdoo has declined to discuss Beckham’s celebration, other than to say that he dislikes the penalty forcing his team to kick off from the 20-yard line.

To much money! To much Fame! To much arrogance! To much power! To much immaturity!  Think they can do and get away anything! Of course that applies to only a small percentage of our athletes but, we have to read about this stuff to often. They need to be punished more harshly.

I'm absolutely agree with you

Crown Bank sues Adrian Peterson over $2.4 million loan

Minneapolis-based Crown Bank is suing former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, claiming Peterson defaulted on a loan and still owes $600,000.

According to the lawsuit, Peterson borrowed $2.4 million in May 2016 but defaulted in October of the same year. Under a forbearance agreement with Crown, he paid back most of the loan and has asked for more time. In the lawsuit, the bank says Peterson “failed to comply with Crown Bank’s demands," so it's seeking the rest of what's owed, plus interest.

What a can of worms...

I believe that the NFL players will very soon agree that displays of civil disobedience during the national anthem (which is what we are talking about) will end because it has proved to be counter-productive to the message they players were trying to send.

However, I also think players will continue to look for opportunities to "express themselves" and "exercise their first amendment rights" during the game.  How long do you think it will be until we get a black power salute instead of a touchdown dance?

I hope Roger Goodell and the NFL Players Association can figure out how to keep politics off the TV broadcasts or they are going to piss off a lot of people.

That's the prob with all these "activist types". Can't do it on their own time, it has to be continually in everyone's face
 24/7 until ya wanna smack 'em upside the head...or worse.  What makes it worse, are places that promote it...like this town. Almost daily it's an on TV, front page paper, in the news push for LGBTQ or whatever they're called rights, BLM rights, more diversity, etc. That's totally out of line and just makes things worse, IMO.   :angry:

There was a time here when we were told by MAYO we COULDN'T wear our little American flag pins on our uniforms, because they didn't want to OFFEND FOREIGN PATIENTS.....!!! Fact! That sh** lasted for a short while, as a group went to admin and threatened to hit the news and some lawyers with it... MAYO didn't want THAT getting out. :doah:
I was glad when I was outta there and donned my Sheriff's uni with the big flag on the sleeve.  :happy1:

Yup Elliot is a pig.  Again another kid who was allowed to do anything he wanted as long as he scored TD's.  I think he may start his 6 game suspension this week. Not sure though.

This one will be fun to watch.  If he wins, he could blow everything up.  The owners better hope there is no paper or private message email trail to suggest they explicitly blackballed him.

Kaepernick hopes to invalidate the CBA through collusion grievance

Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL alleging collusion in relation to his ongoing unemployment. Eventually, we’ll explain what he needs to prove, and what he doesn’t need to prove, in order to show that collusion occurred. For now, let’s focus on what he wants to do.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Kaepernick wants to trigger termination of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Article 69, Section 2 of the CBA allows for the agreement to be terminated prematurely in the event of proof of collusion. Under Article 17, Section 16(c) of the CBA, termination can arise from only one incident of collusion involving only one player if there is clear and convincing evidence of a violation.

The ramifications would be enormous, and historical. Kaepernick could give all players a tremendous piece of leverage, moving up the expiration of the contract by more than three years and forcing the owners back to the bargaining table.

Former NFL player Sean Gilbert proposed, in connection with his effort to become the NFLPA’s executive director, the potential termination of the CBA in early 2015, based on collusion arising from the funding rule applicable to guaranteed contracts. Gilbert did not win, and the collusion case was never filed.
