    Shanahan fined 20 Gs

    Broncos | Shanahan Fined
    Fri, 23 Sep 2005 11:34:29 -0700

    Len Pasquarelli, of, reports Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan has been fined $20,000 by the NFL for criticizing game officials following the Week 2 20-17 win over the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Sept. 18. Officials negated a 61-yard punt return for a touchdown by Broncos rookie CB Darrent Williams because Denver had too many players on the field for an early celebration. Shanahan criticized the call, saying the penalty was "a horrible call" and added that "you don't see a lot of calls like that in high school."

    Good point PPE. But I understand why they have to do it. If they didn't do it there would just be free reign on the officials after every game.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    :lol: the refs already want to be hurt most of the games by one of the teams, good thing the NFL, when they fine people they fine them a ton of money, or there would be some riots on the refs

    Thanks Josdin

    This has to be the saddest, biggest, most ridiculous fine ive ever seen imposed on anyone in the No Fun League.

    I saw that game and I have to say he is right. It was a pathetic call. He is also right when he says you don't even see that bull in HS football LOL,

    I guess his honesty hurt the refs feelings. It was a horrible call. I think the refs are being a little too flag happy so far this year.

    Fricken refs! I hate when they do stupid crap, at least it didn't cost the Broncos the game. As for the 20,000, Shanney had it in his back pocket! LOL
    For every question an answer! For every answer a why?
