    [size=12pt]Bud Adams apologizes for gestures[/size]

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams apologized Monday for making an obscene hand gesture while celebrating his teams' 41-17 win over Buffalo.

    WTVF-TV reported Adams flipped the middle finger on both hands from his luxury suite. The Tennessean newspaper reported Adams also was seen making the gesture again on the field after the game.

    The NFL said Monday the league was looking into the reports, and the 86-year-old Adams issued an apology a couple hours later apologizing for getting caught up in the excitement of the win.

    "I do realize that those types of things shouldn't happen," Adams said in a statement. "I need to specifically apologize to the Bills, their fans, our fans and the NFL. I obviously have a great deal of respect for Ralph Wilson and the history we have shared. I also understand there will probably be league discipline for my actions and I will accept those."

    Goodell was at the game and sat with Adams for part of it but was reportedly sitting in the stands among the fans at the time that Adams flipped the birds.
    Ummm, Goodell was sitting with the fans at the time?
    Does anyone here actually think that the NFL commish would go sit with the general public?
    In Buffalo of all places?

    Ol' Bud is a real pro at flipping the birds.
    I like the two handed gesture, than pointing, coming back with the combo flip then a single from each hand followed up by another double.


    Good to see an 86 year old man can still enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
    $250k, oh well, nice way to be remembered in Buffalo.

    Just goes to show that professional sports is so out of touch with real life, Flipping off football fans gets a fine that is $50,000 more than my house cost,



    Punching a fellow player=$7,000


    A fake bribe attempt=$20,000


    Criticizing a missed call by the ref=$20,000


    Giving the middle finger to opposing teams fans=$250,000






    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    I look at this much like the Mike Smith incident.
    Two players were fined in a sideline incident $7500, and $500 respectively.
    Mike SMit the Head Coach of the Falcons was fined $15k.
    This I believe is why the NFL is holding coaches, Front Office, and Owners to a higher standard.


    It is pretty funny
    that an 86 year old man gets that fired up to flip off the Bills in a 41-17 contest.......

    Mike Vick was only fined 10K for flipping off hometown crowd, well it was just one hand.
    Guess the owners need a union to protect them for their own cammish and stupidity
    ;D
