    Sharper fined for bumping referee

    DEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings free safety Darren Sharper was fined $15,000 on Friday for bumping into an official during last week's loss at Miami.

    A league spokesman said the fine was for "impermissable physical contact with a game official. Specifically while pursuing a pass play, he ran directly toward the game official and shoved him to the ground."

    The play happened during the third quarter of Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Dolphins.

    Sharper was surprised when he found a letter from the NFL in his locker on Friday morning and called the contact accidental.

    "There's no story here," he said. "I'm going to appeal it and that money's coming right back."

    Re: Sharper fined for bumping referee

    omg! thats nuts. if the dam.n refs would stay out of the way, this would have never happend. but i guess their too busy making bs calls.... seriously, it was an accident. does anyone have a video of it? yea im sure sharper would be the one to just run up to a reff and shove him to the ground.
    : if he's going to do that, he may as well kill them and get it over with. will we ever catch a break w/ the refs?

    That's a terrible fine. I looked at the replay after the stupidass announcer flipped out about it and it was definately incidental. I hope he gets it overturned.

    Re: Sharper fined for bumping referee

    I think this is outrageous.


    Shoving? LOL! I don't remember any shoving.

    If anything, the ref should be fined for being in the way.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    that is such BS in the game during the play the refs are part of the football field so if they get in the way that is there problem all he had to do was move.
