    CFL fines player for TD tribute to Michael Jackson

    [size=13pt]CFL fines player for TD tribute to Michael Jackson[/size]

    TORONTO (AP) - The Canadian Football League fined Toronto Argonauts receiver Arland Bruce for "excessive actions" during his tribute to Michael Jackson after scoring a touchdown.

    After scoring on a 21-yard pass that put Toronto ahead 6-0, Bruce removed his helmet, shoulder pads and uniform top, then laid down in the end zone. Bruce said he was honoring the memory of Jackson by pretending to be buried.

    Referees gave Bruce two objectionable conduct penalties for his actions in the game, which the Argonauts won 30-17 on Wednesday night.

    I was there. He ended up receiving two objectionable conduct penalties that gave Hamilton better field positioning. I don't care for his celebration, but he is an awesome receiver.
