After the NFL got through apologizing for the ‘errors’ made by the officiating crew in the 49ers come from behind victory on Sunday against the Giants, the NFL went ahead with what is becoming a time honored tradition, fining Terrell Owens $10 000.
Owens was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, which not coincidentally was also what he was fined for. The play came at the end of the game after Owens finally lost his cool. Owens was the subject of cheap shots and trash talk for most of the day.
The Giants were also fined, a total of $17 500. Two of their players, Shaun Williams and Omar Stoutmire were subjected to the fines.
