This makes sense ... in a totally nonsensical, bizarro sort of way:
After seeing the videotape of Terrell Owens' latest touchdown celebration, the NFL office wasn't laughing. Owens said Wednesday he was fined "a good chunk of money" -- which he later defined as thousands of dollars -- for a celebration that included him using the goal post and football to poke fun at the New England Patriots' spying scandal during Dallas' 37-20 victory over Miami this past Sunday.Jeebus, that's weak. Yeah, because it's Terrell Owens' fault that the Patriots got caught cheating. I wonder if TO would've also been fined if he pretended to buy HGH during his touchdown celebration.
I understand NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is all about zero tolerance, but honestly, what's the problem here? Is schadenfreude a finable offense? (Answer: No ... not yet, anyway). Apparently, Owens was fined $7,500 for using the goal post as a prop. Yeah, good one.
At least the league is uniform in their punishments, though: I mean Chad Johnson was severely penalized for that silly "FUTURE H.O.F. 20??" sideline spectacle. Oh, wait, Ocho Cinco wasn't in the end zone so it makes it legit. Or something.
