Belichick receives $50,000 fine

Baltimore and New England faced off last week in what should have been a memorable game for the play on the field and not the actions of a coach after play was over. Baltimore and The Patriots went back and forth and ultimately the Ravens were able to win in the last seconds of the game on a field-goal that looked like it may have been no good.

 

The Patriots coach, Bill Belichick certainly thought it was no good and wanted an answer from the replacement referees. In trying to do so, he grabbed a referee as the Ref was jogging into the locker room. This was met with a $50,000 fine later in the week, and it was confirmed that the field made by the officials was the correct one. Belichick seems to be a man that can get away with a lot when it comes to his antics.

 

After the game his antics continued as when meeting with the media he gave a less than acceptable post-game interview. This man is usually extra secretive and blunt with media while being as vanilla and boring as possible. On this day, he even stepped that up a notch giving less then ever and redirecting media elsewhere. Bill has no business getting any money in his contract for his media relations and should have been checked harder for his on-field antics of grabbing the official. It would appear he is exempt from more serious punishment from the league and I hope I am not the only one that sees this.
