    Jackson Fined $5,000 For Tossing Ball Into Stands

    Jackson fined $5,000 for tossing ball into stands

    They don’t call it the “No Fun League” for nothing…

    St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson has been fined $5,000 for throwing the football into the stands Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome after scoring on a 1-yard run in the final minute.

    A fine, OK; that’s the rule. But $5,000?

    Wow…

    they cost a hell of a lot more than $12, but also a hell of a lot less than $5,000

    Wow. What a joke.

    This league is getting worse to watch as the days go by. No more fun in the game. Just straight football.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    Wow that was exactly what I thought when I read the title. He was just giving the Rams fans who showed up something to cheer about after the touchdown. Roger Goodell, C'mon Man.

    Here's what Jackson had to say:

    Jackson says he'll pay fine

    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    12/04/2009

    One of the biggest surprises in last week's loss to Seattle was that Rams running back Steven Jackson didn't perform his "rolling the dice" touchdown celebration after scoring late in the fourth quarter.

    "Well, if I roll the dice, you guys would say, 'Why is he rolling the dice when he's down?'" Jackson said. "Right? Right?"

    The Rams were trailing 27-10 with 44 seconds to play before Jackson's score.

    "If I did a Donnie Avery (dance), I would've been in trouble," he joked. "Actually, I just wanted to show the few fans that were still there — give someone a souvenir. I knew I was going to get fined for it. I just wanted to give somebody a ball."

    It turned out to be a $5,000 souvenir. That was Jackson's fine from the No Fun League for tossing the ball into the stands at the Edward Jones Dome. Seems like a steep fine for trying to make a fan happy.

    "If you want to argue for me, I'm glad," Jackson joked.

    Jackson said he won't try to appeal the fine, saying no appeal exists for such situations. So ...

    "Five grand it is," he said.

    dont know why this is a surprise to everyone, this rule has been in place for a long time and the fines have been about the same.
