I would love to be an NFL player to make some extra cash but I would not love the way the NFL takes it away from me. The league has fined Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris $12,154, according to Pro Football Talk.
His big mistake? Holding the ball and swinging it like it was a golf club and then doing a fist pump a la Tiger Woods.
That’s it! That’s worth $12k.
He wasn’t the only one. Chris Jones was fined $18k for his late hit / shove on Trevor Siemian. That’s a little more reasonable but still steep for what amounted to a shove.
Thank God the NFL is here to police this and think of the children.
