Titans’ Coach Cecil Gives Refs the Ol’ One Finger Salute

Something tells me Chuck can expect a “Hawaiian peace sign” from Mrs. Cecil to be coming his way, as he will likely pay a 6-figure fine for shooting the bird at officials after his defense was cited for a neutral zone infraction during yesterday’s loss to Denver.

A rundown of similar offenses:

  1. September 16, 2009: Titans owner Bud Adams shows referees his best Stone Cold Steve Austin impression, dual-wielding multiple birds from the comfort of the owner’s box.  The next day, he writes an official apology and a check for $250,000 (!!).  One year later, he’ll hear Chuck Cecil shout, “I learned it from YOU!”
  2. November 13, 2009: Chad Ochocinco is fined $20,000 for carrying a dollar bill on the field in an mock-bribe during a Coach’s Challenge.
  3. February 3, 2010: The Commish lets Rex Ryan’s off-duty bird fly at a non-NFL event in Miami, but his own Jets fine him a cool $50,000 anyway.
Might as well just send Goodell a blank check for this one, especially since the Titans as a team are now repeat-offenders.  Next time, save some scratch and give ‘em “the toe” instead.
