    Ok. His bosses slapped a big fine on him for reacting in kind to some Miami fans, because I ASSUME, he should have sought higher ground.

    My question (and no offense to you who live in the sunshine state):

    Where can I send the guy a donation of $50? :supergrin: Not that he needs it or anything...

    I didnt see any problem with it really. I didnt follow to story or anything, but from what little I hear the guy was badgering him and wouldn't quit. I probably would have done the same thing.

    Gee, I hope he didn't hurt the little bird when he flipped it. :whistling:

    All joking aside,that's a low class jesture in response to a low class jesture.

    Maybe former Dolphins' linebacker Bryan Cox was in the stands.



    From NY Times, October 3, 1993:

    ...Bryan Cox was also fined for spearing -- spearing the air above him with the middle finger of each hand while coming out of the tunnel at Rich Stadium before last Sunday's kickoff.

    "I don't like the Buffalo Bills as a team, I don't like them as people, I don't like the city, I don't like the people in the city," he was quoted in USA Today as saying in the days before that game. "And I don't like their organization."

    When the Bills fans shouted, loudly and profanely, their dislike for Cox, he responded with the gestures seen on the NBC network.

    With an $800,000 salary, Cox described his fine as inconsequential and predicted that if he had it to do over again, he probably would.

    K$50 wasn't enough. He's supposed to be a professional and a leader, not a low class POS who can't control his emotions or act like a responsible adult.
