Bush fined $5,000 for taunting Urlacher

A week after Reggie Bush wagged his finger at Brian Urlacher, the NFL wagged back.


Bush

The league fined the New Orleans Saints running back $5,000 for taunting Urlacher at the end of his 88-yard touchdown reception in the NFC Championship Game on Jan. 21, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported.

Bush wagged his finger at the trailing Urlacher shortly before crossing the goal line with a somersault jump.

Bush was not penalized by officials on the play and apologized to head coach Sean Payton immediately after the incident.

The Bears outscored the Saints 23-0 after the incident and won the game 39-14 to advance to the Super Bowl against the Indianapolis Colts on Feb. 4.

Reggie shouldna done it - no excuses there. He is FAR too good for that.
BUT
(or BUTT if you prefer)
I think the decision stinks.

It just wasn't Saints day.

A fair fine by me. Poor judgement and I'm sure it won't happen again. I just want to know what FOX gets fined for the "F^@% Da Eagles" shot.

I know now for sure we didn't stand a chance in that game
and I don't have to wonder why hardly any flags were thrown
against them.

You're not referring to the way their offensive line was holding on just about every single play are you? :P

I think people get confused with a celebration dance and a taunt (finger pointing ect.). Celebrating is one thing but pointing, trying to show someone up is something totally different.
