Apparently the cost of pretending to moon a group of cheeseheads has its price.

FOXSports.com has learned the league has fined Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss $10,000 for his controversial taunt of the Lambeau crowd this weekend.

After scoring a fourth-quarter touchdown Moss pretended to drop his pants, moon the crowd and then rubbed his backside against the goalpost.

The league didn't want to hit Moss with a major fine or suspension out of concern that such a move would simply bring more attention to an ugly incident, one that NFL execs hope just goes away.

What\'s sad is that Moss only gets a 10K fine for that horses--t, and Lynch gets fined 75K for doing his job. Sure the WR was unprotected and Lynch hit him real hard, and probably led with his head, but a split decision in a football game is different to me than what Moss did. That was intentional and required some forethought. Sad.

Honestly, I am upset they fined him at all. He pretended to moon them, which we all know now the Pack fans do to them EVERY time they leave Lambeau, and they do it bare assed. Also, he didn\'t rub his crack on the pole, he kinda wiggled back and forth on it and his teammates jumped in. Once I found out the Lambeau fans do it to them, I saw it as him getting some payback. It didn\'t hurt anyone. True, he\'s a player and he shouldn\'t do it, but we are all human. I know if I am playing ball and someone is heckling me all day I am gonna shove it in their face when I do something. Human nature. Especially if it has been going on for years. How long can you hold that in? Lynch coulda paralyzed that guy with that hit, a lot different from rubbing some opposing fans\' celebration back in their faces. Just my two cents.

People still don\'t get it. Am I missing something?
The moon wasn\'t offensive, that was somewhat funny.
Flossing his crack up and down the goalpost is what was vile, disgusting and offensive.
I must be missing something. Did anyone not see that part?

Funny as your statement is Danno I didn\'t see the \"flossing of any crack.\" I saw him rub his fanny on the pole, back and forth, twice. Didn\'t look all that bad to me. It was more more cheek than crack is what I am saying.

Had he actually shown any part of his ass, had he actually went up and down on the pole instead of left to right(that woulda been crack flossing), had he brought in midgets and circus freaks, I would have drawn the line. Can\'t have that in football. :P

30K I think. A LOT more than 10K.

Now THAT disgusts me. But they will explain it off by calling Joe\'s pre-meditated, even though it was infinitely more creative and definitely less crass. But I am a person who thinks no celebrations should be banned so........
