Titans' Nickey fined for BUMPING a Ref!
Oh hell no! We all know how I feel about Officials. They suck.
The NFL fined Titans safety Donnie Nickey $2,500 for making contact with an official during last Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Nickey said he was body-slammed by Chargers offensive lineman Scott Mruczkowski at the end of a special-teams play, and when he got up to retaliate he made contact with referee Bill Leavy instead. Leavy ejected Nickey.
Nickey said Mruczkowski "pushed my head in the ground and just went over the line of being dirty. … I got up real quick and I inadvertently hit the ref. I didn't see the ref … and he just got too close.''
Ray Anderson, the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, was at the game.
"I think he saw exactly what happened and took that into account,'' Nickey said.
Just another reason I can't stand the refs.
