Morris Fined $20,000 For Swearing At An Official

On Wednesday, Bucs head coach Raheem Morris revealed that he was fined $20,000 for swearing at an official, which drew an unsportsmanlike conduct call at Miami last week while he was protesting a controversial instant replay call involving a pass thrown to WR Michael Clayton just before halftime.



"You know I got fined," Morris said. "Yes, I got fined. Again, I'm more than happy to give my money to a charity of [the NFL's] choosing. I'm excited about it. That's where I am. I'm fortunate enough to be in a society where I am able to be fined that much money and be able to give it to a charity and move on and not hold a grudge. I learned my lesson. It was my fault. I made a mistake. There's no doubt about it."



When asked how much Morris was fined by the NFL he said, "I don't know if I want to tell you that" as he walked off the podium before he grinned and looked at reporters and said, "20" - presumably as in $20,000.



Morris' fine total should not come as a surprise as Cincinnati WR Chad Ochocinco was fined $20,000 for joking about bribing an official with a dollar bill two weeks ago during a game.
