BUCS' TRUEBLOOD FINED $7,500

Last week Buccaneers offensive lineman Jeremy Trueblood said NFL referees have attitude problems. But today he found out that even when the referees give him a break, the league office won’t.
Trueblood has been fined $7,500 for grabbing an opponent’s facemask and holding on even after the play was over against the Lions on Sunday. The fine comes even though Trueblood did not get flagged on the play.
After the game, Trueblood seemed to know he’d have a fine coming his way, saying, “I can’t catch a break.”
This is Trueblood’s fourth fine this season: He was previously fined $7,500 for throwing his helmet against the Cowboys, fined $5,000 for punching Bears defensive end Adewale Ogunleye and fined $5,000 for an unnecessary roughness penalty against the Vikings.

    man and all he did was hold on. he should have ripped his helmet off and popped him in the head a few times, he’d only had to have payed 7500 more..

    How many times will they fine this guy before he gets a suspension? It’s obvious he doesn’t learn by paying out a few grand.

    What’s funny is, I was going to make a sarcastic comment about the relationship between the two fines when this post initially hit, but then I thought “Nah, that’d be really lame”.
    So I wisened up, and didn’t bother.

    Some of you clowns need new jobs.
    The agressiveness in which True plays with has long been missing in today’s NFL. Gone are the days of tough SOB’s up front who don’t put up with any shit.
    There’s too many of you pansies on “mean guy” alert.
    Wake up ladies, this is the NFL.
