Broncos’ Omar Bolden posts his $300 cell phone fine on Instagram

Broncos rookie cornerback Omar Bolden was fined $300 for using his cell phone in a team meeting. And then he used his cell phone to tell everyone about his fine.

Bolden posted a picture on Instagram of a memo that the team posted in his locker. The memo says “Code of conduct violation” at the top and lists the violation as “Cell phone ringing during Special Teams meeting.”

According to the memo, there’s a section in the team’s code of conduct reading, “There shall be no using cell phones and similar PDAs.” The maximum fine allowed for violating that rule is $1,885, so Bolden (a fourth-round draft pick who signed a four-year, $2.57 million contract) got off relatively easy with a fine of only $300.

Under the picture, Bolden posted, “Lesson learned. . . . Lol Damm!” There’s no word on whether the Broncos will now fine Bolden for posting team information on Instagram.

    If this is the worst thing he ever does in the NFl, I think he’ll be ok! I can’t say much, because I’ve forgotten to turn my phone off at work (once), and at the movies (once). However, I wonder if the irony of using his phone to take and post a picture of the fine for his phone ringing in a team meeting is lost on him?

    So now he’s posting a personal/team document on the internet. Lesson not learned.

    I used to remember when football players were men, instead of 16-year-old girls posting everything in their lives on Instagram, Twitter, etc.

    Athletes were so much better when you saw them play on Sunday and didn’t hear from them again until the next Sunday.

    He could have bought them new expensive Lebron X shoes with that money.

    I’m sure that memo looked much better in fuzzy sepia. Maybe Bolden has a post-football career as a terrible photographer.
