Damarious Randall, Davante Adams fined for post-TD actions

Packers cornerback Damarious Randall insists he didn’t get an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty during last Sunday’s victory over the Cowboys, but he did and the discipline for flipping the ball at Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott after returning for a touchdown extended beyond the field.

According to multiple reports, Randall has been fined $9,115 by the league for the ball flip. Randall said this week that “I don’t think I got a penalty” when asked about what happened, although it was as clear that he did as it was that his touchdown helped the Packers get a win in Dallas.

Another Packers player has been fined for his post-touchdown activity as well. Wide receiver Davante Adams has been fined $6,076 for throwing the ball into the stands after his game-winning score in the fourth quarter. Adams said he didn’t think about trying to get the ball back.

“It was going too far, so I lost track of it. I got a pretty nice arm, I’d like to think,” Adams said, via Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal.

Adams would not have been fined if he’d handed the ball to someone in the stands.

  1. Eh… it looked like Randall had already turned his head away and just flipped the ball at random. That said, I understand perfectly why there was a penalty, and now a fine. You just can’t let that stuff get started, innocently or not. It will escalate… quickly.

    Adams throwing the ball in the stands is against the rules. A very long-standing rule. It only bugs me because throwing the ball like that was just a spontaneous outburst of emotion which is much more acceptable, in my mind, than all the goofy choreographed celebrations we’re seeing. He should be fined because he broke the rule… but that rule seems way out of date now that all this other tomfoolery is allowed.

    They’ll have a lot fewer opportunities to get fined for TD celebrations this week.

    That’s what I love about you; I think you actually believe that.

  3. Packer players are so classless and they get it from lack of management accountability. Just terrible examples all around. Why can’t they just have fun like Kyle Rudolph and company instead of always needing to try and show people up?

  4. 6 grand for throwing the ball into the stands. Don’t the teams use their own balls? The Randall one is fine and fining a guy for throwing it in the stands i’m for that as well but 6K seems tough for a celebration that really didn’t affect anyone other than a fan that got a football for free.

  5. Cheesie is getting more and more desperate. It won’t be long now until he follows the other purples that have embarrassed themselves to the point of running off and creating a new username… again. This is already his third or fourth.

    It’s fine-able when thrown but not handed off is likely because a fan could get hurt if hit by a thrown ball especially if they are not looking for it and especially kids.

    I always wanted to see Favre, when throwing a ball away, just launch it up into the cheap seats; let a lucky fan have the souvenir of a lifetime. What you say makes perfect sense, though.

  8. There’s a difference between buying a SB win and “winning” one. GB has always had the backing of the league. Notice how GB fans are on here ALL THE TIME? It’s because they have nothing else. Their MLB team has sucked for decades, their NBA team is just as bad as fore mentioned MLB team, and they have no NHL team. They literally only have the packers. When Rodgers starts regressing, and they have losing season after losing season, they threads will finally be intelligent conversations again because they will either be at the bar, in the bingo hall, or at the bowling alley. They have NOTHING ELSE AT ALL.

    Bitter AND delusional… it’s the perfect purple!

  10. In my opinion, the Packers have to score upwards of 28, at least, to win the game. The Packers defense is horrendous, and now they’re missing players, so the Vikings will score 27 at a minimum.

    With that said, this game will be a blowout if the Packers starting tackles aren’t able to play.

    Assuming that, I’ll go 34-17 Vikings.

    This is hilarious! Basically you’re admitting there’s no way your offense can score more than 28 points! I think that’s generous, though, after watching the purps go up against a decimated Bears D!
