Safety Mike Mitchell wasn’t the only member of the Steelers to pick up a fine in Week Six.

PFT confirmed with the league that running back Le'Veon Bell and linebacker Bud Dupree joined Mitchell on their list of players who crossed the line.

Bell’s fine came for his celebration of a touchdown run against Kansas City in the 19-13 win. The NFL has relaxed rules for such celebrations this season, but Bell drew a flag for taking a page from former Eagle Vai Sikahema and using the goalpost as a punching bag.

Bell was fined $12,154 for doing that, although the terms of his franchise tag for this season should leave him with enough dough that he doesn’t have to follow Sikahema again by boxing Jose Canseco.

Dupree was fined $24,309 for roughing Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith just before halftime. Dupree was penalized on the play, although the flag was offset by one on Smith for intentional grounding.

  1. I believe one of the issues of inequality we’re hearing about is income inequality. Nice that Le’Veon can burn money over juvenile antics while some folks are homeless and hungry. Some guys really don’t appreciate the talent they were born with and the opportunities they have been given.

  2. Sunday at 4:30. Bengals Steelers. I’m sure there will be record setting fines handed out. Charities will be lining up. Nothing better than two dirty teams going at it! It’s like watching NASCAR for the wrecks.

    Sorry dude, but Brown is an entertainer who plays sports. And that is a part of why he gets the big bucks. He is interesting as well as talented. Those same folks would be hungry even if Antonio Brown got fined every week or not at all. This is America. We all have the right to pursue excellence and give as we deem appropriate. AND, we all have the right to not appreciate the free education we get or listen to our parents, friends, and relatives who try and advise us along a path of success. Freedom. There is a price.

  4. when do these pea-brains catch on that just because you’re allowed to make a simpleton of yourself in public, you don’t have to do it.
