Joey Bosa fined for unsportsmanlike conduct, critcism of officials

USA Today Sports

Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa‘s actions on and off the field last weekend have resulted in fines from the NFL.

Bosa was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct twice during last Saturday’s loss to the Jaguars. The first flag came after he said something to an official and the second came when he threw his helmet to the ground because he felt officials missed penalties by Jaguars tackle Jawaan Taylor on a Christian Kirk touchdown. The Jaguars went for two after the penalty and got it, which helped set the stage for their game-winning field goal.

A day after the game, Bosa went off on the game’s officials while speaking to reporters from the team’s facility.

The NFL fined Bosa a total $55,546 in response to all of his outbursts.

  1. Bosa is a punk who even more then (in over his head…coach) Staley…cost the Bolts the game.

  2. First, let’s acknowledge Bosa is an idiot for his antics that cost the team a win. Inexcusable.

    Second, what a lame pos the NFL is that they can’t allow free speech, take some (well deserved) criticism every now and then.

    Third, players can blame themselves for not addressing this topic in collective bargaining.

  3. Because it’s the official’s fault that he lined up offsides and later threw a fit because they didn’t get a call. Try looking in the mirror and controlling what you can control.

  4. Isn’t interesting that those who clamor about “free speech” seem to lack any understanding of its meaning?

  5. Idk why everyone is going crazy about the 2 point conversion. Peterson went for 2 after their 3rd td for no reason. Poor coaching led to a bone headed play leading to a great audible by Trevor.

  6. Yet another fine that is larger than Quay Walker pushing the trainer who was on the field to help the injured. So it’s better to target the innocent than to question the league… Noted.

  7. Refs make bad calls sometimes. And i don’t mind calling them out for doing a poor job. But acting like they were out to get him and were malicious was weak.

  8. Yet another fine that is larger than Quay Walker pushing the trainer who was on the field to help the injured. So it’s better to target the innocent than to question the league…

    You can hate the packers all you want but keep a little perspective please. You’re comparing apples to hand grandes. Walker apologized profusely for his behavior, fully admits he was wrong and has issues, is addressing them and reached out to the person he shoved. He’s a very young man in a tough game, trying to improve himself.
    Bosa…you be the nonpartisan judge.

  9. Meh. I’m not gonna dis him. How many obvious bad calls and no-calls do you have to witness before you blow a gasket? 8, 10, 12????

  10. Sounds a lot like where I work. Don’t say anything bad about people who are bad at their job. Especially if they have an “in” above you. If you bring up a problem, you’re made out to be the problem. America, baby.

    ==================================================
    Walker called the Lions trainer to personally apologize,… he then publicly apologized and also apologized to his teammates in the locker room.
    He admitted his error. But that isn’t good enough for you ?

    Draft dodgers have no say in freedom of speech

  13. The in-game shenanigans are unneeded but he shouldn’t be fined for calling out the refs when they do a bad job

  14. Not a Bosa fan, but he was right with his comments!
    The Refs were horrible this year, They need to start being fined!!!

  15. The Chargers’ defense should be fined $1 million for allowing a weak and worthless competitor to come back and to beat them. They made a draft bust look like an all pro QB – and he will never be one.
