Titans Owner Breaks Major Bread After Flipping Bird
Apparently you’re never too old to tell somebody to go f*ck themselves, which Titans owner Bud Adams decided to do during his team’s win against the Bills Sunday. Now it’s not clear who Adams was directing these birds at, we thought maybe Kerry Collins, while some say it was in the direction of the Bills. Either way once the video went viral you knew it was only a matter of time before the Don Roger Goodell would make Adams break bread for the lapse in judgment.
What’s astonishing is the $250 stacks (thousand) that Adams was fined, which borders on being damn near absurd. Seriously, a quarter million for a hand gesture? Meanwhile Tom Cable gets a slap on the wrist for binging a coach and some of his old boos. This has to be the most expensive bird-flipping ever documented, but the blow to the wallet should be eased by the fact that the Titans have won their last 3 games after starting the season 0-6. We imagine that Adams would have been way saltier if this fine was a result of sad middle fingers instead of happy ones. But since Adams has cake like everyday’s his birthday, the check should be in the mail.
Before the fine was imposed Adams released this statement through the team:
I need to apologize for my actions yesterday near the end of the game. I got caught up in the excitement of a great day, but I do realize that those types of things shouldn’t happen. I need to specifically apologize to the Bills, their fans, our fans and the NFL. I obviously have a great deal of respect for Ralph Wilson and the history we have shared. I also understand there will probably be league discipline for my actions and I will accept those.
