Tennessee Titans Owner Bud Adams has been fined $250k by the NFL for an obscene gesture following the Titans thrashing of the Bills in the 4th Quarter of Sunday’s game.
Adams, who was captured throwing middle fingers on YouTube, was initially supported by a number of his players and fans. “I don’t know if he did it, but I condone fun things,” Finnegan said, according to The Tennessean. “If he was having fun doing it, then by all means, do what you do.”
Following the fine, however, he changed his tune saying, “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.”
Both Adams and the Bills’ Ralph Wilson are original owners of AFL teams, and afterword Adams expressed remorse to that end. “I obviously have a great deal of respect for [Bills owner] 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,” Adams said.
Frankly, I’m not judging. Let the man celebrate the fact that his team has now won three whole games. Like Wilson, he’s probably going to have to wait another lifetime to see a Super Bowl trophy hoisted by his team.
