Vikes' Tice fined $100K for scalping Super Bowl tickets





June 30, 2005
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports



EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Tice was fined $100,000 by the NFL on Thursday for scalping his Super Bowl tickets.

Running backs coach Dean Dalton and special teams coach Rusty Tillman were also each fined $10,000 for scalping their tickets. Commissioner Paul Tagliabue notified the three coaches of their punishment in a letter.

Tice was on vacation and unavailable for comment, but he issued a statement through the team, in which he said he used "poor judgment."

"It will not happen again," Tice said. "I apologize to my family, Commissioner Tagliabue, the NFL, the entire Vikings organization and the fans. I consider this matter closed and remain focused on the upcoming 2005 season, which should be an exciting year for Vikings fans everywhere."

Tice has acknowledged reselling some of his personal allotment of 12 Super Bowl tickets last season and had also resold his tickets as a Vikings assistant coach from 1996-2001.

Each NFL player has the right to purchase up to two Super Bowl tickets at face value, which this year was $500 and $600 depending on the seat. But they must sign a document saying they won't resell them at a profit. Individual teams determine the number of tickets available to coaches.

You can't really expect a guy 6'7" that wears a pencil behind his ear to be sharp enough to keep something like that on the DL...

Late.

LOL. Then again, there is a reason why he is called Meathead.
