NFL fines Broncos' Bly $20K for comments about officials

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The NFL fined Broncos cornerback Dre' Bly $20,000 on Friday for inappropriate remarks about officials after Denver's 24-17 loss to Jacksonville last weekend.

Bly was agitated over an illegal contact call he drew in the third quarter, plus a pass interference call on Broncos safety Marlon McCree in the waning moments of the game.

The Broncos have caught their share of breaks from the officials this season, most notably on Ed Hochuli's blown call in a 39-38 win over San Diego, and Bly hinted that things were evening out.

"I guess they've been evaluating us and say we won games we shouldn't have won. So, I guess they're going to get a call against us," Bly said of referee Bill Carollo's officiating crew after the game Sunday.

Bly wasn't available for comment after the fine was announced Friday.

However, he stood by his comments the day before, saying he didn't think his criticism was excessive or out of line.

"I wasn't cussing them or (saying) he was a bad guy," Bly said. "I just said it was judgment calls. But I thought they were bad calls to make at (a) critical part of the game."

Bly was flagged for illegal contact, even though he was tossed to the ground by Jaguars receiver Reggie Williams. The play turned a potential fourth-and-13 into an automatic first down. The Jaguars went on to score, giving them a 24-10 lead.

McCree was whistled for pass interference on tight end Greg Estandia that gave Jacksonville a first down at the Denver 32 late in the game. Replays appeared to show no interference on the play.

"They have to go on their instincts and their instincts told them to throw a flag," Bly said. "We can't dwell on that, that's in the past. We've got to move forward."

Dolphins' Porter fined for ripping ref-under-fire Hochuli

MIAMI -- Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter was fined $20,000 Friday by the NFL for comments critical of beleaguered referee Ed Hochuli and his crew in Sunday's loss at Houston.

On the first play of the Texans' drive for the winning touchdown late in the game, Porter stripped quarterback Matt Schaub. Hochuli ruled the play an incomplete pass rather than a fumble, saying Schaub's arm was moving forward when hit.

"I know for sure that I had both his arms when the ball came out," Porter said after the game. "I'm looking for an apology or something on Tuesday or Wednesday on NFL Network, but it will be too late by then. The game's over. ...

"I thought we won the game, actually, but they kept getting calls."

Hochuli has been at the center of several disputed decisions this season, included a call he acknowledged he blew that helped Denver rally past San Diego.

--------------------------------------------------

That seems pretty ridiculous to me. The truth is, the NFL refs have been absolutely horrible this season. The fact that Roger Goodell is not only trying to ignore bad calls but also trying to penalize people for shedding light on them is complete bullshit to me.

I can not imagine a worse commissioner than Goodell. The man did basically nothing to the Patriots for cheating their way to Super Bowls. He reinstated Pacman Jones when he obviously shouldn't have. He's penalized players for bullshit "big hits" purely for the money that it brings the NFL. He's a fucking joke and it makes no sense to me why you'd penalize a player for saying the officiating was bad.

yeah...all the fines this year are BS...I wonder if this shit would be going on if Gene Upshaw was still here.

I can see this straining the relationship between the owners and the players association and that can really hurt when it comes time to negotiate the next CBA.
