    Steelers linebacker James Farrior has been fined $7,500 by the NFL for making an obscene finger gesture at Browns fans last Sunday.

    Farrior made the gesture in the third quarter in of the Steelers' 10-6 win over Cleveland.

    "I thought it was going to be more," Farrior said, "so I can't even complain."

    The fine should have been $15,000 but Goodell figured, ehhhh, its just the Browns.

    When I said "I hope they fine his a.ss," this wasn't whom I was referring to.

    Can we at least remove that word from the censors?

    Yup, the combination of FWP on offense and BWL's defense will be hard to stop.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
