Polamalu Wins Appeal of $10,000 For Using Cell Phone on Sideline

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

Troy Polamalu has won his appeal of a $ 10,000 fine for using a cell phone on the team’s sideline, Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports.

Polamalu had suffered a head injury during the game and was using the mobile device to let his wife know that he was fine.

Under NFL policy, the possession of a cell phone, PDA, or any electronic equipment in the bench area is prohibited during the game. The successful appeal of Polamalu’s fine may be tied to the changes the league made to the concussion protocol policy in December, one of which will allow medical staff to use a cell phone to gather information relating to the care of an injured player.

What was so urgent that he needed to borrow the team trainer's cell phone? Well, Polamalu was calling his wife, Theodora, to let her know that he was OK after taking a knee to the head while stopping Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew during the fourth quarter of a game in October.
The 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Polamalu promptly appealed the penalty and won his argument on Thursday.
At the time of the infraction, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin ripped the league for lacking common sense.
"He has had a history of concussion-like symptoms in the past," Tomlin told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette at the time. "(She) was conc...
