Jets Bart Scott Fined $10,000 for “Flipping The Bird”
Things keep going downhill in the locker room of the New York Jets. The team announced today that linebacker Bart Scott has been fined $10, 000 for giving the middle finger to a news photographer on Monday.
According to ESPN New York, members of the media wanted to talk to various Jets players on Monday following the embarrassing loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Most Jets Players didn’t have anything to say to the media, including Scott. A photographer got too close to the linebacker and he told him to “Get that F**king thing out of my face” and flashed the obscene gesture.
The Organization said Scott’s actions were “Innapropriate and unacceptable” in a statement earlier today. Greg Aiello, a Spokesman for the NFL said Scott would not face additional discipline from the league, saying the Jets’ fine “will suffice” and was handled as “a club matter.”
