He was telling the story of how he came into the locker room for practice and saw a nice looking FedEx package waiting for him at his locker. Well to his surprise when he opened it up, it was a nice letter up until the end. At the end it told him to get his checkbook out and pay his fine for shooting the eagle out of the air. It was too suggestive. He shrugged it off. He said he was just excited to get his first sack and be on MNF. He didn't mean anything hurtful he was just excited.

I remember when he did that and thinking 'uh oh he's gonna catch hell for that'.

Wow that has to be the lamest fine i ever heard of. I see players doing worst stuff then that and not be fined.

It is like the Knife slicing the throat gesture.

He simulated a gun, actually he simulated a pump action shotgun followed a bird across the sky and shot it.

It is amazing how he gets fined for it and the NFL network had no problem showing it on TV again. Hypocrits!!!!

It's not alright to do it but he have no problems showing it..

Rod Woodson was telling Udeze that they would open other players FedEx packages and when that player would come in they would tell him about the fine before he could get to his locker to open the Fed Ex.

Rod thought it was funny. He almost made it seem like it wasn't a punishment, it was more like an accolade. Or in simpler terms, it is like getting a star on yourhome work but having to pay thousands of $$$ for that star.

I hate when they fine players for stuff like that...its part of the game. Unnecessary, yes, but celebrations do add excitement to the game. I can agree with the TO running out onto the Dallas star, TO signing a ball, or Joe Horn's cellphone stunt all as being fineable offenses - but a sack celebration? Come on.

From the article I read on the Owen replay in the MNF game is like they kept the camera on him waiting for him to do something instead of showing the reply. They said they did show the replay in a timely fashion but I don't remember but one angle which wasn't very good before the Extra Point. They could have shown more but they were waiting for the theatrics of ownens.

My point is that I think some celebrations have become too much. I don't think a really laid back celebration by Udeze was a distraction but I think Owens is a distraction.

Any publicity is good publicity is a selfish motto. Udeze antics during his celebration virtually went unnoticed. The league had to make it into a deal. Owens and Horn made their celebrations into a deal.

A guy wanting to celebrate because he is happy is cool a guy celebrating for attention is selfish.

I do think that owens bird dance is ok. But McNabbs moon walk and ball slam is excessive. It was a slap in the face to the Vikes. It was HE..HEE.......... not funny. Maybe I am just a sore loser

You guys remember when Randy Moss got fined about 2 seasons ago on Monday Night Football for backwards-trotting into the endzone and mugging for the camera man? He got a bigass fine for it and all of the talking (dick)heads on the sports shows went off about how it shows how irresponsible and cancerous Randy must be... The NEXT WEEK, the opening song/video montage for Monday Night Football INCLUDED Randy's celebration! It just goes to show how money-oriented the NFL is...fine the player to make nervous Moms stop writing angry letters and forget the whole thing, then show the same clip in order to sell jerseys and market NFL "extreme action!" It's a bunch of hypocritical B.S.
