Josh Freeman Fined $31,500October 2nd, 2013
Yup, another day, another chapter in the circus that has become the Bucs.
Earlier today we learned that the Bucs, reportedly, videotape team members on the sidelines of games to ensure they behave properly.
Tonight, Jim Trotter of SI.com claims Freeman has been fined by the team for “conduct detrimental.”
Add another layer to the ongoing feud between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quarterback Josh Freeman, as SI has learned that Freeman has been fined twice by the club in the last month, including once in the last week, for conduct detrimental to the team. The infractions include missing at least one team meeting and participating in an unauthorized media interview. According to a source, Freeman plans to appeal the fines.
That was followed up by Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times Twittering that Freeman was fined over $30,000 for the infractions.
@NFLSTROUD: #Bucs QB Josh Freeman was fined at least twice for a total of $31,500. He is appealing. $10,500 was for his unauthorized ESPN interview
Well now. “At least” two infractions? The soap opera wheels continue to turn at One Buc Palace.
It’s to the point Joe doesn’t want to sleep for fear of missing the next shoe dropping in this seemingly never-ending saga.
