Giants WR Odell Beckham Fined For Comments


After comparing Sunday’s official’s vision to that of Stevie Wonder (who’s blind), New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was fined $12,154 by the NFL.

But it wasn’t for the comments.

Beckham was fined for “excessive profanity towards an official,” according to USA Today.

This might be a wild guess, but the next time a player or coach compares NFL referees to anyone blind, they will likely be fined too….for something different.
