Source: Burfict fined $12K for flipping off crowd
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct after flipping both of his middle fingers toward the stands late in the fourth quarter of the Bengals’ 16-12 home loss to the Bills last Sunday, a source told ESPN.
The fine is Burfict’s second of the season. He was fined $75,000 for allegedly stomping on the leg of Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount.
Burfict also was suspended three games without pay to start the season for violating the NFL’s safety policy.
