Anger Management


Richie Incognito's alleged actions in the St. Louis Rams' first win of the season did not go unnoticed by the NFL.

Richie Incognito


The league has fined the Rams offensive lineman a total of $35,000 for multiple offenses allegedly committed during the Rams' 19-17 victory over the Washington Redskins Incognito, penalized three times during the game, was fined $25,000 for repeated verbal abuse of a game official; $5,000 for a major facemask; and $5,000 for a chop block. in Week 6. Referee Walt Coleman issued a 15-yard penalty against the Rams after Incognito allegedly berated officials while St. Louis was driving deep in Redskins territory. The penalty turned a potential 34-yard field goal into a 49-yard attempt, which kicker Josh Brown converted on the last play of the game to give the Rams their first victory of the season. Jim Haslett, making his debut as the Rams' head coach, spoke at length with Incognito this week about controlling his emotions. Haslett also took a measure of responsibility for Incognito's actions, saying he had encouraged the offensive line to play with an attitude.

It never ceases to amaze me. Such a huge talent and such a huge nut job that you have to wonder why any NFL team would attempt to keep this kid on the roster for more than a year. The Rams have kept this kid on the roster for 4 years. One thing that pisses me off to this day is the 2002 Nebraska vs. Penn State game where Incognito was ejected for fighting. Because of this asshole, Dr. D and I had 10 coal miners hitting us on the head with their empty Miller High Life bottles. I still maintain I could have made it through the 3rd quarter if it wasn't for Incognito grabbing a Penn State defensive lineman in the balls.
