Fines fly around the NFL like flags around James Harrison, so it's never totally shocking when you hear that someone's been tagged with a costly wardrobe malfunction. But here's a wardrobe malfunction that's tough to stomach: Bart Scott of the New York Jets has reportedly been fined $10,000 for playing with an unbuckled chinstrap.

That's according to Manish Mehta of the New York Post who cites a league source expecting the fine from the NFL -- Mehta correctly assesses that the amount "seems kind of steep."

Then again, we're not talking about a $10K hit on Scott simply because he decided to do something different with his wardrobe that violated league rules.

Instead, this is a combination of safety and uniform that sets a precedent for the league ensuring that players aren't sprinting all over the football field without properly adjusted headgear.

that's because the people getting seatbelt tickets make about 40k a year not a million, clue in... sport stars live in a different world. Have you 2Xcityofchumps?



Anybody can get a seatbelt ticket. Cops don't single people out that make 40k a year, clue in...So if bart scott gets a seatbelt ticket would it be higher ticket than mine or yours since he makes more money? I think not. Don't call me out just cause your white collar boys can barely win a game this year lol.


America's team? Try america's failures.

It's the same as tickets for not wearing your seat belt. Do you think those laws are stupid as well?


Is it really the same? I never heard of anybody getting a 10k dollar seatbelt ticket. Have you tenacious?

You all are idiots, Bart Scott makes a hit ONCE with an unbuckled chin strap and his helmet goes flying off. You call it wussy, the NFL (rightly) calls it safety. It's the same as tickets for not wearing your seat belt. Do you think those laws are stupid as well?
