Vikings coach Brad Childress fined for criticizing officials


After Vikings coach Brad Childress spoke out on officiating twice in recent days, the NFL fined him $35,000 Tuesday for publicly criticizing officials and disclosing details of private talks with the NFL office about officiating, spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed.

NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson notified Childress of the fine for "violating longstanding league policies that prohibit public criticism of officiating and the disclosure of confidential conversations with the head of the NFL officiating department," Aiello said in a statement.

Officials overturned three Vikings touchdowns in Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Packers, including tight end Visanthe Shiancoe's 17-yard score in the second quarter that appeared to be a catch.

Childress told KFAN-AM 1130 it was the "worst officiated game I've seen."

In his postgame news conference, Childress said 50 drunks in a bar or 50 sportswriters would have made the right call on Shiancoe's diving catch. Shiancoe appeared to retain control of the ball despite falling on top of it after catching it.

On Monday, Childress said the league told him officials blew the call.

"I was told this morning that that was a touchdown by Carl Johnson, that he was disappointed to see that reversed," Childress said. "(Shiancoe) controlled the ball throughout."

Childress didn't seem too worried about a potential fine when asked Monday.

"My thing is, 'Hey, get it right. Just get it right.'
----------------------------------------------------------

When I heard this on KFAN Monday morning I just laughed. At first, I didn't recognise it was him because there actually was some emotion in his words. Holy crap he was animated! Don't make Chilly angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.

I have no idea how a ball that was perpendicular when he landed and immediately flattened against his body constitutes control. (Granted I'm biased, but this was the consensus of the people I was watching with.)

I always thought that if the ball touched the ground during the process of a catch it was automatically incomplete.

That changed in 2000 after the Rams/Bucs NFC Championship game, to that you still have to maintain control, but touching the ground is not a deal-breaker. I've always thought the layman's interpretation was that the ball can't move when it hits the ground.

Fowler had no choice in the matter as he would not assume ownership of the team until the middle of March (and that's IF he can afford it, which is a somewhat dicey proposal at the moment)
