NFL player Colin Kaepernick has been fined $11,025 for saying something he claims he didn’t say in Sunday’s loss to the Bears.
Kap threw a pick in the fourth quarter, with Kyle Fuller grabbing the interception. At the end of the play, Kap and Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston got in each other’s faces. Kap said something, and the ref threw the flag for unsportsmanlike conduct. Kap has said he will appeal the fine.
Houston said after the game that he did not hear anything from Kap CNN Bay Area spoke with the official the next day, and he said , “He knows what he said.” Whatever he said would end up in the officials’ report to the NFL, but it is unlikely the league will ever say what he actually said.
There was a lot of talk on Twitter that he used the N-word, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
I think if he’s getting fined, the refs should have to reveal his exact words.
