League Fines Nedney $7,500 for Obscene Gesture at Fans

49’ers kicker Joe Nedney was fined $7,500 by the NFL today for his flipping of the bird at fans during Sunday’s game at Monster Park.  The kicker had said sorry after the incident post game of the 31-10 loss to the Saints, and said again today that frustration got the better of him.  “It was the culmination of a frustrating day for me,” Nedney said. “Rather than taking a deep breath and counting to 10, I heard something that rubbed me the wrong way at the wrong time, and I made a mistake.”  The vet made the gesture after he was booed for kicking the ball out of bounds after kicking a field goal that made it a 24-3 game.  This season he is 8-for-9 on field goal attempts.
