Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Fined For Wearing Apple Watch On Sideline
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, is out for the year due to injury, but that doesn't mean he can ignore the rules.
"Big Ben" was reportedly fined by the NFL for wearing an Apple Watch on the sideline during a game.
The NFL prohibits players from having any electronic device on the sidelines that transmit messages. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Roethlisberger will appeal the fine, but pictures never lie.
Is this rule a little petty? Some say yes, but if it keeps the game "fair" I get it. Sorry Ben, you've got the money, now pay up and let this be a lesson learned.
