Cutler Fined $20k For Abusive Conduct

Adding insult to injury, the NFL has levied a $20k fine against QB Jay Cutler for his decision to air out frustrations towards referee Ed Hochuli last week.

A day after throwing five interceptions in the Bears' 10-6 loss at San Francisco, Cutler was fined $20,000 by the NFL for abusive conduct toward a game official during last Sunday's 41-21 loss to the Cardinals.

Cutler was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct in the third quarter following a pass attempt to Greg Olsen. He argued with Ed Hochuli because he thought Olsen was held on the play.

The article also mentions that Tommie Harris was fined $7,500 for the punch he threw last week.

$20k for yelling at a ref, but only $7,500 for punching a player.  Alrighty then...
