Payton Fined $15,000 for Being Critical of Refs

Saints coach Sean Payton has been fined for speaking his mind of the ref’s brainless no call in Sunday’s loss against the Broncos.  Payton has been fined $15,000 for being “critical of the officials.”  Whatever.  The fine came after he blasted the officials in Monday’s press conferece when he said the refs should have flagged Jamie Winborn when he was clearly lined up in the neutral zone.  The play resulted in a big loss with 2:40 to go on a third-and-one.  If the Saints get the first down, they get a much more likely shot at the field goal that was missed that cost them the game.  Payton will appeal the fine, and he should get it reduced.
