The Pittsburgh Steelers were given a gift by the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night when two untimely personal foul penalties were committed by Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones in the fourth quarter. Controversy was rampant after the game when Jones spoke to media to talk about Porter instigating players while Antonio Brown was being tended to by medial staff after a Burfict late hit.
Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter will be fined for coming on to field Saturday night and engaging Bengals players, per a source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 10, 2016
As it turns out, per a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, the NFL plans on fining Porter for being on the field during the injury time out.
This will likely be one of many fines handed down by the league on a night that was filled with hard hits, horrible weather and very questionable decisions at critical times which ended up resulting in the outcome of the game being completely reversed.
Porter was a fiery competitor as a player, and despite not donning shoulder pads and a helmet anymore, he remains the same way as a coach. Now, as being reported, his pay check will have a few less zeros on it, but as it led to a Steelers victory, Porter likely won't mind.
