Several members of the Pittsburgh Steelers have lost some money after a weekend in Las Vegas.

After James Harrison, Arthur Moats and Maurkice Pouncey were all present and a part of a charity arm wrestling competition at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, the NFL investigated the situation after realizing the players broke their rule on players receiving money to appear in a casino.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the NFL plans on fining all players who were in attendance and participated in the event.

If you are just hearing about this situation, you can get the full run down of the rule, the situation and why the NFL isn’t happy despite them agreeing to move an entire franchise to Las Vegas right HERE.

The amount of the fine was not known, and when Harrison’s agent was contacted for a comment, possibly regarding a potential appeal, he had no comment on the situation.

When it comes to Harrison and Roger Goodell, he doesn’t hold his tongue. I’m sure the subject will be brought up as soon as the media can ask him questions, and it will be interesting to hear what the man they call ‘Deebo’ has to say about the NFL front office.

In the meantime, you know where you can find Harrison — in the weight room.
