(NEWSER) – A San Diego Chargers safety has been fined $10,000 for "conduct detrimental to the team" during the Dec. 20 game against Miami.
What did he do that was so detrimental? Watched his daughter dance in the halftime show, USA Today reports, calling it "one of the more bizarre bridge-burning events of the 2015 NFL season." True, Eric Weddle did not ask permission to miss the team's halftime meeting in order to watch the show, but the game was "meaningless" and the Chargers led 23 to zip, writes Chris Chase for USA Today.
More importantly, Weddle is "a consummate team player" who is about to be a free agent: "So, uh, probably not the time to start negotiations on a new contract then?"
