Report: Chargers’ Joey Bosa fined nearly $29K for outburst

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa received a $28,917 fine from the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct toward officials during Monday’s 28-14 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Per the NFL Network on Saturday, the fine stems solely from Bosa’s on-field confrontation with officials late in the fourth quarter.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection took issue with what he deemed to be a missed holding call. His subsequent outburst resulted in a 15-yard penalty and first down.

Bosa, 26, didn’t hold back with his comments after the game.

“I didn’t even know they called the (expletive) penalty on me because I was fuming,” Bosa told reporters Monday. “But, I mean, refs are blind, simple. I’m sorry, but you’re blind, like open your eyes and do your job. It’s so bad it’s unbelievable.”

Bosa didn’t stop there.

“Fifteen yards, it’s a big deal,” he said. “Obviously that’s on me. I should never lose my temper like that, but these guys have got to do a better job because it’s been years of terrible missed calls left and right. It’s really pathetic, honestly, but pathetic on me too for doing what I did. Call or not, I have to take a step back and just go to the next play, but, man, they seem not to have their eyes open half the time.”
