NFL Fines Bly For Comments On Officials

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The NFL has fined Broncos cornerback Dre' Bly $20,000 for inappropriate remarks about officials after Denver's 24-17 loss to Jacksonville last weekend. The fine was announced Friday.

Bly was agitated over an illegal contact call he drew in the third quarter, plus a pass interference call on Broncos safety Marlon McCree in the waning moments of the game.

The Broncos have caught their share of breaks from the officials this season, most notably on Ed Hochuli's blown call in a 39-38 win over San Diego, and Bly hinted that things were evening out.

Bly wasn't available for comment Friday.
