Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t even playing last week and he still got fined for something he did during the game.
The Pittsburgh Steelers injured quarterback was on the sidelines when the Steelers hosted the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night rocking an Apple Watch, which is a clear violation of the uniform rule, so the league fined him $5,000 for it.
“Roethlisberger is said to be “livid” about the fine and is appealing it, according to sources. But NFL rules ban all electric devices that transmit messaging.
Roethlisberger wore the Apple Watch on the sideline during the Monday Night Football game. His issue is that he never received any advanced warning that he could be in violation, only a fine letter for wearing the device — which he didn’t even realize he had on, according to sources.”
Big Ben doesn’t have use of his right arm, so his wife dressed him and slapped the Apple Watch on his left wrist. Now, it’s going to cost him.
