Raider coach not fined for bumping ref



Week 6: Eagles at Raiders

Some late news from Week 6, as Jay Glazer of Fox reports that Raiders coach Tom Cable avoided being fined for bumping an official in the game against the Eagles.

Following a interception return for a touchdown that was nullified by a pass interference penalty, Cable was flagged for 15 yards for bumping line judge Darryll Lewis. It must have not been viewed as flagrant, as Cable could have been the first head coach ever to be ejected from the game.

Usually, this carries a $25,000 fine, however Glazer reports that the league office could not find anything on video conclusive enough for the fine. (This does not mean that the penalty was incorrect, as the coach still made contact with the official.)
