NFL Coaches Apparently Refused To Pay Fines For Mask Wearing

The NFL tried to enforce its COVID rules during the 2020 season, making mask wearing mandatory for coaches, though not everyone followed the rules.

Some of the league's top coaches were fined by the NFL for failing to adhere to the rules.

But did they actually pay the fines?According to an ESPN report, Sean Payton told Jon Gruden that he was the only "dumb motherf--ker" to pay the fine.

“I never paid the fine,” Sean Payton told Gruden. “You’re the only dumbf-ck that paid the fine.”

Gruden was reportedly fined $100,000 for failing to wear his mask during a game.

Payton was hit with the same fine, though he apparently refused to pay it.

It would be interesting to see if the head coaches around the league actually refused to pay the fine.
