Shivers fined

Roy Shivers fined for comments regarding Henry Burris

Shivers told a Regina radio station on Tuesday that Burris, now a member of the Calgary Stampeders, won't get any special welcome when he returns to Saskatchewan this season.

"We'll treat him like any other quarterback and try to break his neck," Shivers said.

Shivers later said he was only joking.

Fining him is ridiculous in this case, let people say what they say, it's part of the game, all that matters in the long-run is the game itself, not what someone said before it and I think anyone with half a brain would recognize that Shivers was joking.
