Once again, Terrell Owens' NFL touchdown celebrations cost him.

The flamboyant Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was fined $10,000 for violating league uniform and equipment rules by the NFL, The Dallas Morning News reported Thursday.

The newspaper said that Owens was penalized for waving a personalized towel during Dallas' 38-17 win over Philadelphia on Sunday, a move that was picked up by television cameras.

It was the second time this season he's been fined for violating league rules after a touchdown.

Earlier this season, Owens was fined $7,500 for a celebration that included using the goal post and football to poke fun at the New England Patriots' spying scandal during Dallas' 37-20 victory over Miami this past Sunday.

The newspaper quoted the Cowboys wide receiver as saying the league has squeezed much of the fun out of the game for him and many others.

"It's stuff like that," Owens told the Morning News. "People try to make a big deal out of it. It's not any different than Chad [Johnson] going to the sidelines and taking [out] a coat. All I had was a little towel, and now they want to make that into a big deal."

Last week, Johnson was fined $5,000 for wearing "Ocho Cinco" on a Velco nameplate across the back of his uniform. "Ocho Cinco," signifying his uniform No. 85, is the name by which Johnson said he wanted to be called the day leading up to the game.

Owens is coming off his best game in his two seasons with Dallas, a 10-catch, 174-yard performance Sunday night at Philadelphia, his former team that nearly two years to the date had banished him before eventually releasing him.

The Cowboys play Sunday at the New York Giants, a rematch of the season opener in which Owens had three catches for 87 yards and two TDs in a 45-35 victory.

At the midpoint of the season, Owens has 44 catches for 730 yards and six touchdowns.


Wow. I'm not even a T.O Fan, but $10,000 for waving a towel.

Why can't he just be classy like Barry Sanders and hand the ball to the ref?

A touchdown celebration, with props, is not done strictly to "have fun." The player is trying to draw all the attention to himself. TO should take a lesson from LT; when Tomlinson had a record-setting run last season, he ran back to celebrate with his teammates - the other 10 guys that made it possible for him to score.

I wish football was more like baseball. If you stand at home plate admiring your homer, there is a good chance you or one of your teammates is going to get drilled. I'd like to see some justice like that in football. How often would TO celebrate if he knew somebody was going to purposefully try to hurt him for it?

^ But in this case he was sitting on the bench waving his towel... he wasn't trying to hurt anyones feelings.. plus he wave this towel before and there was no fine.. if the league is going to go down hard with fines they have to be consistent.
