The league went after its own when it handed out fines to coaches this week for criticizing officiating.
The Oakland Raiders' Art Shell was fined $12,500 for saying Monday that his team had been wronged by a 15-yard penalty during Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos for a player failing to try to get back on the field immediately after being blocked out of bounds.
Shell worked in the league office before returning to the sideline this season as the Raiders' coach. Earlier this week, Tennessee Titans Coach Jeff Fisher was fined for his remarks about the officiating in his club's game last weekend. Fisher is the co-chairman of the NFL's powerful competition committee.
Shell told reporters he hadn't been fined since getting a $50 penalty in 1968, when he was a rookie player, for oversleeping and being late to a meeting.
