Is this a common policy, cause I don't recall other coaches being fined after publicly venting their discontent with the officiating, and more importantly, where does the money go?
I mean game fines.
35k for not leaving the court
25k for criticizing the refs
60k for Brown's actions (whatever that means.)
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
I thought he didn't talk to the media after the game, so I'm curious how he got fined for criticizing them after the game.
The league is making sure pepole know they're behind the replacement refs. Or at least making the replacments know that someone is behind them. Hopefully this doesn't drag too far into the regular season (which if you're the regular refs, you do that to gain leverage).

That's ludacris. But I'll bet LB isn't paying all or even most of it. And how the fuck did he criticize officials after the game He left the court, and didn't talk to the media. That's bull.
Stu Jackson can suck a cock, the NBA knows it's wrong, and can't admit it.
I'm more confused with the fine for not leaving the court (I thought he walked off on his own accord, but I'm not sure as I didn't watch the game?) and the 60K Bobcats fine (What were they supposed to do? haha keep him from talking?)
25K of the fine is justified, the other 95K... not so much
Just asked Michael about it, he said he has "no way of explaining" the fine to the team, and isn't sure yet about an appeal.
