Tice Tagged $100,000 For Scalping
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue fined the Vikings head coach $100,000 and assistant coaches Dean Dalton and Rusty Tillman $10,000 each for their roles in reselling Super Bowl tickets issued by the NFL at inflated prices.
NFL policy prohibits the scalping of any ticket to an NFL game or event. NFL
clubs are reminded of this policy each year in a memo from the commissioner, and NFL players and team employees are required to sign a waiver saying they will not resell Super Bowl tickets for a profit if they elect to purchase them from the NFL.
A former Viking alerted the NFL and a number of media organizations about the ordeal earlier this year.
"I respect Commissioner Tagliabue's decision," Tice said in a statement Thursday. "I used poor judgment and it will not happen again. I apologize to my family, Commissioner Tagliabue, the NFL, the entire Vikings organization and the fans.
"I consider this matter closed and remain focused on the upcoming 2005 season, which should be an exciting year for Vikings fans everywhere."
