NFL Fines Vikings Coach for Scalping Super Bowl Tickets

The National Football League has fined Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Tice $100,000 for scalping tickets to last season's Super Bowl. That is one-tenth of his $1 million salary per season.

Tice admitted shortly after the end of the NFL playoffs that he had sold some of his allotment of 12 tickets for more than their face value of $500 to $600 per ticket.

The NFL has a policy forbidding resale of tickets for profit to any league events by their personnel, and has them sign a release stating they will not.

The NFL's disciplinary committee announced the fine Thursday. They also fined two Vikings assistant coaches $10,000 each for similar infractions.
