Vikings HC Brad Childress Fined $35,000

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress has been fined $35,000 for violating the league's policy against publicly criticizing game officials.

"That's the worst officiated game I've seen," Childress said after the game. "That referee came over and apologized to me for not calling a hold on the scramble by (Packers quarterback Aaron) Rodgers. And I'll tell you what, that's his job. Protect the quarterback and look at the left tackle. Look at the left tackle hold his tail off."

Childress also disclosed the nature of confidential conversations with the league office during his press conference on Monday. Childress told the media that Carl Johnson, the NFL's director of officiating, had informed him that a mistake was made when tight end Visanthe Shiacoe's touchdown was overturned via replay.
