Report: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger fined $5,000 by NFL for wearing Apple Watch on Steelers' sideline

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has reportedly been fined $5,000 by the NFL for a uniform violation because he wore an Apple Watch on the Steelers' sideline Monday night when the Steelers hosted the Cincinnati Bengals, according to ESPN.

ESPN reported that Roethlisberger is "livid" about the fine and is appealing it.

With Roethlisberger unable to use his right arm, his wife dressed him for the Monday night game and strapped the Apple Watch on his left wrist, ESPN reported.

At first, I was appalled by the notion of getting fined because of a watch. Then it was pointed out that these could be used as a form of communication (cheating) with others.

So the watch doesn't communicate unless it is in range of the phone.

Total lack of NFL common sense. His right arm is in a cast and brace concoction making use of the exposed hand difficult at best for any action, let alone doing anything ala Dick Tracey with the watch.
