Belichick fined 50K, Shanahan 25K by NFL

       NEW YORK (AP) _ The NFL has fined Patriots coach Bill Belichick $50,000 and Redskins assistant Kyle Shanahan $25,000 for their conduct toward replacement officials.
        The fines announced Wednesday come as the league and its referees' union are meeting amid reports they are close to ending the lockout of the regular officials.
        Belichick grabbed an official's arm at the end of Sunday night's game after the Ravens kicked a winning field goal. Shanahan was cited by the league for ``abuse of officials'' during a game against the Bengals.
        On Monday, the league fined Broncos coach John Fox $30,000 and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $25,000 for berating officials during a loss to Atlanta on Sept. 17.
