AJ Hawk caught giving the middle finger on camera

For whatever reason, Packers linebacker AJ Hawk decided to point his middle finger (blurred for family friendly safety!) at the Packers sideline on Sunday. Unfortunately for Hawk, the Fox cameras caught him in the act, as you can se above.

The officials didn't catch it, so there was no flag, but Hawk is all but certain to be fined by the NFL at some point in the coming week.

Unless he convince them that he doesn't deserve to be fined.

Two possible excuses for this: he simply thinks "the Packers are No. 1" and his index finger hurts.

Or two, "look at the jersey I had to wear today -- of course I'm angry at the world." The latter actually seems pretty logical.

From a family-viewing standpoint, the decision to display such was probably not wise. And he paid for it$.  But from the viewpint of those guys who've been razzed  from buddys about failings of one sort or another, this is priceless! This should be a part of the next American Express commercial!

So my question is: where can I buy a shirt with this exact display !

I think one of his teammates yelled out to him that his jersey looked like an old Michigan jersey from the 1940's.

Maybe he was giving the finger to Obama for inviting the 1985 Bears Super Bowl Champs to the Whitehouse.

I laughed my A$$ off when I saw that live..Watching it with a bunch of guys who did the same and we all are Packer fans...dumb move but it's a middle finger, I see more of those driving to work each week than I see in NFL games. Didn't hurt anyone and it was onscreen about a half second. Fine him a bit and move on...no big deal..

As for the jersey comment, I think most throwbacks are cool and at least a good switch from the normal old uni once in a while...Maybe the real reason he did it is their next defensive package thyey were going to run is called the "F U" package and Hawk was just signaling the players to come on the field...ha

I'm sick and tired of these morons. Kids can't watch games anymore with the likes of Niger Morgan and Hawk acting like idiots. Complete idiots!

I remember watching this during the game, and my first reaciton was..Did Hawk just flip the bird to his sideline? But it seemed as if he was signaling something and used his middle for it. I just left it at that. He actually waved it back and forth a few times. It wasn't like a Nyjer Morgan under the forearm type of deal. Never thought it would make the news. Like someone else on here said...Let the team deal with it if they want. But since Goodell's having a hard time collecting money for things in the lockout, he's probably hungry for some cash.

And a life taken is even worse. So sorry you have to deal with seeing that "pink crap" all month. So sorry your life is being affected by having to see that crap. I feel so bad for you. It must be hard to accept such a life changing thing. They don't wear it because it's their favorite color. They wear the colors because it mean something. Something someone like you couldn't possibly grasp. You're an idiot. I hope your balls fall off tomorrow

This reminded me of Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl, when I was watching it, I had one of those "Wow, did that really just happen?" moments.  I thought he was flicking off the Rams, that's pretty funny he'll get fined for giving the finger to his own team.

Wow, he is the first person in US history to give a middle finger. How horrific. LAME! Also, if NFl was so worried about "public images" and "kids who watcht he game".. maybe they shouldnt run VIAGARA commercials every 20 minutes for 8 hours on sunday. Explain that to your 10 year old kid.

Maybe he was expressing how he feels about a month of that god awful pink crap the teams are wearing.  A week is cool, a month is ridiculous.
