Congratulations to Troy Polamalu on winning the appeal of his $10,000.00 fine by the NFL.

Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu won his appeal of a $10,000 fine for using a cell phone on the sidelines during a game Oct. 16 against Jacksonville, according to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.

Polamalu borrowed the phone from a team doctor after leaving the Jaguars game with concussion-like symptoms and called his wife to tell her he was OK.
The NFL prohibits the possession of cell phones in teams' bench areas 90 minutes before kickoff until the end of games.

He probably won for his demeanor on and off the field. Congrats to Troy nonetheless.
