Touchdown tribute

TORONTO Argonauts receiver Arland Bruce was fined an undisclosed amount by the Canadian Football League on Thursday because it wasn't thrilled with his tribute to Michael Jackson after scoring a touchdown. The league announced an undisclosed amount for Bruce's "excessive actions." After scoring to put Toronto ahead 6-0 in the match on Wednesday, Bruce removed his helmet, shoulder pads and uniform top, then laid down in the end zone. Bruce said he was honoring the memory of Jackson by pretending to be buried. Bruce received two objectionable conduct penalties for his actions during the game, which the Argonauts won 30-17. Toronto coach Bart Andrus said "next time around he will celebrate in an appropriate manner."
