Want to see what an official NFL fine looks like?

You're in luck, thanks to Antonio Brown and his never-ending quest to tarnish his legacy. After getting fined by the Raiders for failing to participate in a team walkthrough on Aug. 22, Brown took to Instagram to post the goods:

Yeah. That’s much better than just posting the notice of the fine.

Brown doubled down, adding his own commentary to the situation, saying:

"When your own team want to hate but there's no stopping me now devil is a lie. Everyone got to pay this year so we clear."

If you have no idea what that means, join the club. I'm not sure what Brown is going for here, but it's not an ideal tone to be certain.

Oh, and he tagged the Raiders for good measure.

Arguably the better part of this post, however, is the entire notice itself from Raiders GM Mike Mayock.

"As you know, you did not participate in the Raiders' walk through on August 22. Your absence from practice was unexcused. Accordingly, you are hereby fined $13,950 pursuant to Article 42, Section 1 (a)(viii) of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement and the Raiders' Club Discipline Schedule."

You gotta love it. First there were frostbitten feet. Then there was a long, wild battle over which helmet Brown would wear this year. Now, there are fines — and public displays bashing those fines.

I bet the Raiders are just thrilled with their three-year, $50.1 million investment right now.
