Was that Fake? NFL fines Pittsburgh Steelers for protest

Did the NFL fine each Pittsburgh Steelers player a million bucks for staying in the locker room during the national anthem?

The story claims NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced the punishment for the players who protested after the game on Sunday. The source: TheLastLineofDefense.org, which is a fake news site.It says so right in the "about" section. 

Other outrageous headlines, it's posted: "Justice Department Fines NFL One Billion Dollars", "Jerry Jones Forced to Sell the Cowboys After Giving America the Finger", and "Traitor Tim Tebow Takes a Knee During the National Anthem". Fake news. So if you see them, don't share them.
