Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee has revealed that he was fined for posting a photograph featuring a naked Andrew Luck on Twitter.
The 26-year-old inadvertently snapped his famous teammate in the nude while taking a photo inside the locker room; however, fortunately for both players, not everything was revealed.
McAfee tweeted the photo – complete with the naked quarterback – to his 170,000 followers, who did not hesitate to retweet and favourite the image.
But the punter accepts that he deserved the fine – despite the fact he did not intend to catch Luck in his birthday suit.
"Yeah, I got fined," McAfee told the Indianapolis Star. "More than a dollar, less than $3 million, which is good news. But it was completely expected and completely warranted."
"I didn't realize it until I was halfway home and my girlfriend got a text message. I immediately started to sweat. I was disgusted. I was worried that Andrew was going to hate me because he's such a good person. The last thing you want to do is sell out a teammate. I felt like I did that."
McAfee went on to reveal that he apologised to Luck, who did not react badly to the incident.
"I called him like 400 times but his phone was off, his phone was off, his phone was off," McAfee added. "It was finally turned on and he answered. I said, 'Man, I am so sorry that happened.' He handled it so well, like the cool person he is. He said, 'No worries about it, dude.' I said, "If it means anything to you, you look good.' "
