1. Denmark was knocked out of the Euro 2012 tournament on Sunday by Germany. But forward Nicklas Bendtner, one of the team’s best players, should feel the effects of the tournament for a while.
Bendtner was fined $126,000 by UEFA for “improper conduct.” Only 24, Bendtner plays for Arsenal in the English Premier League, though he spent last season in Sunderland on loan. Regardless of how much money he makes, that’s a hefty fine, particularly considering the other indiscretions that UEFA could be worrying about during this tournament — you know, racism, nations fighting each other, etc.
