Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib watched the team's Week One game from a suite at Raymond James Stadium, which is nice, except that it's against NFL rules.

Talib was suspended for the opener following an off-field altercation in August 2009. One of the terms of the suspension was that the player could not attend their team's games, even as a spectator, according to NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello. By watching the Bucs' 17-14 win over the Browns, Talib may risk a further fine from the league office.                                                                                      

The way we see it  

It is unfortunate that Talib didn't know the rule banning him from the stadium, but even more unfortunate is that nobody in the organization bothered to tell him that he shouldn't show up to support his teammates.
