Tarell Brown, San Francisco cornerback, was miffed enough at the NFL for fining him that he decided to tweet a picture of the letter detailing his penalty.

Unfortunately, Brown clearly didn’t look close enough before going public with his chastisement, because if he had, he would have noticed the login information and his case pin number displayed in plain view for anyone who wished to log in to the secure NFl site.

The NFL has since changed the login information, but not before allowing his followers and members of the media to access the appeal site. Brown is being fined $5,250 for wearing red sleeves as a part of his uniform instead of the white sleeves he was supposed to be wearing during the September 16 game against the Detroit Lions.
