NFL fines Holmes $10,000 for Super Bowl TD celebration; it should have been a 15 yd penalty too-Would that have changed the outcome?

The National Football League has fined Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes $10,000 for his fourth quarter touchdown celebration during the Super Bowl.

Two weeks ago, NFL vice president of officiating Mike Pereira said the celebration should have drawn a 15-yard penalty on the following kickoff. Such penalties result in an automatic $10,000 fine.

The ref's missed the call. I sure would have liked to have seen the last minute of the Super Bowl with AZ 15 yards closer.
