FOXBORO -- Patriots head coach Bill Belichick released a brief statement Wednesday regarding his 50,000 fine for impermissible physical contact with a league official.
The came via New England's official Twitter feed:

"It was inappropriate for me to contact the official. I take responsibility for what happened. I accept the discipline and I apologize for the incident Sunday night in Baltimore."
Belichick said earlier in the week he contacted the ref after New England's 31-30 loss in Baltimore to get an explanation on the Ravens' game-winning field goal.
