A ten grand fine for sporting green kicks? Only in the NFL.
It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so the NFL has doled out pink accessories to all players, coaches and refs to sport on Sundays (and Thursdays and Mondays). However, Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall wore green shoes instead.
He wore them for a good cause: Raising awareness for mental health issues.
However, since the shoes were not pink, or the prescribed team colors, the NFL hit him with a $10,500 fine. Ouch.
Here is the letter the league sent to Mr. Marshall.
