There were several Jaguar players on TNF this week with teal cleats. If they don't also get fined then Marshall and Bennett will have a legitimate beef in an appeal. My understanding is that the uniform code is for black or white cleats only. That a player can't wear team color cleats is fumbfounding to me but that's really a separate argument. If the rules stipulate that the Bears players can't wear orange then they have to also stipulate that Jaguar players can't wear teal. Period. End of discussion.

Side bar: How dumb is it that these are actual discussions we are driven to have? /smh
It "fumbfounding" to me as well. Why would they just throw money away for no good reason. Heck, give it to charity rather than the power hungry bureaucrats running the League.

All fines in the NFL go to the charity of the players choice. The league does not keep that money.

But I will bet they cannot deduct it nor be recognized for their generosity. So, if a player is fined, can he direct that it go to a foundation that HE has established? You know like the Lawrence Taylor Home for Old Ho's?

Agreed. Fumbfounding, indeed.

And I guess that's what happens when your team is (was) 7-1.
