The NFL likes to control everything. Guys can get fined for not wearing their socks right, having a towel that is too long, and a whole host of ridiculous things. It is all about controlling the quality and appearance of the product that generates billions in revenue a year.
However, what it shouldn’t do is fine guys that just want to show their father who died from cancer some love.
NFL fined Cam Heyward exactly $5,787 for displaying personal message on his eye black, even if it was a tribute to his father, “Iron Head”.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 14, 2015
