NFL Players Can Wear Red, White, & Blue On 9/11

The NFL will not fine players for paying tribute to the country by wearing red, white, and blue on 9/11.  There was speculation that the NFL fashion police would be out in full force.  The NFL decided to make the wise move.

The NFL has allowed players to wear pink while paying tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Several NFL players are planning to wear red, white, and blue gloves and cleats to pay tribute to the victims of 9/11.  Most of the players were also expecting to get fined by the NFL for doing so.

Bears linebacker Lance Briggs posted the following on Twitter: “Reebok great job on these gloves and shoes..looks like I’m getting fined this week. Lol! By far the best fine I will ever have to pay. Thanks…Fines for gloves could be as much as 5k..the shoes 8-10k I think. not 100% on the shoe fine.”

Reebok, which is currently the official outfitter of the NFL, sent cleats and gloves to multiple players.  The league informed all 32 teams that players are allowed to wear the special cleats and gloves to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks as long as the apparel is made by companies that have sponsorship deals with the NFL.
