These fines are ridiculous.
"So I guess you guys..." Who are you talking to Daseal?

The argument the NFL makes, and it makes sense, is that then everyone is going to want to start using their uniform as a message board essentially to pay tribute to lost loved ones. LaVar would draw something for his deceased cousin. Coles might have a high school teammate who passed away that he wants to honor. Jacobs an old pop warner coach. It could go on and on

My personal feeling is that while that argument makes sense exceptions should be made when you're paying tribute to a fellow NFL player

The NFL can force guys to wear someone's number on the back of their helmet they never met, but can't allow his longtime teammate to keep it? You're talking about apples and oranges and you know your analogy weak. Be realistic. Everyone wants to honor Pat Tillman left and right, then a former player says he wants to leave him on his helmet and they get uppity? Peyton Manning wants to wear Unitas esque shoes? Who cares! Maybe this is where the younger generation, such as myself gets to hear first-hand stories about Unitas.


The sock thing I understand, but don't agree with. It's simply too trivial but they know the problem with it. However, the NFL can force you to honor someone then force you to stop? That's outragious.

Oh, and smoot, you know exactly who I was talking to. Everyone that thinks that these little fines for nothing are deserved.

All I'm saying Daseal is that the NFL says that it's one thing for everyone to honor a player but it's another if one individual decides he wants to honor someone (let's Plummer honoring Tillman) then another player will want to honor someone else and another one someone else, and what the NFL want is uniformity (pun intended)

Tillman is a special exception. Form a committee to accept those type of things. I believe Plummer decided to eat the fines and wear it anyways, not completely sure. Does the NFL release a list of all the fines they dish out every week?
