    Whaaaaat?! Fined for wearing Yellow Cleats? Thats ridiculous. NFL needs to reevaluate their priorities when it comes to fining 30 people a week for random crap. If this is the case I want cheaper ticket prices!

    Yellow cleats? really? can we just let them play? This is worse than an end zone dance fine. Oh and I hate Jared Allen but he should be able to celebrate a sack any way he wants.

    The league has been doing this type of crap for years now. They get paid millions by some companies to force their players to wear that companies clothing/shoes. When they don't, they get fined. Or, as is the case here, if they don't wear the standard "assigned" apparel, they get fined.

    It has never been about "just letting them play." It's always been about trying to squeeze as much money out of the fans, and getting back as much money from players, as possible. But hey, it's a business. :dull:
