Any fan of the National Football League, or the NFL, knows that the acronym has been used to also diss the league. Many have called it the “No Fun League.” & with good reason. Today, Marshawn Lynch was fined $10,000 for wearing cleats that had logos of Skittles on them. Earlier this year he was fined $5,000 for wearing green socks. & there was Wes Welker, he was fined $10,000 for wearing a non-NFL sponsored hat while giving an interview. Then there was the ENTIRE Saints team who was fined for wearing green & red tape against Atlanta, in the means of celebrating Christmas. I mean, come on NFL. Is all this really necessary? Fines for late hits, maybe even celebrations, I can take. But for dress code violations? & the ridiculousness amount of the fines. $10,000? These violations aren’t that big of a deal. Its not like his cleats had some special motor on them that made him faster. Or his socks were any better than his opponents because they were green. No, they just weren’t NFL licensed apparel so instead of the NFL banking on profit, some other company, like Skittles, was. & you know why Skittles is now banking on the Lynch? Because they don’t have these dumb rules. Maybe instead of taking the fun out, the league execs should come up with a better way of marketing these ideas. Maybe allowing creative cleats, cool socks, & possible sideline apparel of other companies. I mean, they would be paying royalties to the NFL. Stop being that old school, boring ass company. Mix it up a little. Let’s freshen up the league. & paaaallllllleeeeeeeaaaaaassssssseeeee, can we bring back the end-zone celebrations? Divas or no divas, a majority of your league athletes are creative as shit.
