As you can see in the photo above, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was rocking some neon green cleats last weekend when the team wore their alternate all-grey uniforms against the Houston Texans. While the shoes looked pretty slick with the secondary look, the NFL was not very impressed.
The NFL uniform police took notice of the shoes — it was pretty hard not too — so they once again fined Lynch for not wearing the same color shoes as his teammates which is required by the league.
Lynch’s fine totaled $5,250, but it’s not the first and likely not the last time that he will receive a bill from the league because of a uniform violation.
It doesn’t hurt anyone to add their own flair to the team uniform, but this is the NFL and Roger Goodell likes to deliver a weekly reminder that it stands for the No Fun League.
Perhaps next time Lynch is going to go against the grain and wear cleats that will receive a fine, he should rock some $100 bill cleats.
