The NFL is getting out of control.
 
The NFL just fined Frank Gore 10,500 dollars for wearing his socks too low. Hilarious! C'mon Really Hilarious!


As per schefter on FB. I'll try and find a link.

The NFL has fined Frank Gore $10,500 for wearing his socks too low during the NFC Championship Game, according to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter.
Gore had his socks at ankle level against the Falcons on Sunday. The NFL has a policy where socks need to be pulled up to the knee level.

Dear Offseason,

I hate you.

TonyR 01-23-2013 01:37 PM

It's funny, I noticed during the game he often had his lower legs exposed college style and thinking "isn't that against the rules?" I guess my question has been answered, and Gore is paying for it.

Does anyone remember what punishment the NFL handed down to Ray Lewis, if any?

bpc 01-23-2013 01:57 PM

I saw him in the first half and second half like that. Rules are rules.

I noticed it too during the first half of the game, but didn't pay much attention afterwards.

Hard to believe it led to a fine.

He should have just tripped Thomas at the 5 and nobody would have noticed.

i doubt that happens. i believe schefter has said many times on ESPN today that he didn't expect anything to come of it other than Brady apologizing to Reed.
which is BS because he intentionally slide and kicked his leg up.

I'd like to fine the Comish $10K for behavior unbecoming to The Clown Club of America.

Guessing so far no one that has posted is in management.

Uniforms are made to be worn in a prescribed manner. Hence the name uniform.

If you think it is to petty watch the lingerie football league. And pray someone is out of uniform.

It is going to be a very long offseason.

Ratboy 01-23-2013 11:40 PM

I want to compare this with military regulations for uniforms, but I certainly don't get paperworker unless it's a reccuring issue.

01-23-2013 11:44 PM

What happens to all the money that is paid out in fines each year? Some kind of general retirement fund? Or hookers and booze for the Comish?

They are used for charitable purposes.

Just as I suspected. Hookers and booze.

Bardy was fined with 10.000 . Gore 10.500. This is a joke.

01-25-2013 02:21 PM

The socks has been a rule for years now and is a very well known rule. He chose to deliberately go against the rule. I could care less what they fined him.

so is kicking other players...

This is nothing new. Eric Davis played in a pro bowl. He wore a jersey too small that kept coming out untucked, because it was too small. The uniform was provided by the NFL. He was fined 10,000 dollars for wearing it untucked. Untucked because it was too small. A uniform that the NFL gave him to wear. I'm stressing the stupidity in this cause this is about a sabotage as you can get.

I believe the correct term or name is NFL charities.

Which ironically is tax decuctable for them. Those billionaires find ways to cut their profit as well as being tax cheats. (or as the libs would say)

The NFL itself is tax exempt. A "non profit"

Mogulseeker 01-25-2013 04:24 PM

I have no problem with it.... wear your uniform correctly.

simple concept when you think about it..

most companies have standards all the airlines do most car rental companies do and in fact any company that provides uniform pieces of any sort have rules on how to wear them to be presentable in public..

if the moron wants to wear his socks on his penis at home they do not care.. once he hits the public view well they want them on his feet.. not FOOT..
