That would just be rediculous and stupid on Reggie's part for signing a contract with a name brand shoe he isn't allowed to wear during a game.
Not at all, I bet that Adidas wants to become an NFL brand and what better than signing the stars of tomorrow to get the attention needed to get it done.

Hold the presses, big guys! This being one person who has seen these shoes pretty close up. this ain't your regular gold, (as in Saints uniform gold) this is gold, as in grill gold. Some of these guys have their gold grills(teeth) Reggie has gold cleats. And folks these cleats are gold. They can blind you when the sun hits them. All in all, I for one think it's pretty harmless, but the league has rules and it's up to them to make them up as they go along.

The article I read stated that the league wanted Reggie to tape over the gold on the toes....another said it was because the actual cleats are gold...yet another article stated that it was because the shoes were Adidas...Not sure what to believe the official NFL site had nothing to say about it...the other articles were on saintsreport.com and espn.com...too lazy to go find them again

Anybody wanna place money on Adidas picking up the tab for any fines for the rest of Reggie's career? I am sure he does not care one lick if they fine him or not.

I hope they do pay the fine if adidas won't I'd make my jackass marketing agent pay it...

I heard it before the game on (Sirius NFL Radio) that Adidas agreed to pick up the tab. The league sent him a letter tell him that he would be fined if he wore those cleats.

It was because of the brand. Adidas picked up the fine.
