Reggie's fine for his Shoes...WTF?

Reggie's fine for his Shoes...WTF?

I read that the NFL is going to fine Reggie for his shoes...One article said it was because they had gold toes and cleats, another one said its because they weren't Nike's...The man has a contract with Adidas...If he wants to wear adidas let the man wear Adidas...Is that what this is about???

As far as the gold is concerend I think he should be allowed to wear his team colors on his shoes if he wants...I say show the new commish what that team is made of and everybody on the team where those style cleats, then everybody will match...I know that is what this is all really about...The NFL wanting everyone to look the same, soldierish...This ain't 1950!!!

RE: Reggie

It's because they are Adidas. If the shoe brand was Nike, Under Armor, or one of the other NFL brands, there would not be a problem. Bush's contract is with Adidas - which is not an NFL brand.

Don't worry, he's only getting fined $1,000 - $2,000. (I think. I heard it's a REALLY low number like that.)

RE: Reggie

The man should be able to wear whatever brand of cleats he wants as long as they're football cleats. What's next? Is the NFL going to fine Chad Johnson for wearing a gold mohawk & matching earring. That's simply childish. Let the man wear whatever brand shoes he wants!

RE: Reggie

Unless someone has a link, I have a hard time believing that he is getting fined for the name brand of the shoes. 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. I'm pretty sure he is getting fined for the gold on the shoes. Thats what the commentators said at the beggining of the game.

RE: Reggie

Still & all......what's wrong with a guy wearing his team colors on his shoes? To me that says: "I have pride in my team colors." That is something this team needs. They should all wear the black & gold shoes Reggie had on.

RE: Reggie

It can't be for the color. They're team colors. It's a business issue.

Why did they sign with Adidas? I don't know. I only assume that the deal was more lucrative and they could afford to pay a fine for every game.

I agree, a fine for the color of your shoes, come on, thats just retarted. But didn't Portis get a fine for his socks last season?

Guess I'm one of the few who thinks uniformity in the NFL is a good thing.

I thought this was uniformity:

They should all wear the black & gold shoes Reggie had on.
