NFL May Fine Players For Wearing Cleats Honoring Sept. 11 Victims

An NFL player’s decision to honor victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks may lead to a fine from the NFL.

Tennessee Titans linebacker Avery Williamson wore cleats bearing the date of the attack and “Never forget,” a popular refrain in the wake of the attacks. Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the attacks.

The NFL denied Williamson’s request to wear the shoes and threatened him with a fine for violating the league’s uniform code.

Williamson plans to auction the cleats with the proceeds going to a miliary charity

Also on Sunday, New York Giants receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz wore cleats honoring the victims of Sept. 11.

    Isn’t the “leadership” of the NFL just great. They will fine you for honoring those that gave their lives on 09-11-2001., They will not allow Dallas players to place a decal on their helmets honoring the five officers killed by a sniper. But, to disrespect our nation and flag, there’s just nothing they can do.
