It’s a nice change of pace to see players respecting their country instead of sitting during the anthem. Reports are claiming that various players in the NFL will be wearing commemorative 9/11 cleats. The NFL has decided to fine those players for not following the uniform policy, but the police union has decided to stand behind those players supporting the 15th anniversary of 9/11 by offering to pay their fines.
One case, in particular, involves Tennesse Titan linebacker, Avery Williamson. Williamson was told by the NFL that if he wears any cleats other than the team approved ones, he will be fined to the maximum amount. The Port Authority Police Benevolent Association wasn’t having any of that. The Police Benevolent Association and another police union say they will pay Williamson’s fines.
