NFL Says Players Wearing 9/11 Tribute Will Be Fined. Police Union Offers to Pay All Fines.

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.

If everyone would stop supporting "The Nation Felony League", it would hit their wallet and the trash would lose their career.

Disrespect the flag and National Anthem & Goodell and owners offer weak tea responses.

Choose not to wear shoes aligned with NFL ad dollars and get fined.

Like many others I'm just fed up with the idiots on the field and the Commissioner.

If there is any more of this nonsense today all the NFL stuff moves to the attic. My team is successful and projected to do well but I'll put them on the shelf. They need to rein in their employees.

The NFL needs to remember who truly supports them - the kneelers or the patriots.

HUGE mistake by them.
