Cam Newton fined $10k by NFL



For wearing these:



quote:

When Forbes noticed that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had been displaying the Under Armour logo on his helmet in the subtle form of the clips that hold on his visor, the NFL wasn't going to let that uniform violation slide without doing something.

And the infraction cost Newton $10,000. The cost of those clips at your local sporting goods store? Just $9.99. Ouch.

UA will probably not only pay the fine but send him a ton of those clips free with the understanding that they'll keep paying the fines.

i don't think the fines will be all if he keeps it up..the fines will be more and then suspensions will happen. his sponsor won't be able to pay his suspension. The team will be required to check his uniform and helmet going forward and they may be fined as well. Whether peeps like it or not it is contract related..Just like the mcdonald employee can't wear a burger king outfit to work. yo

This. It may sound dumb to us but there is a lot of money in those contracts.

Yep. Nike pays a ton of money to be the only emblem displayed on Sundays. Its not stupid, its just the nature of business.
