The NFL fining players for domestic violence and cancer awareness is wrong. Especially, when the NFL celebrates these awareness, itself.
“Another Steelers player, William Gay, was fined $5,787 as well for wearing purple cleats to bring attention to domestic violence, according to Kinkhabwala. Gay’s mother was killed in an act of domestic violence and he has worn purple cleats in each of the last two years to raise awareness, but received his first fine in 2015. Just last year, NFL.com ran a feature on his purple cleats and the cornerback is featured in the NFL’s domestic violence program.” – Reported by Adam Stites
