Default NFL to allow special Sept. 11 tributes

Quote:
The story we reported Friday morning, about the likelihood that NFL players might be fined for wearing special Reebok apparel paying tribute to the 9/11 fallen, now has a happy ending.

The league that once threatened to fine Peyton Manning(notes) $25,000 for wearing high-top cleats in memory of the late Johnny Unitas has now decided that the specter of disallowing shoes and gloves that help memorialize the 10th anniversary of 9/11 would cause the kind of public relations nightmare that even the NFL itself couldn't quite get its arms around.

Thus, this Friday afternoon tweet from NFL spokesman Michael Signora:

It matches our uniforms (close enough). No reason for Texans not to go all out...

Doesn't look like proper NFL uniform material to me...

Then again, I believe the Middle East should be turned into a sheet of glass; let God sort out the mess.

What do I know?

I vote no fines, though...

I wish the Texans were doing an A&M style Red, White and Blue out. Our team has the perfect colors for it and the colts fans could blend in too. Would have been a cool 9/11 tribute.

The NFL has done a great job with the 911 tributes today

I'm curious if any Patriot players did this.

Considering the Pats uniforms and team colors, wouldn't that have been redundant?
