“Two days after more than 100 people in Paris were murdered by terrorists, the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport went on the air to cite anonymous league sources who said this:
“Do not be surprised if this is like it was after Sandy Hook a couple years ago, where players will not be fined for showing support.”
Spin it back: Players who make minor alterations to their football uniforms to honor victims of a senseless tragedy probably won’t get punished.
The fact that this is a thing that actually needs to be said out loud says everything you need to know about the NFL’s sense of compassion. Because it does have to be said out loud. Because the NFL constantly fines players who make minor football uniform alterations to pay tribute to people whose situations are weighing on their hearts.”
The NFL office has no idea what it is doing. That’s the only explanation for this.
The NFL seriously has to tell us ‘do not be surprised’ if they don’t fine players for Paris tributes – SBNation.com
