Portis/Taylor fined by the NFL

I found this funny. :rofl:

ASHBURN, Va. -- Redskins running back Clinton Portis and safety Sean Taylor were fined by the NFL on Thursday for uniform violations in last Sunday night's game against Philadelphia.

Portis was fined $20,000 for wearing black shoes, which did not match the rest of the team, and also for wearing striped socks and an unapproved eye shield. Taylor was hit for $5,000 for the striped socks.

The burgundy and gold striping made the socks look like barber shop polls. Taylor had them on both legs, Portis on one.

Last year, both were fined twice for socks violations, the first time $5,000 apiece and the second time $10,000.

/\ because it's a team sport....not a fashion contest. Those two guys are attention ###### who just want some press. They want to stand out from their teammates.

Fair enough... I just wasn't sure.

Edit: Now that I'm watching Los Angeles Lakers against Philadelphia 76'ers, I notice they are also wearing hte same color shoes/socks as their teamates... I guess I just never noticed before.

yea...In Basketball it doesn't seem to be a big deal if players don't wear team shoes (I guess because of shoe deals and stuff). But Football teams are pretty strict about their uniforms and keeping the "team" appeal and stuff.
