So bradys ty cobb slide is fined the same amount as socks being to low. Brady should have been fined a lot more. Just my opinion


Oh my gosh...

Read through the thread. Gore is a second time offender and Brady is a first time offender with no history of "dirty" play. Thus, Gore received the agreed upon penalty as set out in the CBA, while Brady received the minimum punishment mandated by the CBA.

Players know the rules. He shouldn't have worn his socks low.



Agreed. My question is why do they have a rule about socks in the first place?

That's the thing though: Rules change. They change all the time. The kick off line was arbitrary too. The league decided perhaps it'd better if they changed the arbitrary point at which teams kicked off, so they changed it.

Keeping a rule in place and then never ever ever EVER questioning ebcause it's been around forever and cus the NFL said so isn't commendable behavior, it's stubborness.
And ... what? Replacing one arbitrary rule with another equally arbitrary rule is commendable? Replacing an arbitrary rule just for the sake of because is equally arbitrary.

That's the point you're missing. "This rule is stupid, so I shouldn't have to follow it." Because, why exactly? Why is this rule any less ridiculous than any of the other uniform rules? Why restrict shoe colors? Why disallow messages on eye black? Why are any of these things less arbitrary or objectionable?

And again, why can they fine for wearing the wrong socks but not for wearing the right socks the wrong way?


It's not equally arbitrary. Gore did it because he thought he'd play better.

You have to draw the line somewhere or else you know some guys would just wear some ridiculous stuff to get attention. I guess they drew their line at sock height.

I understand why people think it is silly that players get fined, but nothing else is going to enforce them to follow the rules.

Well, you have two choices when establishing rules like that. You can either make them fairly lax, and then adjust them as incidents arise, or you can make everything very cut and dry and strict from the get go, and avoid issues initially. In a sport that draws so many viewers, it is far better to just be safe in advance.

Yeah I see where they're coming from with the rule, but at the same time...it's socks Laughing

Not my money though, and I'm pretty sure it gets donated to charity, so it's nothing big at the end of the day

Right, so it shouldn't be that difficult of a rule to follow. If it's so absurd, then the NFLPA should have contested it during CBA negotiations.

It's not equally arbitrary. Gore did it because he thought he'd play better.
First thought unrelated to the second. It is equally arbitrary. If you make an arbitrary rule, you're necessarily being arbitrary with where you decide to draw the line. If you decide to move the line, you're still being arbitrary. That's just the nature of it.

And that Gore thought he'd play better is irrelevant. I'm sure a lot of players think they'll play better without the pads next year, too. Doesn't mean they won't be fined if they don't wear them. (I intentionally avoided the most obvious PED analogy here so we hopefully won't miss the forest because of all the trees.)
