I though it looked strange, but 10k is ridiculous. Confused

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

Then it's the same issue and same result. You see players constantly pulling their socks up because they know it's the rule. To have both socks that low isn't a matter of not having time to pull them up. He broke the established rules, plain and simple.

$10,000 is too much for having your socks too low. Sorry, no one could convince me otherwise.

Maybe they should just suspend him for the super bowl Very Happy . Seriously how ridiculous is it that you can't choose if you want long or short socks. I would think in a dome it might get a little hot. I would bring them down also.

Thank God, I was worried this crime was going to be unpunished. I mean really, it may be a violent sport, but we are still civilized! You could practically see his ankles! Last I checked, this was football, not a brothel!

It's a job that has a dress code. It's amazing to me that people don't recognize that 99% of jobs have dress codes. This is no different. He broke the dress code and was penalized for doing so. This isn't a matter of one coming down and him not noticing -- it was him deciding "I don't want to follow this rule".

Arguing the amount of the fine is one thing, but arguing that it's a stupid rule is laughable to me. Every sport has a dress code of some sort, some more stringent than others, but they all have them.

No it's stupid. The dress code at my job is to convey professionalism when facing a client. What, specifically, does wearing one's socks too low represent? I understand not wearing cleats that are branded and approved by the NFL, but Frank Gore, by wearing his socks lower, didn't effect branding efforts or anything of the sort.

Is it his first fine for a uniform violation? If not, that could explain the amount. Otherwise, perhaps because it was the NFCCG? Who knows.
