Roger Goodell Goes Full-On Grinch, Fines NFL Player for Christmas Cleats

Despite declining attendance, tanking ticket prices and falling TV ratings, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell refuses to require players to respectfully stand for the national anthem. However, Goodell has no problem regulating other aspects of player behavior as he showed in this total “Bah Humbug” move.

New Orleans Saints rookie running back Alvin Kamara received a nasty surprise from the NFL after wearing Christmas-themed cleats during their Christmas Eve game in a good-hearted attempt to spread a little Christmas cheer.

Kamara tweeted a picture showing the letter received from Goodell’s office informing him that he would be fined by the league. Kamara joked that he’d soon be starting a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for the fine:

Kamara received some moral support from fellow Saints RB Mark Ingram, telling the commissioner’s office “not to be the Grinch.”

“Don’t be a Grinch,” Ingram said, as reported by the Daily Caller. “It’s the Christmas season. It’s the Christmas spirit, man. How can you be mad at that? Do not be the Grinch.”
