"I BRING THE JUICE!"-Raiders LB Sio Moore
It would be nice to stick it to the league if both teams played the entire Super Bowl, biggest game of the year, coming off of this ridiculous fine, were to wear their socks this low to show up Goodell. (all 106 players) I would be in heaven.
The point is, A isn't worse than B. A is completely different than B. They are unrelated. "Worse" is a comparative implying degree, which only works in terms of comparable offesnses. These two are not comparable, therefore, comparisons don't work.
They're unrelated, and therefore the price for one compared to the other is meaningless and irrelevant. You're still creating a false comparison.
frank gore is fined but demarco murray can free ball with no fine? BS
We Want Winston
This officially puts Gore on my least favorite athlete list. ****ing scum bag.
49ers, Athletics, Warriors = Life!
49ers = 7-5
Warriors = 16-2 Making it rain!
If you don't have a uniform policy, you don't have one. The NFL does, just like most other jobs. If your's doesn't, then good for you.
If you do, and it requires a lab coat, but is not specific of the color, then no, by my logic, you should not be fined. If you do, and it does require a specific color of lab coat, and you knowingly and intentionally wear the wrong color, you should be subject to the consequences outlined when you signed on for employment.
You can try to pretend the NFL isn't a job just like other jobs, but it is. Frank Gore, as a member of the NFLPA, signed a CBA, which includes subjecting himself to the authority of the NFL's rules, including their uniform policy, and subjecting himself to the subsequent consequences for intentional violations of those rules.
This isn't hard guys. It's employment 101. You sign a contract, you are accountable to that contract.
It's remarkable that real injustices happen in the workplace every day and we're trying to defend a millionaire for willfully breaking a rule he entered into voluntarily and then intentionally violated. It's utterly remarkable.
Everyone needs to grow the **** up. It's seriously like talking to children with no real world work experience.
Stop defending an organization because they are upholding a standard, because they aren't, it's an excuse to fine someone.
