49ers, Athletics, Warriors = Life!
49ers = 12-4
Warriors = 51-31 Making it rain!
A's = 59-36 Back to Back AL West Champs!
And, the closest thing I'd say you could find to that -- actually dangerous and malicious plays -- have always been met with steeper fines than $10.5k.
However, like I said, the two are unrelated. The penalty for showing up to work out of uniform and willfully refusing to fix the problem results in being sent home and a day's pay gone.... at the least.
Every job I've ever worked has had a very simple policy if you show up violating the uniform policy: Go home and change and come back (resulting in lost pay) or go home (resulting in the loss of an entire day's pay).
Gore lost about 65% of a day's pay due to the fact that he knowingly showed up to work in violation of the uniform policy of the NFL, which he has agreed to follow, or face consequences, by voluntarily entering into an employment contract with the NFL via the CBA and the NFLPA... with full knowledge of the rules, stipulations, and consequences that would follow.
There's no foul here. There's nothing wrong. It's business as usual.
So yes, I don't give a **** what the rule is, if you show up to work in willful violation of your company's uniform policy, you are going to lose wages. Period.
I was using an example just like you did when you brought real life jobs into it. (example)Brady got 500 less for something far more malicious than wearing your socks to low. The rules are the rules i get it that's not what im arguing. IMO they need to reevaluate the penalties for the violations. There should be no way a guy who wears his socks to low or forgets to tuck his shirt in should be fined as much as a guy who tried to hurt some one.
Which is it? Do they fine them too much for UR, or not enough?
The sock fine is not up for debate. It is fair. That is the starting point.
Well if the fine has to be 10k for a dress code violation then yes the others should go up imo.
Quit pretending all jobs and standards are created equal. They aren't. It's hyperbolic and it is stupid. The 49ers don't care, the fans don't care.
And stop committing the fallacy which assumes rules means the actual practice is ethical or correct. A law being law does not make that law right.
