This Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and it means lots of red, white, and blue football equipment on display,despite the threat of potential fines from the league.
Here’s an excerpt and video from Newsy that explores some of the commercial underpinnings behind the 9/11 gear. Is Reebok diluting the message:
It’s been said the NFL stands for “No Fun League,” for the way it strictly polices its players’ celebrations and uniforms. Now that moniker will be challenged again.
WFLD hosts talk about what the Bears’ Lance Briggs is planning for Sunday, the ten year anniversary of the 9/11 tragedies.
“He’s saying basically, ‘I’m going to wear red, white, and blue spikes.’ And what happens when you’re out of uniform for the National Football League? You get fined big time. And his quote was ‘This will be the biggest fine I’ve ever had.’ Perhaps it will be well worth it.”
