Ny Daily News: NFL was prepared to eject Marshawn Lynch from Seahawks-Packers game over gold cleats

SEATTLE — Marshawn Lynch and the NFL just can’t seem to get along.

The Seattle Seahawks running back was all set to rock a pair of gold-painted cleats for Sunday’s NFC championship game against the Green Bay Packers at CenturyLink Field, a pair that, according to TMZ, was valued at $1,000.

But according to a report from FoxSports, the NFL planned to eject Lynch if he wore those cleats. They later softened their position, saying that Lynch would not play until he took off the offending (and we use that term loosely) cleats.

The league adheres to very strict uniform guidelines, and in the past, it has fined players for donning cleats that aren’t in line with the uniform code, and in the past, its fined players even for trying to represent good causes; last season, Bears receiver Brandon Marshall drew a fine for wearing green cleats in honor of mental health awareness

Not his first time at odds with the league, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has skipped required media opportunities and was fined $100k.

Lynch’s cleats, custom-made, by a designer with real gold flakes and without any cause at all, would be an obvious violation. Lynch has already had plenty of issues with the league; he drew a $100,000 fine earlier this year for his refusal to speak with the media. The running back has never had a problem refusing to listen to Roger Goodell and his cronies.

Less than a half-hour before game time, Seattle’s media relations department said the story was news to them, and they had no information as to whether Lynch would comply with the league’s request.

  • I am beyond excited for tonight’s @miamiheat Vice unveiling of not only the sick uniforms, the court, but of these bad boys my brother @bam1of1 will be rocking.
.
What do you all think about this Miami Vice color way? It has to go down as one of my favorites because I still remember as a kid watching the show every week. .
Ps make sure you pick up a game day program to see the story behind @dwyanewade ‘s custom’s from last week.

  • Let me start this post by writing what I think to myself every SINGLE day when I wake up ....... “Marcus, you are one of the luckiest individuals on earth, to be able to call this work. Being able to be healthy, and able to express yourself via paint on shoes in all leagues is a gift. Do not take this for granted. And never, ever forget, EVERYONE who has supported you, they are the reason you are able to do this”
.
So THANK YOU, I can’t express it enough. Each and every one of you right now drive me in ways I can’t begin to express. The joy I get when I get new projects, or when I have a kid come up to me at an event, or seeing the way my mom and dad light up as they see my work in action is something that brings chills and a smile to my heart. I can’t thank you enough. .
Today was an amazing day. My guy @bam1of1 just came by the studio, to not only sign my in game programs my dad so happily got me yesterday, but brought me one of the first ever @miamiheat black Miami Vice jerseys, which is SICK by the way. But, he also brought me a pair of kicks that you are not going to want to miss being unveiled tomorrow for the first Miami Vice night of the year. .
WOWWWWWWWWW! Ok sorry I’m pretty excited right now. Heading back into studio for an all nighter, and couldn’t be more pumped!!!

  • One of the coolest parts of my “job” is seeing how EXCITED guys get when they receive my customs. And my dude @stevanridley is no exception. I had a 12 hour window to do these and then 12 more hours to get them back to him in time for tonight’s Thursday Night Football. .
It’s safe to say he’s ready to go !!!!

  • Where do I start with this post...... Wow!!! Anyone who knows me, knows I been a @miamiheat fan since I can remember. I have had season tickets for over 13 years and was always one of those people that would grab one of the books at the door and go page by page seeing what cool stuff was in there. .
Tonight, for the first time ever I get to see my work in there. I can’t explain the joy this brings me. I still don’t think I’m cool though, just lucky I guess. :) .
A BIG thank you to @bam1of1 for coming to me to create these 1of1’s for the Home opener. He came by the studio and we chopped it up for over 2 hours bouncing ideas back and forth before we decided on a winner. Can’t wait to show you all what we are working on next.
