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.

  • Just getting started... @yazmaniandvl ‘s custom 1of1 @dodgers catcher’s mitt. 
Who would you love to see rock a 1of1 glove? So far I have a couple catchers, but imagine a pitcher on the mound with a unique piece, ok I’m pumped for the season.

Be sure to catch my dude @aramisgarcia14 rocking this 1of1 @sfgiants glove this season.

Tag a player you think should be rocking a custom glove to match their cleats.

  • Still can’t believe this one happen. 
Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to team up with my good friend @drewbrees and design a cool 1of1 birthday gift for @theellenshow for her 39th birthday.  Had the chance to use my go to the @surface To develop a cool glitter toe gold fade to a matte black with a couple logos and other cool @saints Stuff.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELLEN, let me know whenever you need me on set ;) #SolesBySir #1of1 #customCleats #customKicks #ellen #theEllenShow #EllenDegeneres #DrewBrees #HappyBirthday #hiMom
  • I kept my brother @morganmoses_76 laced up all season in custom 1of1’s so it seemed only right to make sure I custom painted his Medical boot for him after surgery. 
I have a feeling this won’t be the last boot I get the chance to do. 
Tag your favorite doctor/surgeon/nurse that can enjoy this bad boy. Or your favorite player who needs to rock these after their surgery.

  • What an amazing experience it was to be able to team with @larryfitzgerald and @microsoft in creating and painting an oversized helmet for SuperBowl 52 in Minneapolis, MN. 
Larry and I had the chance to design a cool design on a Microsoft Surface Studio before I turned his vision into reality. It was an amazing, over the top experience that will go down as one of the cooler projects I have been a part of. 
Thank you to everyone involved, it truly was my pleasure to be a part of history.
