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.
