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

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.

  • For the third straight year I teamed up with the @usaa for the @nfl’s #MyCauseMyCleats initiative.

This season I had the amazing honor to get together with @christianmccaffrey of the @panthers to help bring to life a really cool pair of cleats. He chose to honor the @wwp on them while also coming up with a unique way to tell all of our troops THANK YOU.

I had an amazing time making these and truly feel lucky to be a part of this amazing story.

  • It’s funny how life works. Had the amazing pleasure of meeting and collaborating with @cgsavage8 while visiting with the @houstontexans a couple months, only to find out we grew up 5 minutes apart in Miami.

Truly was an honor helping him showcase both the Boys and Girls Club of Miami and bringing awareness to Dementia.

Even though we went to rival high schools, I snuck in his @coralgables_shs logo in there. However, Columbus pride all the way!

  • Had the amazing opportunity to team up with the @miamidolphins and @miamischools to help bring to life a unique design created by a @westmiamimiddle 8th grade student, Healy.

Her design was chosen from hundreds of entries. The idea was to design a concept around “Values Matter”, an intiative which promotes positive values for our youth.

Healy absolutely crushed it with her unique design. What was even more exciting is that I had the opportunity to bring it to life and @cwilkins42 will be rocking her design for the Dolphins next home game against the Bengals.

GREAT JOB HEALY! Can’t wait to make you your very own version of kicks to rock to the game as well.

  • Blessed and Thankful.

Yesterday, today, tomorrow, ups, downs, life lessons, failures, successes, it doesn’t matter.

  • For the past 60 days straight I have been working non stop on some pretty cool pairs for the @nfl’s #MyCauseMyCleats initiative.

It’s been a blast!

Here is a pair I worked on with the newest member of the 1of1 fam, Alejandro Villanueva of the @steelers. 
Alejandro served in the Army as a Captain and was an Army ranger who was decorated with a Bronze star for Valor.

My man @kstills rocking all red custom 1of1 @vans on this amazing play.

  • A little quick color splashing for my @houstontexans fam.

I went with a super high gloss for my dude @hitman37_ , mixed it up with half and half for @elguajirojairo , and went completely matte for the great @deandrehopkins.

Which is your favorite?

  • As I leave the studio at 2:41 am, I just want to say, THANK YOU.

This whole painting ride I have been on for the past 7 @nfl seasons has been out of a movie. I truly am blessed to be in the predicament I am. And NONE of it would be possible without the support EACH and EVERY one of you have given me for the past 7 years.

I wish there was a way to express just how thankful I am, but words can’t begin to explain it. So, before I begin my cooking adventures tonight for tomorrow, I want to wish you all a truly blessed thanksgiving with your families, loved ones, or whomever you get to spend the day with.

Never forget, smile, because it’s contagious.

#SolesBySir #1of1 #customCleats #Thankful
  • Clean toe Jordan 1’s for my man @jmilly67 of the @azcardinals.

Nothing I am thankful of more than when guys come back for more customs after their first pair. Always a blessing.
