We all know that the NFL doesn’t mess around when it comes to players wearing anything other than Nike, their official outfitter. Just ask Robert Griffin III who has been fined twice in his young career for wearing adidas apparel.
However, Forbes has dug up a gem. Apparently, Cam Newton has been wearing tiny black clips on his face mask/visor with the Under Armour logo on it. Now that I see the above image courtesy of Forbes (click to enlarge), I can definitely remember seeing those clips, but never gave it a second thought.
In the same report, Forbes suggests Cam has been wearing those his entire career and was never penalized for it. That’s probably because the league didn’t notice. Until now. Will he be retroactively fined?
