It’s no accident some say NFL stands for “No Fun League.”
This week, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick received a $10,000 fine for wearing the wrong brand of headphones to a post-game press conference on Sunday, Oct. 5.
The NFL has an exclusive endorsement deal with Bose, so showing up in a game-related situation wearing a competitor’s product is a no-go -- even for Kaepernick, who was wearing a hot pink pair of Beats by Dre headphones to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month. He noted via Instagram, "I support breast cancer awareness! My grandma is a survivor!....... *shrugs* some things are now important!"
