Seattle Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch fined for Skittles cleats
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been fined $10,000 for wearing Skittles-themed cleats during the team's last game, The Seattle Times reported Friday.
Lynch violated the NFL's dress code by lacing up the Nike cleats emblazoned with images of the colorful candies during Seattle's 19-17 loss to San Francisco on Saturday.
The Seahawks' leading rusher was previously fined $5,000 for wearing green socks during Seattle's Monday night matchup against St. Louis on Dec. 12.
Lynch's passion for Skittles dates back to high school, according to The Times. The former first-round draft pick reportedly snacks on the candies after scoring touchdowns, and fans in Seattle have begun throwing packages of Skittles into the end zone after Lynch crosses the goal line.
Last month, after a monster game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Lynch was offered a two-year supply of the candy by Skittles and a custom dispenser for his locker after the running back was seen snacking on the candy after a touchdown.
