Lions DB Louis Delmas fined for wearing wrong socks

BY foxsports • September 20, 2013

The NFL fined Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas this week, but it wasn’t for an illegal block to the knees or helmet-to-helmet blow.

No, this was for wearing the wrong colored socks.

Delmas broke the uniform code established for the Lions when he wore black socks in Sunday’s game at Arizona. The Lions are supposed to wear blue or white socks.

It cost him $5,250.

“It is what it is,” Delmas told the Detroit News.

Lions defensive end Israel Idonije also got hit for $15,750 for a low hit on Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer, a week after defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was docked a whopping $100,000 for a controversial play in the opening game.
