Default Frank Gore fined for uniform violations

The NFL has fined 49'ers RB Frank Gore for what has been dubbed PES (Performance Enhancing Socks). The NFL's fine totals at $10,500. Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league will immediately begin testing for PES's before every game. All other League funded testing programs will be stopped until a permanent solution has been found for PES.

Seriously though, the NFL really did fine Gore for wearing his socks to low.

it's considered performance enhancing to wear your socks lower? Is this real?

This is why the NFL is an absolute joke. This includes Roger Goodell, who may be the worst commissioner in sports.

The 49ers had players fined for wearing all white socks last year instead of the one white sock and the one red socks

Everything you wear on an NFL field has a dress code to it, I believe Randy Moss use to get fined a lot for it. If I'm not mistaken, all of the gloves/sweat bands/accessories have to be licensed NFL apparel.

Sean Taylor got the same fine. He wore different looking socks than the rest of the team one week, I can't remember what the reason was. It's because the uniform is not in conformity with the standards established by the NFL and the contracts previously agreed to by different clothing manufacturers.....can't wear UA shoes if you have an agreement with Nike. As far as PES that sounds like total bullshit.

Goodell was schooled by Tagliabue a few months ago.

I remember one instance where a QB was fined for wearing a cross on his hat in an after game interview.

This was before Goodell
