No fines (yet) for Pat McAfee's patriotic 9/11 cleats

Pat McAfee says he won't have to face a fine for his display of patriotism on 9/11.
INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Indianapolis Colts Punter Pat McAfee says he won't have to face a fine for his display of patriotism on 9/11.


McAfee posted an update to Twitter saying he hasn't had to pay any fine "thus far." He praised NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, saying "@NFLcommish is not a communist."
WTHR's Bob Kravitz noted the cleats on Sunday.



When Avery Williamson of the Tennessee Titans announced his plans to wear these shoes and then auction them for charity, the NFL called him and warned him about possible fines.


The league forbids players from wearing any sort of uniform or equipment that is not issued by their team or the league.


Williamson wore the shoes Sunday night anyway. No word on whether or not Goodell has decided on any fine for Williamsonl.

Odell Beckham Junior and Victor Cruz also wore themed footwear.
