Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb was fined by the NFL for a rather peculiar reason this week.
While Aaron Rodgers was only fined $14K for breaching COVID protocols for unvaccinated players all year long, Lamb was fined even more for not tucking in his jersey for a game.
CeeDee Lamb was fined $20k for having his jersey untucked last week. Aaron Rodgers was fined $14k for ignoring COVID protocols all season. I get the enforcement rules are different, but it just looks bad and doesn’t add up.

When speaking on the situation, CeeDee Lamb admitted that he’s “confused” why the NFL is seeking him out.
“Annoy me? Nah. Confuse me a lot? Very much so yes,” Lamb said, via ESPN. “I just don’t understand why I’m always the one getting fined for some reason. Untucked jersey. I don’t know.”

CeeDee Lamb would elaborate when asked about the ridiculous fine.
“Like, I don’t know what I need to do honestly,” Lamb said. “I just know for sure I’m more conscious of it. … Post-tackle or anything, I guess I got to look down, pull my jersey down. Stuff like that. It’s weird. It’s very weird, considering the next time I get caught with my jersey untucked, I heard I get fined like $50,000 or something. That’s weird.”
The NFL has looked pretty bad lately. Between the awful new taunting crackdown, arrests around the league, emails leak, etc, the last thing anybody should be worried about is whether CeeDee Lamb’s jersey is tucked in during game day.
