The NFL demands that its game-day uniform look be, well, uniform and San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore will pay for failing to conform in the NFC championship game Sunday.
Gore has been fined $10,500 for his slouchy socks, ESPN reports.
Not made up as much as it sounds like it: NFL fined 49ers RB Frank Gore $10,500 for wearing his socks too low during NFC Championship Game.

Gore was fined the same amount for throwing the ball into the stands after scoring in the regular-season finale. And don’t blame the NFL solely for this. The fine guidelines are part of the collective bargaining agreement.
