Several NFL players didn’t take kindly to the NFL telling them they couldn’t wear their “Beats by Dre” headphones to games anymore. And so a lot of them ignored the rule. Now, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who’s appeared in advertisements for the headphone brand, has reportedly said the league is fining him $10,000 for his audio allegiance. He wore a pink pair of Beats over the weekend, and noted on Instagram that it was his way of supporting breast cancer awareness. He said his grandmother is a survivor.
Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman, who is also a paid spokesperson for the headphone brand, is also likely to be fined. He donned his Beats on Sunday, too, and like Kaepernick, also posted Instagram photos flaunting that he was breaking the new rule.

Here’s to hoping Dr. Dre foots the bill.
