NFL Won't Allow Player To Wear Green Cleats For Mental Health Awareness Week!

brandon marshall not allowed to wear green shoes for mental health awareness week

Who knew the color of athletes shoes was such a big deal??

In case you missed it, tons of NFL players, coaches, and refs donned pink apparel last week to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many will continue to do so throughout October!

Well this inspired one player to make a similarly inspirational fashion statement for a cause that meant a lot to him! That is, until the league shut it down!!

Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder back in 2011, so he announced he would wear green shoes during his Thursday night game in honor of Mental Health Awareness Week!

Sounds like a great idea, right? Well, the NFL didn't seem to think so, and they quickly told him he'd be fined if went through with it!

Brandon quickly fired back and said he'd wear the green cleats regardless, and to top it off, he'd make a donation to match whatever fine the league threw at him!

Sadly, the No Fun League was not about to be outdone, and they said the speedster wouldn't even be allowed to step on the field if he wore his special kicks!!

We don't understand why the NFL would care so much about the colors of Brandon's shoes, and to try and understand would probably be a waste of brain power!

But just by bringing it up in the first place, he has already brought attention to a GREAT cause without even having to put on his green cleats!

Well done, Brandon!
