In any case, pants over the knees, a shirt hanging out – and we’re discussing a T-shirt that cost $5 to make, and you’re getting $5,000 taken from you. Cushions over your knees, and I’m similar to, you truly believe that this little knee cushion covering my kneecap is going to influence, in the event that someone hits me, gauges 250 pounds, running 18 mph. I don’t do material science, yet on the off chance that I get hit, this won’t ensure me.
“It’s simply stuff like that [that] I feel like we can go to a superior understanding and disentangling things and not removing the cash from the pockets of the players who are placing cash into this whole game. It’s simply intense. It sucks to get fined for socks. Or then again in the center of the game, have somebody come up and it resembles, ‘Goodness, your shirt is out.’ I’m similar to, ‘Brother I’m not stressed over my pullover in the game.’ I’m stressed over what task do I have. A visor, this. Each one of those easily overlooked details that could be wiped out … stuff that shouldn’t be so exacting.”
Cleveland focus JC Tretter said he was fined $14,000 in the Beckham-Humphrey occurrence for attempting to help separate the battle.

“That is a standard that they’re attempting to execute, with the goal that individuals are coming in to pull you off a heap and after that more battles start,” Beckham said. “Yet, it’s much the same as, I’m attempting to split it up for my group and get the thing arranged and I have anyway a lot of cash leaving my pocket.”
Beckham said he intends to request his fine.
“It’s cash out of my future family and children’s pocket. It’s sufficient. I couldn’t care less if it’s $5. As yet taking cash from me,” Beckham said. “I simply wish they couldn’t stress over a portion of that stuff. Stress over the game. Stress over different things that are going on.”
