Five Atlanta Falcons players, Roddy White, Alge Crumpler, DeAngelo Hall, Chris Houston, and Joe Horn, were all fined by the NFL for violating uniform regulations with tributes to Michael Vick during a recent Monday Night Football game.
After White scored a touchdown, he displayed a “Free Mike Vick” t-shirt underneath his football jersey.
Crumpler, Hall, and Houston wore black eye strips with written tributes to Vick. The NFL said this was a violation because it “displayed an unauthorized personal message.” Hall also had a poster of Vick on the field during introductions of the players.
All four players were fined $10,000 each.
Horn pulled up White’s jersey to show the “Free Mike Vick” t-shirt and was fined $7,500.
The Atlanta Falcons lost the game that night, 34-14.
