The NFL uniform police have cracked down on Matthew Stafford for not conforming to the pink rule. The Lions star was fined $5, 787 for wearing all blue cleats.
Fine for first uniform-related offense is $5,787, which would logically be the number the NFL docked Lions QB Matthew Stafford.

Stafford said he wore the same cleats throughout the preseason and in the Lions’ first three games. He also recalled that former Lions Ndamukong Suh and Reggie Bush wore the same shoes each game last season.
Stafford plans to appeal the fine.
