The NFL fined Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams was denied by the NFL to wear pink accessories during games all season. However, Williams’ daughters are having none of that and are wearing pink to support their dad.
NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted this picture of Williams’ daughters letting the NFL know you can’t fine us for wearing pink.

Williams was denied by the NFL to wear pink accessories to honor his mother who died to breast cancer outside the month of October, which is breast cancer awareness month. Now Williams has been fined for wearing eye black that says “Find the Cure”, and was fined $5,787 for his troubles.
Not really sure on why the NFL isn’t allowing the players to wear any color accessory when their is a great cause behind it, but to see Williams’s daughters support him must make him feel a little bit better.
His two biggest fans have his back.
