Not every fine the NFL lets loose makes sense.
Last week the NFL fined Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward for wearing eye black during a game. Unfortunately the league didn't due any player background info to find a reason why he wore the eye black. If they did they would've found out Heyward had a great reason for breaking the league rule.
Cam Heyward wore eye black to honor his late father, Craig "Ironhead" Heyward.Craig Heyward, a former NFL fullback, battled cancer before his death in 2006.
The eye black says "Iron" under one eye and "Head" under the other. This week he faces an $11,576 fine for a second violation of the rules regarding the display of personal messages.
The NFL is wrong for this one.
I believe the NFL should have a code of conduct in regards to the uniform, but they should also give a little lead way to players who want to do certain things to honor a direct family member (mom, dad, sibling) who may have passed away due to an illness.
The league needs to address this rule soon before it gets out of hand.

It's funny that the NFL will fine you for stuff like this, but it's ok for you to rape a girl or to beat the crap out of your spouse. They're backwards af.
Goodell is a very vengeful person,the Steelers have been fined more than any other team in the Goodell era. He's mad because the Rooney's were the only organization who voted not to give Goodell full control over punishments.
