George Kittle, the San Francisco 49ers’ tight end, has been fined
3,699 by the NFL for wearing a “F*** Dallas” shirt during the game against the Cowboys. Despite the financial repercussions, Kittle remains unapologetic and maintains that he would make the same choice again. If both teams make it to the playoffs, Kittle could face the Cowboys once again, adding extra intrigue to a potential rematch.
The Fine and Its Justification
According to reliable sources, the NFL has imposed a fine of $13,699 on Kittle for his choice of attire that featured an expletive directed at the Cowboys. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that the league categorized the shirt as “abusive language.” However, the NFL has refrained from making any official statements regarding the punishment.
Kittle’s Response and Finances
While the fine may dent the wallet of an average player, it is unlikely to cause financial strain for Kittle. The talented tight end, who recently signed a lucrative five-year, $75 million contract, expressed in interviews that he has no regrets about wearing the controversial shirt. In fact, Kittle boldly asserted that it was “100 percent” worth it and added, “I’d do it again.”
Potential Playoff Showdown
Although Kittle won’t have the opportunity to sport the provocative shirt during the regular season, both the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys have a chance to make it to the playoffs. If this scenario unfolds, Kittle could potentially face off against the Cowboys once again, much to the dismay of Dallas fans.
