NFL's 'Grinch' fine for cleats inspires charity

NFL's 'Grinch' fine for cleats inspires charity

The New Orleans Saints running back was fined $6,079 for wearing red, Christmas-themed cleats during Sunday's 23-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

"It was worth it", Kamara said.

Kamara's cleats were created to look like red Christmas stockings.

Kamara seemed to confirm the fine with a December 28 tweet that included a picture of an envelope with a "NFL fine letter" label on it.

The Grinch officially stole Christmas for Alvin Kamara.

Kamara will have the fine deducted from his paycheck directly and says he's going to put the money raised from the GoFundMe account toward buying cleats for youth teams at the Willie Hall Playground in New Orleans.

But most players switched back to regular NFL-compliant footwear designs matching their uniforms before kickoff.

There's no word on what color the cleats will be that Kamara donates. "It's the Christmas season".

Kamara, a Pro Bowl running back, is tied for second in the National Football League with 12 total touchdowns and is a favorite to win rookie of the year with more than 1,300 all-purpose yards. How can you be mad at that? "After the game I said that I would make a gofundme for the fine and donate the proceeds to charity soooo. here we are", Kamara wrote on the GoFundMe page.
