Wow, this is kinda a surprise. Bears LB L.Briggs said he expected to be fined by Roger Goodell on Sunday cause he was going to wear Red-White and Blue in Honor of the victims of 9/11 on it's 10 year anniversary. But now, the league says players CAN wear those colors. So, does anyone think any Steelers will be wearing them on Sunday at Baltimore ?

The league office informed all 32 teams today that players are allowed to wear special shoes and gloves to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, as long as those special shoes and gloves are made by companies that have sponsorship deals with the NFL.

Ah, so THAT'S why Roger is allowing it. ONLY if the special Gloves and shoes are from a specific NFL company that has a deal with the league. Anything to get an extra Dollar in your pocket hey Goodell ?
