THE NO FUN LEAGUE. I agree with a lot of the NFL’s rules against player improvisation, especially when it comes to their uniforms. But this is a bit over the top: The NFL said no to Indianapolis Colts QB Peyton Manning’s request to wear black high-top shoes for Sunday’s home game against the Miami Dolphins.
AP says, “The league said in a statement Friday that no team other than the Baltimore Ravens will be allowed to wear a patch or armband on their uniforms during Sunday’s games to honor Unitas.”
I don’t see a problem with the QB of the Colts wearing black high-tops to honor the former Colt who made them his trademark.
