While the majority of Giants and Bears players sported pink apparel Thursday night in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Week, Brandon Marshall decided to wear lime-green shoes in an effort to raise Mental Awareness.
As expected, the NFL fined Marshall $10,500, but the Bears wide receiver responded to his fine by tweeting a picture of the email he received from the NFL Wednesday morning.
Football is my platform not my purpose. This fine is nothing compared to the conversation started & awareness raised. pic.twitter.com/P9GNygFpH9— Machine Marshall (@BMarshall) October 16, 2013
