REPORT: After being fined for ‘Man Of God’ headband, NFL player blesses hospital with HUGE donation
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by DAILYCALLER.COM:
New Orleans Saints linebacker, Demario Davis, posted to Instagram on Tuesday to share the outcome of his appeal of the $7,017 fine by The National Football League for wearing a religious headband during a game. His headband displayed the phrase ‘Man of God’.
League rules prohibit players from “wearing, displaying, or otherwise conveying personal messages” during game day events, unless they are approved by the NFL. Fortunately, the NFL often rescinds fines in these cases when a player demonstrates an understanding of the rule and compliance moving forward, a league source told CNN.
The article goes on to state the following:
Davis made an appeal case to the NFL and began selling the headbands. He raised over $30,000 for his hometown hospital, St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi.
“So my agent just told me that I won my appeal and won’t have to pay the headband fine,” Davis reported on Instagram. “Always glory above so I’m taking every penny of that original $7,017 fine and donating it to @stdomhospital anyways. So far, we’ve raised over $30,000 for them from the headbands!! That means yall helped me turn a $7,000 negative into an almost $40,000 positive benefiting people who truly need it!”
