The NFL fined 49ers running back Frank Gore $10,500 for wearing his socks too low in the NFC Championship Game.

The league is notoriously strict when it comes to enforcing its dress code. Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson was fined $5,000 last season for not showing white in his socks during a Monday Night game.

For a league so obsessed with its uniform, it was funny to see Ndamukong Suh and Don Muhlbach wearing a pre-2003 Detroit Lions logo on their Pro Bowl jerseys Sunday night.

That’s two logos ago for those who are curious.

The NFL is solely responsible for the jerseys players wear every time they step on the field. The team does no alterations to the uniform.

It’s unclear if the league plans on fining itself for the gaffe.
