Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been wearing Under Armor visor clips for a while now, but no one, especially the NFL, seemed to notice.
After Chris Smith of Forbes.com pointed it out, the league has decided to fine Newton $10,000 for wearing the clips last Sunday. He apparently won't face any retroactive discipline for wearing them on weeks 1-2.
Per Mike Florio of PFT: ' The league office has informed PFT that the clips are permissible as long as the logos are concealed. The Panthers believed that blacking out the white lettering would be sufficient, but in close-up shots the logo could still be seen. Others have been wearing the clips without the logo concealed. We’re seeking clarification on whether other players, and possibly any teams, has been fined. '
Since the initial report, the NFL has said that no other Panthers received fines for the clips.

Sponsorship deals are so wrong. And in theory, being featured in Forbes magazine should be "so right" for Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton.
And maybe it was, but the interview Newton did, along with the accompanying photos, ended up costing him $10,000.
