Detroit Lions cornerback Louis Delmas got fined by the NFL this week, but it wasnt for an illegal block to the knees or helmet-to-helmet blow. No, this was for wearing the wrong colored socks. Delmas broke the uniform code established for the Lions when he wore black socks in Sundays game at Arizona. The Lions are supposed to wear blue or white socks. It cost him 5,250. It is what it is, Delmas told the Detroit News. Lions defensive end Israel Idonije also got hit for 15,750 for a low hit on Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer, a week after defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was docked a whopping 100,000 for a controversial play in the opening game.
