Odell Beckham Jr fined $18K for Craig Sager cleats

New York Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr. loves to hit the field in custom cleats.

Beckham, who has nearly singlehandedly carried the Giants' offense this season, with 85 receptions, 1,173 yards and 10 touchdowns, has said the cleats will go up for auction and the proceeds will be donated to the Sagerstrong Foundation for cancer research.

Odell Beckham Jr. pulled off another great one-handed catch to lead to his TD and celebrated in his usual fashion.

In an Instagram post by DeSean Jackson, the Redskins receiver complained that he'd been fined.

"It is exciting", Beckham said.

Remember all the good will the National Football League earned when they dedicated an entire week to allow players to wear whatever cleats they wanted in order to raise funds for the charity of their choice? If the league fails to adjust, this problem will only get worse before it gets better.

Beckham continued on Thursday morning by responding to a fan who sent out a tweet about his fine. If that's not a sign the rule is broke, what is?

That's amusing there's no fine for that. I could only imagine if I was the one to do it.

Forget Beckham's personal point.

They also were subject to a big fine by the NFL. $18,000 for wearing Craig Sager cleats that were later auctioned off so that charitable donations could be made in his honor.

Beckham is no stranger to flashy cleats. The players are not going to stop making natural decisions to do good deeds during the season.

"I just have to understand that if I sneeze the wrong way, it'll be a flag", Beckham told reporters after he was penalised for taunting cornerback Xavier Rhodes of the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4.
