Colin Cowherd: “Odell, no one is picking on you. This is self-inflicted. The NFL once fined Brian Urlacher, at the time one of the best defensive players in the league, $100,000 for wearing a hat at a Media Day. That’s getting ‘picked on’. Colin Kaepernick was fined for wearing headphones before a game that the NFL didn’t approve. THOSE are intense and punitive fines. Brandon Marshall got fined for the wrong cleats, Cam Newton got fined for a clip in his face mask; there have been sock fines... They’re not going to allow something small because obviously it would set a precedent. OBJ wears a watch, and then someone else wears another watch. This is what big companies do, it’s called UNIFORMITY.” (Full Video at Bottom of Page)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks Odell Beckham Jr. needs to stop playing the victim card, as the Cleveland Browns wide receiver has become the biggest storyline on his own team for reasons that have nothing to do with his play on the field.
Wearing ‘hard jewelry’ in plain view is against NFL rules but Beckham is reportedly planning on wearing another Richard Mille model in Week 2. Beckham to this point is not even sponsored by the luxury watch brand.
Beckham has made grumblings on his social media page that the league is picking on him, and that if this was any other player it wouldn’t be a big deal.
Check out the video below as Colin details why OBJ isn’t some special case of petty discipline, as the NFL has strived for strict uniformity for years, even with the most innocuous violations.
