Saints linebacker Demario Davis wins appeal over 'Man of God' headband
NEW ORLEANS - Saints defensive star Demario Davis says he's won his fight against an NFL fine over his "Man of God" headband.
Davis announced on social media that he got word from his agent that he'd won his appeal.
The league fined Davis after week 3 for the headband, which league officials decided constituted a uniform violation. The announcement of the $7,017 fine angered fans, prompting an outpouring of support for Davis, who swore to keep wearing the headband despite the fine.
Davis says he plans to take the money that would have gone toward the fine and donate it to St. Dominic Hospital in his home state of Mississippi.
Via Twitter he made an announcement:
We’ve raised $30,000 from headbands AND I won my appeal! Always glory above so I’m donating that original $7,017 to
still. Y'all helped me turn a $7,000 negative into a $40,000 positive & got this school to support! Let’s go! #ManOfGod
