Among the many important issues the NFL monitors each Sunday is whether players are wearing the correct color socks.

Unfortunately for Lions safety Louis Delmas, he wasn’t.

The NFL has confirmed that Delmas was fined $5,250 for a uniform violation. Delmas was wearing black and blue socks, while the NFL requires Lions players to wear either white and blue or solid blue.

Delmas said the money was taken out of his paycheck and that in the NFL, if you’re fined for a sock violation you find out, “when you get the damn check.”

Delmas said no one told him there was anything wrong with his sock choice before or during the game. He knows now.
