NFL player wins appeal over ‘Man of God’ headband, plans to donate money to hospital

Even though he wore the headband for the first several weeks of the season, he decided he wouldn’t wear it after receiving the $7,017 fine from the NFL.

Instead, he began selling “Man of God,” “Woman of God,” and “Child of God” headbands to supportive fans with 100 percent of the proceeds going to St. Dominic Hospital, a hospital near his hometown in need of a new emergency department.

According to The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, Demario appealed the NFL’s fine because he was unaware a headband was considered a uniform violation and he didn’t believe it was offensive.
