The National Football League (NFL) on Tuesday announced it would not fine New Orleans Saints' Demario Davis for wearing a "Man of God" headband last month. 

David wore the headband in a match against the Seahawks at Century Link Field in Seattle on Sept. 22. He was photographed wearing the headband while he was on the sidelines and was not wearing his helmet. Apart from the headband, David was also seen wearing a necklace with a cross on it.

The board had initially slapped the linebacker with a fine of $7,017 for violating the league’s uniform rules, which do not allow a player to give out personal messages. David, on Tuesday, broke the news on his social media account that his appeal against the fine was successful. 

"So my agent just told me that I won my appeal and won’t have to pay the headband fine!! Then I see that St. Louis King of France came together today to support the movement!” he said alongside a photo of a playground full of children at the local Catholic school wearing home-made versions of the headband.

"Look at all these beautiful children of God. Always glory above so I’m taking every penny of that original $7,017 fine and donating it to [St. Dominic’s Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi] anyways,” Davis wrote on his official Instagram handle

Before winning the appeal, Davis had asked his followers if he should continue to wear the "Man of God: headband despite the NFL's oppose." He received a massive response supporting and encouraging him to continue to wear it during the NFL matches. 

NFL has fined another player for equipment violation this season. A few days ago, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was fined for wearing an Apple Watch on the sidelines during a recent game.  According to the NFL rules, players or any other staff member cannot wear any device during a game that can transmit messages.
