Ezekiel Elliott’s $21 donation on Thanksgiving wound up costing the Cowboys’ star more than $13,000, but he’s ok with it.
Earlier in the game, the running back dropped a $20 and a $1 into the Salvation Army’s bucket. Later when he scored a touchdown against Washington, number 21 dumped teammate Dak Prescott into the giant red kettle as part of the celebration.
League officials weren’t too happy with the end zone stunt, levying a fine, calling his actions “unsportsmanlike conduct.” While Elliott says, “I’ll pay their little fine,” because he’s happy to bring awareness to the charity, he will also appeal the decision.
Do you agree with the league’s decision? Rather than issue a fine, what else could they have done?
