According to a news report by TV station KDKA, the National Football League has instructed Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that he can’t have the letters P-F-J — meaning play for Jesus — on his shoes.
The station adds, “The NFL told Roethlisberger to remove the initials and the number 40 — in honor of the late Arizona Cardinals safety Pat Hillman, who was killed in Afghanistan — or else he’d face a $5,000.”
Perhaps Roethlisberger could post such personal messages on an arm or some other visible part of his person. If he does, it would be nearly impossible for the NFL to restrict such free speech.
