Saints LB Demario Davis Wins Appeal Over $7,000 ‘Man of God’ Headband Fine, Donates Money to Mississippi Hospital Instead

Linebacker Demario Davis took to Instagram Tuesday night to say that he was victorious in his appeal of a $7,017 fine imposed on him by the National Football League for a uniform infraction during a Sept. 22 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Davis’ violation was wearing a gold “Man of God” headband with black letters underneath his helmet. The phrase “Man of God” was visible at points in the game when Davis took off his helmet.

The league’s strict uniform policy stipulates that players can’t display any “personal messages” unless the message is approved in advance by the league office.

“So my agent just told me that I won my appeal and won’t have to pay the headband fine!!” Davis wrote in an Instagram post.

Instead of keeping the money, Davis said he would donate “every penny” of the fine to St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi.

St. Dominic’s emergency department has been the beneficiary of the proceeds from the “Man of God,” “Woman of God” and “Child of God” headbands Davis began selling online in response to his fine.

The headbands can be purchased for $25 and are available in gold and pink.

“So far, we’ve raised over $30,000 for [the hospital] from the headbands!!” Davis wrote in his Instagram post.  “That means yall helped me turn a $7,000 negative into an almost $40,000 positive benefiting people who truly need it!!! Do y’all see how that worked??”

“Let’s gooooo. That’s crazy!” he added. “Ya’ll are a part of this journey too!! I can’t thank ya’ll enough either. We on a mission over here obstacles are meant to be conquered!! I’m truly blessed as anybody.”
