Between the Cleveland Browns’ 2-4 record, inconsistent play from quarterback Baker Mayfield and getting choke-slammed that one time, it’s been a frustrating year for Odell Beckham Jr.

The star wide receiver publicly complained again about fines from the NFL on Monday, posting a letter he received from the NFL last Wednesday that told him he had been fined $14,037 because his pants “failed to cover the knee area.” The NFL has now apparently taken the role of a catholic school nun.

This is just the latest time Beckham has complained about fines from the NFL this season, most recently going after the league for how it handled the choke-slam incident with Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey.

Beckham got another fine after Week 1 for wearing a $191,500 watch during a game and having a visor that was marginally too dark. He has also been fined in the past for things like a lewd touchdown celebration and blindside hit.

Of course, you have to wonder how many players that aren’t Beckham have worn their pants above their knees and not been fined. That might just be the price Beckham pays by simply occupying the public space he holds in the NFL.
