San Francisco 49ers' tight end, George Kittle, found himself facing a $13,659 fine from the league due to an incident of unsportsmanlike conduct during a recent game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Kittle's fine was the result of him revealing a personalized T-shirt beneath his uniform while celebrating Jordan Mason's 26-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of the game, which ended with a decisive score of 42-10 in favor of the 49ers.

This fine had been anticipated by Kittle himself, who had openly acknowledged the possibility earlier in the week, saying, "It is what it is. It's a decision I made. If they want to fine me, they fine me."

Remarkably, the T-shirt in question bore the controversial message "F--- Dallas," a bold move that Kittle revealed was a tribute to former 49ers linebacker Gary Plummer.

Notably, Plummer had worn a similar T-shirt during the 1994 NFC Championship Game against Dallas, which the 49ers went on to win before securing Super Bowl XXIX. George Kittle, despite the financial penalty imposed by the league, expressed no regrets about his actions, asserting, "100%. I'd do it again."

Kittle's actions didn't go unnoticed in Dallas, as they added fuel to the already intense rivalry. Micah Parsons, a player for the Cowboys, commented on Kittle's actions, suggesting that it had made the rivalry more personal.

Parsons stated on The Edge with Micah Parsons podcast, "You going to make it personal? We can make it personal." This incident promises to keep the rivalry between the two teams burning brightly, possibly setting the stage for an even more heated rematch in the playoffs.
