    Fine Money

    Im really suprised this isnt brought up more. I know the fine money is supposedly going to charities. But shouldnt by now, with all these fines in the nfl, there should be some charities out there thinking they have plenty of money already lol. Really would like to find out were all this money ends up. Any ideas?

    Defensive players are going to need bigger contracts just cause of all the money they're losing due to fines.

    I have a brilliant idea.

    It goes into a fund that the fans enter to win at the end of the year.

    Boom.

    If you really care:

    ...the net contribution to charity from on-field fines was $2.9 million. On average, that means the typical NFL game results in about $10,000 in fines.

    When a player is fined for on-field misconduct, that money goes to charities and programs for retired players. Money is distributed by NFL Charities to the NFL Player Care Foundation and the NFLPA’s Players Assistance Trust, as well as the Brian Piccolo Memorial Fund and the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Care Center.

    On average, fine money has been about $3 million a year for the last four years....

    I had a guest speaker come into one of my classes last year. He worked for the Cavs during the early 2000's and the early LeBron years. He went to ownership and mentioned that he wanted to get a master's degree. They responded, and these are his words verbatim, "no problem, we'll just use Ricky Davis' fine money to pay for it." Apparently that's how he got his masters. I don't know if that's how it's typically done, but that's what he told us.

    Ha, that would be awesome if true. Think of all the kids Suh could put through college.
