    It would be interesting to know, but as a private organization I don't see why the NFL should have to make that information public. Why do they owe you or anyone else an explanation for what they do?

    I believe they have said it goes to help retired players with medical expenses and stuff like that.

    I guess with all of the brain injuries they need more money so they are fining legal hits too

    Suh could have blasted him and piled on. He just shoved him down. What a crock.

    Re: What an absolute joke....

    I'm a big supporter of protecting the quarterback and other efforts to reduce injuries, but there was absolutely nothing illegal with that hit, let alone anything worth a fine.

    I thought I heard it was donated to charities or something like that. I could be wrong. Or the "charity" could be helping retired players with medical expenses!

    Re: What an absolute joke....

    My personal opinion is the NFL is treading on dangerous ground here. If they keep this stuff up they will slowly make themselves irrelevant. Nobody wants to watch overpaid 300lb dudes play patty-cake.

    I believe they go to charity, either in the city of the offending player or to a charity of the player's choice. One of the two.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Does that mean they can file it as tax-exempt?
