Where does the fine money go?

I was just reading the cover story on NFL.com about the "Fine Round-up" for last week. I saw a few that are the "normal" weekly fines, but one caught my eye. There were a few (one on RGIII's horse collar) that rated the 10K fine, and then a few more roughing fines for a little over 7K. The one that stood out was a 10K fine handed out for a player making a "shotgun" gesture. Really? 10K for shooting an air gun? Got me thinking, where does the money that the players pay go?

Re: Where does the fine money go?

Some of these fines are getting unreal. Especially the RG3 one. Said shaken up, yet didn't play him again. My favorite part of the NFL season is more and more booing Roger Goodell from my coach as the fans in NY boo him in person.

Re: Where does the fine money go?

When you think about it, it really goes into their pockets. They take the money, give it to a charity, and then turn around and use that as a tax write off which in turn gives them money back.

edit: ..and by their pockets, I mean the owners. Apparently it's not clear.

No. They just pay the fine. The nfl gives it to charity. The nfl gets a write off I suppose but the player doesn't

Well you said they get the money back so it seemed like you meant the player. But you are saying the nfl donates and than writes it off. I hear ya now. They are getting back a portion of what wasnt theirs in the first place. Still good that the charity gets a piece i guess.
