Group of idiots on internet donate money to much richer person

Listen, we get it, people like football. And the liking of football is good for business, and pays a lot of mortgages.

But some of you people really need to take a peek in a mirror.

Some fan, aggrieved by the league’s fining the Patriots $1 million for their “more probable than not” role in deflating footballs, has decided to pass the hat.

A site has been set up, soliciting donations to help offset the league-imposed fine.

“We obviously know we won’t reach One Million Dollars, however we do believe the fine is bulls**t and want to help anyway we can,” the site reads. “So whatever is donated will be donated to the New England Patriots in help with the fine!”

Yeah, poor Robert Kraft, worth $4.3 billion (with a B) can use all the help he can get.

At the moment, 365 fans/suckers/trolls have made donations worth $5,430, ranging from $500 to $5. And to be honest, as a capitalist, part of me says “fine, have at it, whizz away your own money however you please.”

At the same time, there has to be a homeless dog somewhere in the cities where these people live, or something more worthy than making a quixotic — and very, very stupid — statement on behalf of a billionaire who believes he’s been wronged.
