Back when Joe Horn did his bit with the cell phone someone once told me "it went to charity" when he got fined, but I dunno WTF that really means. When you are talking about the NFL, who knows where it goes.

The NFL itself is set up as a tax-exempt nonprofit. The fine money probably goes to Play 360 and bus commercials and stuff like that, the new turf they put in on the high school field out by City Park, which the NFL then uses the players' money and then takes the credit for it. The over-the-top pink breast cancer awareness thing, which dominates the NFL for a month, with no mention of cancers like prostate or testicular or that kill zillions of men who are actually NFL fans watching the games. Did you know, the proceeds from all the pink merchandise they sell during October -- you know the pink ladies' jerseys and stuff -- did you know that only a tiny percentage of that money actually goes to the American Cancer Society. 5%. That's tiny. The bulk of that money is pocketed by the billionaire owners, just like any other jersey sale.

I hope to goodness that is not true. 5% is pathetic.
Can you source that info?
