Report: Marshon Lattimore fined $13,369 for donating $23

I 100% agree with Elliott!

New Orleans Saints defensive back Marshon Lattimore was fined $13,369 by the NFL after he dropped $23 into an oversized Salvation Army kettle during his game against the Dallas Cowboys, per Nick Underhill of the Advocate. Lattimore’s stunt was a reference to a previous donation of $21 by Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott into the big jar in the end zone of AT&T Stadium, referencing their jersey numbers.



Elliott was also fined $13,369 by the NFL when he performed the celebration, though he has since appealed. The young Cowboys star later matched his touchdown celebration with another $21,000 to the Salvation Army, which reported a spike of other donations up to $180,000 the following day.

Lattimore hasn’t spoken yet on his own fine, but Elliott probably summed up his feelings in a conversation with reporters after receiving his letter from the league:

“I mean I didn’t really expect a fine, really don’t care about the fine. It’s all for a good cause and we’re trying to bring awareness to the Salvation Army and if the NFL doesn’t like that, then, I mean, that’s on them. I’ll pay their little fine.”

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Then why were the buckets near the endzone in the first place?? You know if fans started throwing money in it the refs would throw a flag on their team for throwing objects on the field.

This is an entirely new low for the shield. Fining players for donating to a cause that helps people in times of need. The people responsible for handing out these fines should be going to hell.

Totally agree! Just when I think the NFL brass can't get any stupider, they show me there is plenty of room left! Unreal!!

This would actually be a funny EZ skit. Fake ringing a bell, some make a circle with their hands and someone drop money in it.

Free commercial for The Salvation Army. Consistently dumb by the NFL.
