The NFL suspended Tom Brady without pay for four games after concluding he was a prominent figure regarding two Patriots attendants deflating footballs below league regulations. In addition to the suspension, the Patriots forgeit first-round draft pick in 2016 and a fourth round pick in 2017, as well as a $1 million fine.
We obviously know we won't reach One Million Dollars, however we do believe the fine is bulls**it and want to help anyway we can. So whatever is donated will be donated to the New England Patriots in help with the fine! As we venture with this, we will do frequent updates to show progression of this! If enough is made to make the travel, we will fly down there (on our own expenses) and deliver a check in person!
If the fundraiser does fall short, the Patriots' $2.6 billion value and team owner Robert Kraft's net worth of $4.3 billion (according to Forbes) will probably come in handy. Not to mention Tom Brady has made well over $150 million throughout his career, according to Buzzfeed.
It's astounding what people will consider "charity." The fundraiser creator Michael J. Whitman did, however, start an additional GoFundMe page to help rebuild Nepal -- the donations are significantly less than the football team's fundraiser.
