We mentioned on Sunday that the NFL has fined Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch $50,000 for violating the NFL’s media policy.
According to Terry Blount of ESPN.com, Seahawks fans have started raising money to help Lynch pay his fine.
As of 2 p.m. PT on Monday, over $2,000 had been raised at a gofundme.com page, titled “12th Man for Marshawn Lynch.”
Seahawks fans have bombarded Twitter with angry comments directed toward the NFL for fining Lynch, who spoke to reporters last week for the first time this season after the fine was imposed.
This is a nice gesture, but I believe it’s against the CBA for Lynch to take the money.
People raising $ to cover Lynch's fine need to understand he can't accept it. it would be a CBA violation.
