What happens to all that NFL fine money?

George Moore wants to know…

Where does all this fine money go? What does the NFL league do with it! Why is it never mentioned or an accounting given for it!

We went to WECT Sports Director Bob Bonner for the answer.  Bob says…

Player fine money is used to support retired player programs, as well as other charitable causes as agreed upon between the NFL and NFL Players Association.  From what I know, when a player is fined he is actually told what charity the money will be going to.

Fines to coaches act in the same way, and all funds come directly out of their check.
