    Seriously? Was it really necessary for THE NFL to fine Ezekial Eliot $13,000 for giving The Salvation Army a donation of $21 Dollars? That's a little extreme, especially since The Salvation Army shelters victims of domestic abuse, while The NFL gives the perpetrators of Domestic Abuse Million Dollar Contracts.

    Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott blasts NFL after fine for post-TD donation to Salvation Army

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott fired back at the NFL after being fined more than $13,000 for dropping a $21 donation into a Salvation Army kettle after scoring a touchdown during the team’s Thanksgiving Day victory over the Washington Redskins

    That's capitalism at work for you. Those who own the NFL get to call the shots. Are you a communist?

    The NFL has a long history of fining its players for a myriad of stupid reasons.

    Maybe the new American Patriot League will take some of the NFL's fan base. I think it will.
