FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN UNDERWAY …

|| By FITSNEWS || New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is worth an estimated $4.3 billion.  In other words, he doesn’t need any help paying the $1 million fine the National Football League (NFL) has imposed on his organization in the aftermath of its latest cheating scandal.

Hell, nearly thirty of his fifty-three players make $1 million or more a year … and the franchise generated $428 million in revenue last year.

But despite their abundance, Kraft and the Patriots are getting some financial help in the form of a GoFundMe page that aims to raise the money for the team to pay off its fine.  In its first seventeen hours online, the fund has actually raised $1,430 from fifty-six different donors.

Ah, fools and their money …

“We obviously know we won’t reach ($1 million), however we do believe the fine is bullsh*t and want to help anyway we can,” the page’s description states.  “So whatever is donated will be donated to the New England Patriots (to) help with the fine.”

Sheesh …
