    I was just thinking about this after reading a comment over ESPN -- how much would I pay for the 3 SBs we've gotten and the more to come?

    How much of a statement would this make -- even if the money ultimately went to charity?

    Anyone savvy enough to set this up?

    :) I wouldn't bother. Belichick is paying it out of his petty cash jar.

    He's a millionaire. I assume most of us aren't. He'll be okay.

    I was thinking more about the symbol of support as indicated by perhaps sending it to a charity he supports.

    Sounds good to me. Maybe Jim Brown's Amer-I-Can Foundation? I know he's involved with that.

    Yeah I was thinking of something where you do the PayPal donation thing... I'd throw in $25 or $50 bucks... maybe we could get media on it as a support for Belichick and a big F U to all the media who want to make us believe the public at large despises him.

    Fellers,

    Actually, rather than any amount. folks ought to just mail him a dollar. A single dollar as a token of support for him. Bucks For Bellichick, or BB Bucks, or something like that.

    Good lord, if every fan sent in just one dollar, they'd have millions to donate, and it would certainly be a first-class indicator of the fans feelings towards the situation.

    Respects,

    I think this is a great idea, especially if went towards charity.

    Did the league say which currency this fine has to be paid in?

    I have a bunch of Canuck Loonies that I could send in to the NotSoGoodell :rocker:

    I think this thing could really take off and I would be glad to contribute. Let's make this happen.

    Also, this should be made a sticky to help organize and get it rolling.

    Good idea. It shows that we are a united fan base. Someone set it up.

    How about "Snapshots for Belichick" or "Stolen Signals for Belichick"

    Each "photo" costs $1
