Dumb Patriots Fans Raise Money to Pay Fine For Team Worth More Than a BILLION Dollars
This kinda stupidity should really unite the far left and the far right. While liberals freaked out over Christians giving money to support a pizzeria targeted by the gay mafia, I’m pretty sure we can all agree that a BILLION dollar team owned by a multi-billionaire really doesn’t need help paying a paltry million dollar fine.
But for these very “special” New England Patriots’ fans, this is how they want to spend their money:
Now, I know not all Patriots fans are this stupid, so this isn’t really a dig at them. It’s a dig at the idiots who would give their money to “help” the Patriots pay their fine. Let’s do the math real quick, oh wait, let’s make Twitter do the math for us:
Robert Kraft's net worth is $4.3 billion. The Patriots were fined $1 million, or .0002% of Kraft's worth. Still think this needs a GoFundMe?

So, let’s say you’re a regular person and your net worth is $100,000. The same ratio of a fine would be $23 to you. I mean, really guys? Really?
Things like the GoFundMe for the Patriots are why I can't stand people. A billion dollar company does something WRONG and you're too wrapped

A fund has been started to help the Patriots pay their $1M fine, whose owner is worth 4.3 BILLION. What is wrong with people?

Patriots fans start Kickstarter for $2.6 billion team's $1 million fine. No word on how many short buses it takes to get them to games.

Bob Kraft bought the Patriots for $175M. They're now valued at $1.5 billion. So you tell me if a $1 million fine actually makes an impact.

Far be it from me to tell anyone how to spend their money. But don’t be complete idiots about it, guys!
At the time of this post being published, the idiot fans had raised over $14,000 for a multi-billionaire in support of their billion-dollar team.
