Patriots Fans Start $1 Million GoFundMe Account For Team’s Deflategate Scandal!
For those of you who aren’t caught up on that tea, locker room attendants John Jastremski and James McNally deflated the footballs used by Patriots’ quarterback, Tom Brady. Text messages confirmed this as McNally referred to himself as “the deflator”. The attendants have since been suspended indefinitely and without pay from the NFL, but the reason why fans are irate is because Tom was found to be guilty as well. NFL Executive VP, Troy Vincent, said,
“The integrity of the game is of paramount importance to everyone in our league, and requires unshakable commitment to fairness and compliance with the playing rules. Each player, no matter how accomplished and otherwise respected, has an obligation to comply with the rules and must be held accountable for his actions when those rules are violated and the public’s confidence in the game is called into question.”
We obviously know we won’t reach One Million Dollars, however we do believe the fine is bulls**t and want to help anyway we can. So whatever is donated will be donated to the New England Patriots in help with the fine!
As we venture with this, we will do frequent updates to show progression of this! If enough is made to make the travel, we will fly down there (on our own expenses) and deliver a check in person!
