I bet if that was Vick , an Mora got fined yall wouldnt donate. Vick got hit several times when he was clearly out of bounds an if Mora wouldve done what smith done. You all wouldntve ever donated. T

lol. big talk. yall ain't paying nothing.

Children are dieing in Africa every second and we're collecting money for a millionaire.

He's not going to get fined 100k.

We're well aware we're not going to collect enough money for this completely.

It's going to goto charity.

ROID-RAGE!

I know the Patriots coach got fined like 250 thou. I know what he did was much much worse but if they decide to fine Smitty (which we don't know yet right?) it's likely gonna be too much for a bunch of $23 donations to make a dent. Giving it to charity is a good alternative plan.

The roid thing stopped being funny like a month after I signed up. Never done em.

It's a symbolic act. What's important isn't the money raised, but the statement of support for Coach Smith it represents.

OK, my guess is that Coach Smith is going to get fined. Personally, I'm glad he reacted to D-Hall coming to our sideline and starting trouble. I do not condone a coach every putting his hands on a player in a threatening way (I still laugh out loud every time I say that), but I thought his reaction was appropriate.

I know that Smith makes big bucks, and the organization would probably flip the bill anyway, but how cool would it be if the fans of this city took up a collection to pay Smith's fine? I for one would donate my lunch money for the day to show this organization that the fans will come to Smith's side just like he came to his players side.

If Smith does receive a fine, I say we "pass the hat" and chip in (probably via Pay Pal). Even if we only conver a fraction of the cost, I'd love to show our team that we truly stand behind them.

Anyone else with me? A $5 gesture is something everyone can afford!

I'll put in a sawbuk sure.

UPDATE

I just got an email from D. Orlando Ledbetter. He is going to mention this movement in his blog!!!

All we need is a fine from Goodell and we are golden! laugh.gif

Hey, why don't we go ahead and take the collection. Even if they don't fine Smitty someone from the board could present the coach with a check and ask him to donate it to his favorite charity. It would be a symbolic way for the fans to show our appreciation and to let him know the fans have his back.

OK, I'm serious. If Smith gets fined, we will set up a PayPal account for donations. I'll call the FAlcons today to let Coach Smith know that we have his back! :)

The cause will get more publicity if everyone makes checks out the coach, putting Hall Fine Fundraiser on the for line and mailing them to the local TV news stations. Put a note on there explaining the cause and ask them to forward it to Falcons front office. You could just send them to the front office yourself, but then they might just shred them.
