$145.83 for me. Hell, I'd pay triple that to get three good punches in on Innegan. I'm not saying that I could whip him - let's be real, he's still an NFL player - but I'd be glad to do it for a charitable cause.

Default Re: Crunch the fine

About the cost of a good speeding ticket. Something I would NOT want to pay for.

It looks like that's actually based on your pre-tax income. While the fine I'm sure is tax deductible (in his case) it's still cash he's unable to use. It says he makes $6MM this year... that's like $2MM of income taxes so the fine is going to have a 'bigger impact'.

Let's put it this way. Our fine doesn't seem like that much but it's about equivalent to what you would earn for a day's of work. Mine is actually more, like a day and half of work.

How pissed would you be if your boss said, "sorry bud but what you did was bad. You have to work the next two days but your not getting paid for it." That puts it into a little more perspective.

If he said that because I made finnegan look like a fool... it would well be worth it. I'd tell him I'd work the whole week for free!
