    How much money does Andre Johnson make again? How much do I make...? Oh, right.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Andre Johnson fan, but I think he can easily afford the fine. :D

    Okay, apparently you missed the part that said the money would go to charity.

    “If some money is raised and they wanna give it to me, I will buy more presents for kids for Christmas,” Johnson said.

    Now if it was VY, he would have said:
    "If some money is raised and they wanna give it to me, I will be able to make it rain at my next sausage party"

    Having AJ at a loss for words is nothing new, but the plan is on par for the man. Class act all the way. Donated.

    All this does is encourage people to fight at work. Reward a wrongdoer, perpetuate the crime.

    Pretty awesome thing. If those $'s are correct, it looks like almost $1K has already been raised.

    For any of you Tax Guys out there: If this is "given" to AJ is it not taxable? Or what's the limit on "gifts" - $10K?

    That would suck to raise all this and give to him and then 40% is taken by the gov't... lol

    I trust Andre Johnson more than I trust the March of Dimes/Red Cross/etc in getting these kid's their full dollar's worth.

    Done.

    Ride or die baby! Texan and Andre Johnson fan for life!

    AJ is a real class act. Not only would he not let the fans pay for his mistake, but he is gonna take any money they give him and buy more gifts for kids.

    We are lucky to have this guy on our team. I hope we recognize how fortunate we are to have this kind of person becuase they do not come around often.
