Cost to give NFL football to a fan

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how much an NFL player has to pay to give a football to a fan during a game?

I tried looking this up on the internet and did a search for previous posts on the huddle, but I was unable to find a definitive answer. I have heard a range from $500-3000 dollars. Sorry if this has been discussed before.

Btw - just broke my posting cherry :)

what?

It was my understanding that it costs the player money out of their pocket when the player gives a fan a football (like after a touchdown). I guess now I am wondering if that is true, and if it is - then how much?

I think the fine is if you throw the ball into the crowd. It's OK to hand it to someone.

I think a Christmas game the NFL takes the stick out of their ass and gives away balls to the kids scores or not.

Normally it's five grand I think. Word is the panthers have ben paying the bills this season and encouraging the players to do it.

I remember it being a $1500 fine that was almost never enforced unless the player did something stupid like drill it straight at someone in the front row.

Huhhh. Never thought of that before. $1500 for a fugging football???? With the reduced rookie contracts and all the football's given away, Cam Newton is going to be broke. He'll be painting houses in the Charlotte area for a summer job.

hmmmm. pretty sure they get fined if they throw it in to the crowd. other than that, i don't think the players have to pay anything. a football doesn't cost very much money.
