Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King just tweeted that he plans to use GoFundMe to crowdfund the cost of any fine he may be levied for using an illegal tackle this past Sunday against the Falcons.
Aye y’all I’m about to set up a go fund me for my horse collar fine I’m about to get today…

King signed with the Raiders for a 5 year, $16.5 million contract. Y’all do that math.
I’m no expert on the various balls out there (foot, base, soft, whatever) but the move is certainly illegal for a reason. Past fines have cost players around $15000.
