Fan funding fines

In Catalyzing Fans, Mike, Dan MarkelZ"L, and I discussed fans using FACs and crowdfunding to pay unjust fines imposed on their team or players. Penn State fans are doing just that, collecting money to pay a $10,000 fine imposed on Men's Basketball Coach Pat Chambers for criticizing the officiating in a recent loss. In the paper, we point to the potential moral hazard of players or coaches ignoring the rules, knowing someone else would handle any punishment or sanction.
