I'm not a fan of football, but this just pisses me off

"Good Guy Brandon Marshall, makes a ******** of money, and as a result of having a ******** of money, can throw money at things to look like a good person."

I never consider donating to make someone a good person. Someone poor CAN'T donate, they need their money, meanwhile, someone absurdly wealthy like Romney donating 4 million (all to his church) doesn't really mean anything because they didn't have any use for that money. The positive public image is a better investment than a .00001% increase in net worth.

Completely missing the point. Obviously someone of lower class can't donate and probably doesn't have any time to invest into the community. But these people do, they have the free time and the resources to give back. And I'm not talking about some ******** charity like Church, but real organizations like the red cross and march of dimes.

They take their money and give it to the less fortunate. I barely see how that fails to qualify as a good act.

Well it's certainly not an evil act, but it's the amount of effort. It's as much effort as holding the door open for someone.
When you're rich and have an excessive amount of money, $25k isn't very much, unless you are completely stupid with your money, giving it away won't have any consequence for you.

Yeah, people will benefit from it, I'm not saying stop donating, I'm just saying they don't really deserve to be held up as a saint, all they did was write a number on a site and charge it to their credit card.

Its definitely more than I can do. Ricky Martin for example has dedicated his entire life to stopping child abuse through his foundation and donating copious amounts of money. He has participated in hundreds of child abuse investigations and campaigns all over latin america and the US. If that shouldn't be admired then I don't know what should. Even if you make 2 million a year, donating that 25k is something nobody asked of you and should be viewed as an act of kindness. Regardless of the true intentions since the money's purpose is the same.

Well your example isn't the same, that person is actually doing something, not just donating money.

And it is an act of kindness, sure, but it takes no more effort than holding the door open for someone. Don't treat them like a saint (1000 thumbs).

Its a psychological aspect. If you reward their action with attention, they are likely to repeat. And the more they donate, the more they get praised. Humans love attention, famous or not. If we reward their good deeds with attention, then we encourage them to give more.

I see no problem with putting them on a pedestal if it means the community gets to benefit from it.

Okay, why would the NFL fine someone for their shoe colour?
User avatar #129 to #5 - CHARGERZ (10/11/2013) [-]
But im just guessing. I think the rules are ******** **** making money.
#9 to #5 - tastycupcakes (10/11/2013) [-]
not just what chargerz said, but they also have to be team standardized
User avatar #7 to #5 - CHARGERZ (10/11/2013) [-]
Because they need to wear the shoes which sponsors the NFL. I think its Nike now. Its all about making money.

Not that there's anything wrong with this or Borderline, but I'm just wondering: Here in the lesser neigbourhoods in Amsterdam it's quite common for loads of people to act like total dicks, thrash up a small shop or things like that and insult everyone within a 10 m radius. And afterwards they just say "I can do that, I have borderline". Of course they don't have it but is this common in other places too?
User avatar #106 to #104 - demandsgayversion (10/11/2013) [-]
In America, borderline is an adjective not commonly used in relation to mental health. I can't account for any other countries, but yeah.

The NFL is really starting to annoy me, there are fines and penalties for literally everything now. It makes the game less fun to watch. If it was only like the way it used to be, I might actually watch it more.
