05:07 PM ET 12.12 | We knew it was coming, the question was how much would Chris Kluwe's fine for covering up his Hall of Fame patch with a "Vote of Ray Guy" post-it end up costing him? The final figure for his bizarre protest: $5,250, which is quite a bizarre number in of itself for a fine. We're used to round numbers and although $5,250 is a round number, we're more used to the $20,000 fines teams have been getting. But for Kluwe's protest, he's going to pay a price. And at the end of the day you have to ask yourself if the fine is really worth it. Is an already outspoken punter really going to change hearts and minds by wearing a sloppily made post-it note over his Hall of Fame patch in protest?

It's a charitable contribution as far as the IRS is concerned.

Well here's a "Vote of Ray Guy" But he has to pay the fine himself.

The Komisar takes any resistance to his absolute decrees as a personal afront
