Among those fined by the NFL Friday for their roles in the Thursday Night Football brawl between the Steelers and Browns was that of Maurkice Pouncey, who repeatedly punched and kicked Clevelands’ Miles Garrett after Garrett swung a helmet at Mason Rudolph.

Pouncey stood by his actions post game, inferring he’d do it all over again to someone trying to harm his quarterback.
As a showing of solidarity, Steelers fans have come together and started a GoFundMe page in order to pay the $50,000 fine Pouncey received from the NFL.
Though Steelers faithful can’t reverse his three-game suspension, Pittsburgh fans are putting their money together to help cover the fine Maurkice Pouncey received for his role in Thursday night’s brawl against the Cleveland Browns.
The GoFundMe page can be seen HERE.
“He hit Rudolph with his helmet after he ripped it off his head. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey jumped into the action to defend his QB and surely will be fined an unreasonable amount. So SteelerNation let’s raise as much as we can to help Pouncey for doing the absolute right thing.”
As of Friday afternoon, the GoFundMe has raised over $1,300.
The GoFundMe organizer has made it known that if Pouncey decides not to accept the money, it will be donated to a charity of his choosing.
