NFL Charities provides more than $8 million in grants each year to a variety of national non-profit organizations. I am not sure about other sports.

Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

Follow the money While the NBA will not disclose the charities to which it donates player fines, the NFL, NHL and MLB each publicize the organizations that benefits from its players' fines: National Football LeagueNational Hockey League




Player fines totaled some $1.1 million during the 2000 season, according to Arthur McAfee, staff counsel for the NFL Player's Association. The money was split equally among four organizations, the league's charities of choice for many years: the Lombardi Cancer Research Center, Brian Piccolo Cancer Fund, ALS Neuromuscular Research Foundation and the Player's Association Assistance Trust Fund.



Approximately $1.25 million has been collected this season, mostly from players salaries lost during league-levied suspensions. All money collected is donated to the NHL Players' Emergency Assistance Fund, which helps financially-strapped former players, league spokesman Frank Brown said.

Major League Baseball
Baseball funnels fine money either to a central fund, which is shared among the league's 30 teams, or in some cases it goes to the charity of the player's choice, according to Rich Levin, the league's spokesman. Baseball player fines and suspensions are considered minimal when compared to the other leagues.

I don't wish to be argumentative ,but I disagree with the Islamic belief that I should be killed! " If radical atheists decided they needed to kill believers to ensure their place in nothingness, I'd be criticizing that too."

Which mlb managers faced each other the most in their lifetimes

My guess would be Connie Mack for one; he managed the most games of any manager, and there were only 8 teams in the American League, so 22 games per season against each opponent. Joe McCarthy might be the one who faced him most; he managed 19 AL seasons for the Yankees and Red Sox.
