MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — A Packers’ fan has started a GoFundMe page to help pay for the fines that Packers’ players may accumulate during the season after Clay Matthews was flagged again for roughing the passer in Sunday’s loss to the Washington Redskins.
Adam Waraxa started the page after the Green Bay linebacker sacked Redskins’ quarterback Alex Smith Sunday and was flagged. The play had been mocked online due to the lack of “roughing” on the passer, Smith.

Waraxa calls out the NFL for the bad calls against the Packers’ star this season and wants people to donate to cover the costs of fines that Matthews or any other player may receive this season.
While Matthews was flagged last week as well for a hit on Kirk Cousins, he was not fined and has not been fined for his hit Sunday.
The goal for the page is $30,000 and as of Monday morning, the page has raised $245 given by nine people.
