I know the reasoning behind the fine and I agree with it 100%.
But what I don't understand is why would it matter if the CHL team or the family pay the $50 grand.
If a team paid the the fine and the USTDP sues the player because he didn't pay it himself the courts would laugh them out of the courtroom!
