After the Memphis Grizzlies’ game two loss to San Antonio, coach David Fizdale went off on a rant against the officiating, listing off foul discrepancy numbers and ending with “take that for data.”

Subsequently (and unsurprisingly), Fizdale was fined $30,000 by the NBA for his comments.

However, it looks like everyone and their mother was so inspired by Fizdale’s rant that they would like to pay his fine instead.

According to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial-Appeal, the players offered to pay his fine.

It’s not just the players. Grizzlies sponsor ServiceMaster offered to pay his fine, too.

Someone please pay me to say critical things about referees. I am open to a price far less than $30,000.
