So do they take back the $20k from the charity (I read somewhere all fines are distributed to charities)?

Or just take it out of the NFL coffers?

If he appealed the fine then he hasn't paid it yet.

Ahh gotcha, I just assumed they had to pay the fine before their next game or they don't play.

From what I heard, it's taken out of their paycheck automatically (if they don't appeal of course).

This is pretty meaningless......since it doesn't undo the damage done....which was loss of the interception and probably having a W instead of a L.
Basically symbolic at best....maybe the NFL feels better but oh well.  Undecided

At some point you just have to let go of what you thought should happen and live in what is happening.
