"I got fined early in the year, and this was a way to make that into a positive one by taking the fine money and doing something good with it," Robinson said. "It's going to change some lives. Putting $25,000 in here is going to open up a lot of opportunities for these kids, so it's a blessing." - Dunta Robinson
Yup, he did get fined. Remember why? Needless to say, Dunta, according to the article/interview, talked owner Bob McNair, GM Richard Smith, and coach Gary Kubiak into turning the fine into a donation to the Texans YMCA.
You can also look at this as Dunta giving money back that he didn't earn. I'll gladly rip the guy on Sundays for blowing coverage and whiffing on tackles, but I'll applaud him for turning his boneheaded move into one that positively contributes to a good cause. So for the first time in 2009, I applaud you, Dunta.
If you haven't had your fill of Dunta then here's a video interview.
PS: I hate FanShots, so I had to write something more about it. I also felt like good news, especially concerning Dunta, doesn't get reported nearly enough.
EDIT: According to the Chronicle, Dunta also gave two families gifts of $5,000 each to end a very charitable day. On a football note (something that I don't think anyone realizes), the article also notes that only one WR has gotten a 100 yard game on the Texans: Chad Ochocinco. It also notes that Dunta's first choice for a 2010 team is: The Houston Texans.
