Athletes get fined almost every single day for doing something or other. From showing up late to team meetings to criticizing officials, there's nothing new about athletes receiving fines. But every now and then, an athlete receives a fine for doing something that is totally worth the fine. For instance, the NFL docked Marshawn Lynch $50,000 recently for not speaking with the media all season long. And we bet he was more than happy to pay that much money in order to be left alone.

Check out some of the other incidents that Bleacher Report was able to track down over here. They were worth every penny of the fines that they resulted in.
