Earlier today it was reported that the NFL was considering dropping a $100,000 dollar fine on Detroit Lions lineman Ndamukong Suh and they apparently aren’t considering it any longer, because they did it.
Tiring of Suh’s continued dirty play and backhanded antics on the field, the NFL dropped the fine this afternoon, though, they will not suspend him for his dirty block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan.
Per Dave Birkett:
Suh has been fined $100k by the NFL
Suh, who was voted as the most dirty player in the league by his fellow players has earned his reputation with almost annual cheap shots, this weekend being no different.
As one of the premier talents in the league, the NFL would prefer to market Suh in a positive light, not the continually negative one he shines on himself.
The league has been coming down hard on repeat offenders in recent months and they’re probably hoping the $100,000 dollar fine will finally cause Suh to realize his actions and decision making isn’t up to par with what it should be.
