Ndamukong Suh has lost his appeal of the $100,000 fine given to him by the NFL for his actions during week 1.
During the first game of the season, against the Minnesota Vikings, Suh illegally hit center John Sullivan. According to an article on ESPN,
Suh’s agent, Roosevelt Barnes, tells The Associated Press he was notified Friday of the arbitrator’s decision.
The six-figure fine was the largest in league history for on-field conduct, not including money lost by players due to suspensions.
If Suh is to play dirty and have another illegal hit, what’s next? A bigger fine? A longer suspension?
Suh has been fined six times and suspended for two games for a total of $342,794.
Suh isn’t deemed the dirtiest player in the league for no good reason, he rightly deserves that title. He’s had countless cheap shots and dirty hits on players, and he’s been give severe penalties for them. But what’s going to happen when Suh has another cheap or illegal hit on a player?
There’s got to be a boiling point the league has for things like this, although Suh may be the closest to it, which means nobody might know where that point is. Enough is enough, don’t you think Ndamukong?
