When the NFL levied a $100,000 fine against Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for his an illegal block against Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan several weeks ago, Suh appealed.

Apparently, the appeal was not successful, so Suh will be paying one of the largest fines ever issued by the league.

The fine took into account Suh’s status as a repeat offender. He has been fined numerous times before and has a reputation as a dirty player.

In an interesting twist, Matt Birk, who played center for the Vikings from 1998 to 2008, is an appeals officer who was involved in making the decision to deny Suh’s appeal.
