Lions likely to be fined $50,000 at end of season

The suspension of Ndamukong Suh won't just affect Suh. It could hurt the entire Detroit Lions team. Here's why.

League rules stipulate that when a player is suspended or fined, the amount of the fine, up to a maximum of $50,000 per infraction, counts towards a club's season total.

If a team reaches $100,000 in fines the club must forfeit $50,000. If a team reaches $150,000, then it must forfeit an additional $25,000, and match any subsequent fine/suspension amounts for remainder of season.

So, bottom line, the Suh suspension put the Lions over that $100,000 season total. Lions players have already been fined at least that much this season so not only is that $100,000 mark already likely been reached, the next mark could be as well. The team fine would happen at the end of the season once all appeals and reductions are accounted for.

The way things are going for Suh and the Lions, Suh won't be the only one fined. The entire organization might be as well.

Betcha we will see Suh getting in toruble again before the season is over. He is going to be more mad with the 2 games suspension. In his eyes, he did no wrong therefore it's everybody's elses fault but his. Maybe he should have been a boxer instead. He can use all his rage in the ring and gets paid millions for hurting his opponents instead of getting fines for doing the same thing on the football field.

Since Suh won't consider himself a dirty player until his mom says so, maybe she should be fined $50,000 also just to bring it closer to home...The Lions will just raise the price of a hot dog or beer to compensate, so as usual the fans will feel it too. This will do nothing towards stopping Suh and will only sell more jerseys to wanna-be thugs nationwide.
