This may result in him receiving a $100M fine from the NFL for failure to make himself available to the media.
$100M?
Oh sorry, I'm at work. We use "M" as an abbreviation for 1000 ("MM" is an abbreviation for million, as in thousand-thousand). As an engineer, this finance abbreviation bugs the shit out of me, but eight years later I guess I've gotten used to it.

It should read $100,000.

$50000 last time, but the NFL ended up reversing the fine.
What I read was that the appeal was granted under condition that he didn't do it again, with the threat of an additional $50k fine and reinstatement of the original fine. $100k.


EDIT: Thanks google for helping explain "M" vs "k" and "MM" vs "m"! http://www.accountingcoach.com/blog/...d-mm-stand-for
