This may result in him receiving a $100M fine from the NFL for failure to make himself available to the media.
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"!
