New York - The New York Jets are appealing a $100,000 fine levied by the National Football League for the tripping incident involving coach Sal Alosi against the Miami Dolphins on December 12.

The New York Post reported on Wednesday that Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff told the media that it is "an unresolved issue," while team spokesman Bruce Speight confirmed the appeal but said any discussions between the team and the league would remain confidential.

It was discovered by the team that Alosi told players to stand in a wall along the sidelines, especially during punts, forcing the "gunner" to go around them.

On one of those plays, Alosi stuck out his knee and tripped Miami cornerback Nolan Carroll. The club has not yet ruled out the possibility of firing Alosi for his actions.

Alosi had previously been fined $25,000 by the Jets and was suspended indefinitely.
