And even if your fall starts like that, with your legs "whipped" apart, as quickly as possible you tuck your leg back in and get it to the ground in order to break your fall, stop your uncontrolled momentum, and get back up to get back in the play, if possible and necessary.

So even if his leg just remained in the open, extended and untucked posture, that alone would suggest that he was "pointing" toward the Schaub. Then, to see ANY cocking (no pun intended) and thrusting (again, no pun intended), and extending of his leg at the knee and ankle, whereby the bottom of his foot made contact with Mrs. Schaub's jewels, it cannot be explained. At the very least, I can't see how anyone can say the Suh was physically unable to avoid the sack (here, pun intended) if he wanted to, and if he could have avoided but chose not to, then it's INTENTIONAL. Whether he was literally trying to "package" Schaub or just generally hurt him, it was intentional.

He needs at least a 2-game suspension and appropriate fine, considering this is the 2nd time he has used his legs to cheat and injure another player. On Thanksgiving of all days!!!
Disagree on the top part. Watch the link I sent where it is shown over and over. The roll over the lineman was natural. His top leg didn't even have a chance to hit the ground in a rolling motion because it was on Schaub. So there was nothing he could do to tuck it to the ground. It was one continuous roll. What wasn't natural was keeping it high and the jab. But I have no problem with the original roll like he was controlling that.
