Default Lions' Suh suspended two games for Thanksgiving stomp

DETROIT (AP) -- Ndamukong Suh's stomp will cost him two games.
The NFL suspended Detroit's All-Pro defensive tackle on Tuesday for roughing up a Green Bay Packers player in front of a national television audience during a loss on Thanksgiving Day. Suh will miss Sunday night's game at New Orleans and a Dec. 11 home game against Minnesota and he won't be paid until he is reinstated Dec. 12...

I really like Suh as a player, but what he did was just pathetic. Great DT, but obviously still has a lot to learn.

Default Re: Lions' Suh suspended two games for Thanksgiving stomp

This thing has been overblown. The O-Line man took him down after the play was over and Suh lost his cool. He should have been ejected, fined for fighting and then everyone could go on with their lives. It isn't like he ripped the guy's helmet off and stomped on his face. He punked a little ***** who shoved him down after the play and then went a little overboard by kicking the prick when he got up.

He's not dirty, just immature.

Yeah, he's not dirty. He just makes highlight reels every single week for doing something that's considered dirty by the masses. He's not a little boy to where he can be called immature. He's a grown man that chooses to play more dirty than we've seen anyone play in years.

There's no argument that Suh is a vicious football player. The guy plays mean and the modern pussified fan can't tell the difference between mean and dirty. It doesn't hurt that the average fan is borderline retarded either.

Suh's problem is that he loses control of his temper(immature) not that he goes out and decides to hurt people(dirty). Stomping on a guy after a fight is a sign that he lost his temper. He didn't go out there looking for a chance to hurt someone.

Guys like Romo who would break people's fingers in the pile to try to rip the ball away were dirty. Fat Assbert, who coldly stood over a player and stomped on his face, is dirty.

Being violent is not dirty. It's football. Most of the things people are whining about were not even penalties a decade ago. You would have had people laughing in your face if you called Suh dirty in the 90's.

Default Re: Lions' Suh suspended two games for Thanksgiving stomp

This is just another example of the wussification of the NFL.

Im not a Lions fan, Suh should've been disciplined but this was excessive. How many players were fined before Goddell became Commish?

Goddell is in the process of ruining the game for fans that like a hard hitting, letting the players handle their business on the field. This started with Gene Washington a WR as the enforcement guy. It has only gotten worse with Anderson, and Whoever has taken over for Pereira as head of the officials is an ***** (s) the I word

When someone loses their cool a lot, it's no longer overblown. Suh has a pattern of behavior now.

Wrong, he was slamming the guys head on the turf and then stomped on him like an overstuffed toddler throwing a fit. It should have been 3+ games for his fake sorry cry to Goodell as*.

Default Re: Lions' Suh suspended two games for Thanksgiving stomp

I can't believe the title isn't something along the lines of :

SUH-SPENDED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really. Take it like this young man, AJ beat the hell outta someone's face on live TV and they did nothing because everyone from Goodell to ME knew that Innegan deserved it and that AJ is a decent dude.

This guy comes out on THANKSGIVING and plays like that? It probably would've just been another story instead of suspension if he had just stopped after the head slams.

KICKING?!?!?

That's ****ing weak Ndamakong. Real weak.

Knowingly violating the rules of whatever time period is the definition of dirty. He is intentionally (and specifically said on a couple occasions) refusing to alter his play to comply with the current rules. That's dirty. The players around him have an expectation of compliance with the rules. The guys opposite him would be playing differently if they were using 1990 rules as well. Unless you want to defend him as such a moron that he can't comprehend the rules (plead the moron defense) then the dude has played dirty so far.

NFL players completely disagree with you.

Midseason player poll: Ndamukong Suh voted dirtiest by landslide

With half the season finished, Sporting News’ network of NFL correspondents asked 111 players from 31 teams everything you want to know about what has happened—and will happen—in 2011.

As always in our midseason poll, players were not allowed to name their team, teammates or head coach for any of their answers.

Who is the dirtiest player in the league?

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh—36

Report: Lions' Ndamukong Suh plans to appeal 2-game suspension

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh plans to appeal his two-game suspension for stomping on a Green Bay Packers offensive lineman, according to a report on ESPN.
...
According to the ESPN report, Suh was encouraged to appeal his suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell -- the man who handed down the punishment.
...
The suspension is without pay, so Suh will forfeit $165,647 -- two-seventeenths of his $1.405-million base salary.
...
The Lions also are in line to be fined $50,000 for exceeding $100,000 in fines as a team (with a maximum of $50,000 per incident). Team fines are handed out after the season, after all appeals are exhausted.

Never did it though.

I never felt comfortable doing something to someone that would piss me off and make me want to fight if done to me.

Plus, some of the better coaches I've had convinced the team that revenge is much sweeter when handled legally between the whistles.

Guys want you to stoop their level and when you don't and simply kick their ass on the field, it demoralizes them. You can see it all in their eyes.

I agree.

From junior high to my senior year in high school, I had one good coach. The rest encouraged dirty play, fighting in the locker room, etc.

My best friend broke a kid's neck on a crackback block when we were sophmores. The coach took my friend aside:

Coach: "If he can't walk again, you have to visit him in the hospital."
Friend: "Really?"
Coach: "No. Just kidding. **** that guy." (walked off laughing).

The kid was fine and didn't lose any movement thankfully, but still
