We Created a Monster

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP)—Ndamukong Suh(notes) is going back to the NFL, this time hoping for some leniency.

The league suspended Detroit’s All-Pro defensive tackle without pay for two games on Tuesday, punishing the second-year player for roughing up a Green Bay Packers offensive lineman after the whistle last week. Suh promptly appealed his suspension, hoping his stomp doesn’t keep him away from his playoff-hopeful teammates when they need him most.

Full Story

Sometimes I wonder who this guys thinks he is. Don't get me wrong. I love Suh just as much as the next guy. I think this "stomp" was more or less a "get the fuck off me" move which every athlete is familiar with. When you come out of the pile you're just flailing around kicking and screaming because you don't know who's coming after you next. This little leg move is similar to shoo-ing away a pet or a red-headed step child. He's not trying to stomp the guy, he's more or less saying get away from me, right now. If Suh actually stomped this idiot, there would be a lineman sized crater in the middle of Ford Field.

That being said, he comes off the field dropping "bullshit" bombs and whining to the Schwartz. Not a good look. This is the NFL, bub. You know, the same league that'll fine you $15 Grr for yelling at a fan or coming in too high on a cupcake QB. You so much as lift your leg to scratch your knee and put it down the wrong way, or pick it up to simulate a dog pissing on a fire hydrant as a celebration and the ref will red card your ass( yes, I'm comparing it to soccer. The NFL is getting close, no?).

The real issue here is Suh's ego. When he called up the commish to apologize he prolly called Goodell's personal celly and called him Rog'. But where does it end? With the Lions missing the playoffs because of his absence? Only time will tell.

I believe Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said it best. "Know your role, and shut your mouth." You're only a second year guy, Ndomakong. Fly under the radar for a bit and take your licks when you have the opportunity. Don't get all diva on us now, kid. We need ya bad.
