Suh apparently fined $20,000 for Dalton hit

For his helmet-popping hit on Bengals QB Andy Dalton in the Lions first preseason game, Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has been fined $20,000. We think.

There’s been no official confirmation by the NFL, but judging by Suh’s Twitter update, it seems to be so.

Quoth the Suh: $20,000REALLY???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #NFL #BIGFAIL"

Though the hit didn’t appear dirty, the league will almost always come down on the side of protecting the quarterbacks, and since Suh has built a nice little history of playing not-nice with the league’s QBs, the fine isn’t a surprise. Maybe he hasn’t crossed a line yet, but he’s getting ever so much closer.

And his wallet is getting lighter.

Good

Instead of Donkeykong Suh having that $20,000, the Boys and Girls Clubs of America has that $20,000


I'm fine with that

He didn't need to slam him to the ground like he did. The guy was wrap'd up and wasn't trying to escape, then he gets body slam'd. I do believe the fine was a bit much, I think the penalty should of been enough.

I would like to see the NFL take a page out of the NBA's rule book concerning personal fouls. If you get 2 personal fouls that result in 15 yard penalties, you sit the next game.

This is total BS. Lets just put pink gloves on with powder puffs on the defense and dress all the QB's in skirts and flashing helmets that say caution. Get a grip NFL and commissioner, this football. It is a rough sport and thats why wimps don't play the game. If the players want to complain, then they don't need to be playing the game. Let football be what it is. Its time to MAN-UP.
