Report: Ndamukong Suh called Goodell to apologize

Ndamukong Suh's been subject to plenty of judgment following his ejection-worthy actions against Green Bay in Detroit's Thanksgiving day loss.

The defensive lineman initially said he wouldn't apologize for stomping at Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith, but reversed course by posting an apology on his Facebook page. And Suh also reportedly called Roger Goodell to apologize for his actions on Sunday night.

That's according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who reported the details of Suh's phone call on Monday evening.

Of course, Suh's apologies might not matter -- it's believed that the Lions defensive tackle could receive as much as a two-game suspension, and it seems likely that Suh only apologized to mitigate the danger of a multiple-game suspension.

That's because Suh, immediately following the Lions loss, wasn't exactly contrite about his actions.

"I was on top of a guy being pulled down," Suh said, according to CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco. "I was trying to get up off the ground. You see me pushing his helmet down because I was trying to remove myself from the situation. As I'm getting up, I'm getting pushed, so I'm getting myself in balance and getting away from the situation. I know what I did and the man upstairs knows what I did."



The visual evidence offered a story quite to the contrary, and it's no surprise that Suh was ejected. On the bright side, it's also possible, as CBS Sports' Charley Casserly pointed out Sunday, that Suh's punishment will be shortened because he missed part of that game against the Packers.

Either way, there's likely to be a heated debate about Suh's punishment if the league delivers the news on Tuesday, as expected.

.I got out in 05 you dip...didn't say I was there now..

The film was released in may of 2006. Let me guess, they were there for months and months, then spent countless days editing the film. In essence, you were in the film just before you came home.

Btw, I don't need your pix, I can get the same ones on the web.

Done with you exposed liar. You should be ashamed!!!

Report: Ndamukong Suh called Goodell to apologize

"Oh, and I'll continue to work on my behavior, because I endeavor to be a solid NFL citizen and a role model for kids, not some puke that commits an egregious personal foul every week.  But, for the record, I haven't done that."

It probably went something like this: "I didn't stomp on anyone.  To those that think I did, I have no idea what they're basing that on.  Just look at the film - I never touched him.  But Roger, just in case you somehow still think I did, then I apologize.  But please, get some glasses, because I didn't."

The kid is a monster football player, an unbelievable talent that's going to be in this league a long long time.
Until somebody takes out his kness and ends his career. Funny how players police themselves in this league. Players have voted him the dirtiest player i the league. His days are numbered. What goes around comes around.
