NFL won't act on Suh immediately

Posted on: November 24, 2011 6:11 pm
 
Don't expect the NFL to act on the reprehensible foot stomp by Ndamukong Suh this week.

An NFL spokesman told me that plays from Week 12 to be reviewed for potential discipline will be done so under the league's normal guidelines after the completion of all games. Repeat: all games.

So no decision until, at the earliest, Tuesday and likely after that.

Based on information from several league sources few would be surprised if Suh was suspended for at least several games and possibly the remainder of the season. The NFL is understandably angry. The dirty cheap shot happened during one of the league's most visible days.

NFL won't act on Suh immediately

Suh is an idiot. And he will be punished for being said idiot. At the very least 2 games. But after that "apology?", Goodell will tack on a few more. If you don't understand what you did was so wrong, Tuesday will enlighten you.
I contend that the bigger problem is Schwartz. Because the whole Lion team has become nothing short of a bunch of thugs. Look at last weekend. Fairley drives a QB into the ground, a full 3 seconds after the whistle. In yesterdays game, when Rodgers fumbled, Fairley was standing RIGHT THERE, and he should have gone for the ball, but what does this other thug do? He goes after Rodgers and takes him to the ground.......hard! 
And also, this has just started to happen since Schwartz has been there. I understand that he's trying to change the culture in Detroit. But to go out and have your players try to injure other teams players, ON PURPOSE. The NFL will not let that happen. So don't be surprised if either the Lions organization, or Schwartz himself gets fined some large coin.
whitebread,

your post is more ridiculous than Suh's "apology".  exactly HOW is the NFL going to fine the Lions Organization?!?!  for what?  and i'll give you a hint -- if the NFL didn't even fine Schwartz for his confrontation with Harbaugh, there is ZERO chance he will ever be fined for the action of one of his players on the field.  That is pure stupidity.

for crying out loud -- please tell me you are NOT whining over a legal play?!?!  Once a QB fumbles or throws an interception they are fair game.  Where were you during the Lions/Bears game??  Why weren't you ridiculing DJ Moore for going after Stafford and blocking him all the way down the field while two Lions ran right past him to make a play on the guy who intercepted the ball???

everything else in your post is so over the top and absolutely ridiculous.  if fairley would have drove cutler to the ground 3 seconds after the whistle -- he would have had to stand there for a good 5 seconds to wait for the whistle, then another 3 seconds before taking cutler down.  he was throwing a pass genius.  he was flagged and fined for the play, there is no reason to try to embellish the story.

also -- schwartz took over an 0-16 team -- there was no Suh, there was no Fairley, there was no KVB, there was no Corey Williams, etc. etc. -- these players have been added in the last 2+ years.  so stop acting like all these guys were on the Lions roster prior to Schwartz becoming coach and all of sudden they are bad guys.  It is also pure stupidity to say a coach is telling his players to go out and try to injury other players "ON PURPOSE", as you seem to think.

there is no doubt what Suh did after the play was malicious.  stepping on a guys arm isn't going to injure the guy though -- i'm sure it can leave a bruise, but it isn't going to end a career.  the reason he will get suspended is because of the fact that he is a repeat offender.  his other hits were much worse than what he did to the OL, but it is just the end of the rope for his chances to prove he isn't dirty in my eyes.  the guy is dirty.

Aburg Butch, a lions fan of course will defend his idiot player, even after a 3rd down stop, which could have made the score 10-0 instead of 14-0 and completely deflating the team enroute to another blowout against a good team. Lions can only beat bad teams such as broncos, barely carolina, have they beat anybody else in the past 6 weeks??? Good teams blow them out and they throw little fits about it since they are classless thugs no wonder Detroit is the murder capital of the world.

How can we have any confidence that Suh will be held responsible for his continued breaking of the rules? Afterall, the man making the decision is the same goon that allowed convicted felon dog torturer Mike Vick back into the game.
This AFTER Mike Vick paid his debt to society, no?

Suh is nothing more than a common street thug.  From chiding Matt Ryan who was down and injured, to the recent stomping of the Packer player.  This guy is a classless punk who would be in a prison cell somewhere if not for football.  He also isn't very intelligent either, because the nice thing about football is you can hammer the guy your'e upset with the next play.  All you have to do is wait for the next snap of the football. This guy is a disgrace to PROFESSIONAL athletes everywhere, especially the NFL. By the way, there is nothing "mild" about a foot stomp

I know hoopsisbest slamming a guys head into the ground multiple times and then loading up and deliberately trying to stomp on a guy more than just once after the play is over is just a mild incident and with cleats wouldn't risk seriously injuing somebody at all. And it is a perfectly legal football move as well. Really your just as big of an idiot as Suh is, your probably his cousin or something to say something that stupid.

Suh isn't doing anything different than his peers are doing every game, the difference is, he has the league microscope and at least one camera on just him every minute that he is on the feild, He's that good! All his opponents had to paint a bad image on him because they can't beat him on the feild, all these veterans cry loud enough to the comish and he has to act with politically correctness. This is the only way to stop what was becoming a dominat force.This is so pathetic, this guy is good for what used to be "Big Boy Game", stop trying to strip him of what is one of the best talents to hit this league in a lot of years.If its getting a little to rough for todays cream puff balet dancing "football" players.........RETIRE!

If you let this go then what will happen next?? This isn't the first time that Suh has acted like a jerk. How many times has he been fined in the past 3? I think that some sort of suspention is due to him. Maybe he won't be the dirty player any more. This isn't the NFL of years past. I guess you have never played the game. If it were you getting stomped on I bet your outlook would be different!!!!

He needs to be suspended for the rest of this season including playoffs and fined maybe $50,000 or whatever amount that he will feel. Players need to know that this is not tolerated. He does it again then a ban for up to 1 year and so on.

I'll not jump on the media bandwagon on this one.  Everyone is overreacting to a fairly mild incident in a wildly violent game.  The chances of the foot stomp Suh did causing any harm compared to regular "legal" play was laughable.  Come on folks, this is pure hype.
