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

And how generous of SUH,as a coach we have to find a sponsor to buy most of these kids uniforms.And my company put up the dough for them,does that make me a good guy.Not really just giving back to the kids.I had a tough upbringing my Dad and Mom did their
best and since I have been fortunate I give as much as I can.Redwings you think I am a jerk and that is fine the feeling is mutual.
But I really am a good guy,me and my Business partner bought turkeys for the homeless the other day.

Remember something Brian.  Regardless of how much money Suh makes, he doesn't have to buy anybody anything.  I always teach my kids it's the thought that matters, not the amount of money you spend on a gift.  Suh has more money then he'll ever need so from that stand point it's not a big deal.  But the fact he thinks of others as often as he does matters... and it matters a lot.

As for what I think of you and what you think of me, none of that matters because it could all end in a second.  I think if you poll the people that have followed this argument between us you'll find most will say it won't end because you won't stop.  BUT... it could.  And from my end I'm more then willing to make it go away and stop this crap.

But for that to happen you have to start being consistent and stop insulting Detroit athletes every chance you get.  You told me in a Tiger's thread that Verlander wasn't a real competitor because he supposedly didn't want to pitch on short rest.   Yet Stafford plays with a fractured finger on his throwing hand and he plays with a splint on that hand and a glove on yet you blame him for int's.   That doesn't make sense to me.  Using your logic I would expect you would give him credit for not pulling himself out of games.  He could do that and nobody would say a word because he tried to play.  But the guy has kept trying... and kept fighting....

Forget his rookie season.  Going back to the beginning of last season up until he fractured his finger, over an 11 game stretch the guy had 26 td's and only 5 int's, absolutely incredible numbers for a young kid with little experience on a team with a questionable o-line and no running game.  

Believe me if you'd like... don't if you choose not to, but Stafford very soon is going to be a very special qb... wait and see.

HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE IT IS SPELLED HELMET

Wow, an insult? Would you like me to show you at least 5 posts from threads where you said you stopped insulting people?

Actually, I think I'm going to copy and paste those posts and send them as private messages to the people you said that to, just so they can see how awful you really are.

And great response to a valid post I made by the way..... good for you man.  Smart thinking.....

.I am a Little League football coach and in the game today
a few of the Kids from the other team where taunts our players sying DON'T MAKE ME GO SUH ON YOU.I know that guys
making millions could  less about the kids,but it does affect them.People say Suh is young and immature.But come on
he is a grown man in the NFL.I only hope that after this he learns a lesson.

That's on the parents that raise kids, not on athletes.  There will ALWAYS be at least one popular and a star pro athlete in every sport that doesn't do things the right way, that'll never change.  If Suh never screws up again somebody else will and the kids will see it.  It's up to parents to raise their own kids and quit depending on athletes and celebrities to do their job for them.  As a parent of 2 boys it makes me sick to my stomach to see how many parents out there are losing control of their kids....  too bad so sad for the parents if they can't handle their own children. 

Suh has to mature and owes it to himself, his family, the NFL and his teammates to make the changes necessary.  He doesn't owe the parents of kids playing football anything.   That being said Suh recently bought an entire kids football team equipment for all the kids of the team and contributes heavily in the community both in Michigan and Nebraska where he played football.  If that's not enough, too bad.

I'm not trying to justify pushing the players head to the ground -- I'm just saying those type of things happen quite often during a game.  Of course it doesn't happen often when a player does it three times in row, but that isn't what he will be suspended for -- it is going to be the kick afterward.

Mike.  Anybody complaining about pushing or holding a player's head to the ground and calling that dirty is just wasting everybody's time.  Stupid things like that happen ALL GAME LONG....  and what happens under the pile?  These guys literally try to break each other's fingers under the pile.  There is less respect in the NFL among players then in every other league combined. It's a violent game.

That being said the kick after Suh got up was disgraceful and can't be accepted by the league as an every day thing.  Suh is going to get fined heavily, and probably suspended for a game.  But after reading a story on CBS giving examples of previous NFL suspensions and lengths, I don't think it'll be anything more then 1 game and I wouldn't be completely blown away if it's zero.

James Harrison has been fined for about 125 thousand dollars in the NFL, and the time period his fines occurred over was about the same as Suh's offences.  Harrison literally laughed at the league out loud in interviews, said he didn't care about money, and told everybody how much he enjoys putting opposing players to sleep and how pumped he gets when he sees a knocked out player.  He was practically killing players with helmut to helmut hits yet he didn't get suspended... not after 1 screw up, or 2, or even 3.

Like I said I have mad respect for you and so do alot of other people.Don't become like you know who.1st off yes it does happen
that players may push a player head into the ground to get up.But that is not what Suh did,he did it 3 times.And are you kidding
a 300 lb angry man who tries to stomp on someone can DEFINITLY HURT SOMEONE. 
I'm not trying to justify pushing the players head to the ground -- I'm just saying those type of things happen quite often during a game.  Of course it doesn't happen often when a player does it three times in row, but that isn't what he will be suspended for -- it is going to be the kick afterward.

also -- don't get me wrong -- of course someone that big if they kick someone they can definitely do damage.  look what haynesworth did to that guy when he kicked him in the head.  i was saying where Suh kicked him wasn't going to cause any damage.  doesn't change the fact that it was a bush league play by Suh and shows he has ALOT of growing up to do.  I have defended this guys play, but after this past week -- he has proven he is everything people have called him and then some.

I am unfortunately an owner of a Suh Jersey and I said after his last fine, I wouldn't be bringing it out the rest of the year.  After this play -- I don't think you will see me wear it ever again.  He doesn't deserve the fans attention by wearing a jersey with his name.
