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.

@ i am hoping its before the saints game and i am a lions fan. i think they will suspend him for 3 games, the nfl wont suspend him any longer then that though, so suh can come back for the last game against GB and they can get great ratings.

Football is a tough, physical, abusive game but there is no room in the game for idiots like Suh.  Ban him from the NFL and take Detroit's #1 pick next year.

BS. Having a 300+ guy kicking with cleats when you are lying on a flat surface under your exposed arm isn't likely to be dangerous? He did it intentionally. He had no concern about the damage he could have done. It raises question about your ethics to define a willful attack on a man on his back on the ground with cleats as "it isn't likely to end his career".

And as for Schwartz, we dont' know, but he's responsbile for running the ship, and controlling players who act out of line, whether they are veterans or rookies. There is no place in college or professional football for guys who repeatedly blow their stacks and try to injure other players.

I take it back. I said that Detroit fans are angry at Suh also.

I guess my friends aren't the ones writing comments on this site. Some Detroit fans dont' seem to understand what a jerk Suh was.

It's dumbfounding to me that Detroit fans could defend Suh in the least.

Even if it was his first bad play, you don't step on someone's bare arm, kicking him when he is down (figuratively and literally...look it up in the Dictionary).

He even puts his teammates in danger because he can't control himself. Other players around the league know about it, and there are ways to get back.

The bottom line is he feels no guilt, only shame. This is a hero?

Detroit Fans are just as upset with Suh as you are, and not because he won't be able to play.
He is arrogant. He is self-centered, and worse.  It's amazing how nice he sounds off the field.
So no complaints from Detroit if he gets appropirately punished.

The worst of it all was that he was apologetic to his team, to himself for doing something (stupid) (I'll say) and apologetic to God, but not the player he could have injured.

He didn't think to be concerned about the fellow he stomped on. Even if it were an accident, which it wasn't, he would have gone over and seen the effect of his "slip." and apologized anyway. It should have been the first thing on his mind. He never thought about it.

He acted like trash on the field and he thought like trash when talking about it later. What a waste of a draft choice, unless he grows up in a hurry. He's going to have some time on the bench to think about it.

big-n-nasty23, football cleats aren't like baseball cleats, especially stomping in the fatty section of an armpit area.  It truly wasn't as big a deal as everyone is making out.  Neither the slamming of the padded, helmeted head, or the mild stomping of a very padded area of the body is that big of a deal.  Again, I am comparing this illegal part of what happened to the LEGAL part of what happens in a football game.  There was ZERO damage to the opposing player, ZERO.  Suh doesn't strike me as a guy that would have done the same thing to an unprotected civilian, so let's all get a bit of a grip before we label Suh a savage.  This stuff happened just about every game in the old days...with less protection, and cleats that make today's cleats feel like a pillow.  I'll pass on letting the media do my thinking for me.
