DT SUH FINED $30,000 FOR GROIN KICK
Mon, 03 Dec 2012 08:46 PM EST

Ndamukong Suh’s reputation for being an unpleasant player was born as an NFL rookie.

Suh slammed two QBs to the ground by grabbing their helmets 2 years ago, and his image became rather more notorious last season when he infamously stomped on a competitor.

Just when the Detroit Lions defensive tackle started to improve his ability to play the game cleanly this season, he had a setback.

But if you believe he’s ashamed, guess again.

The NFL fined Suh $30,000 for unnecessary roughness because he kicked Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. The previous day, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league didn’t suspend him as it couldn’t reach a judgment on his intent.

Schaub shouldn’t hold his breath waiting to hear Suh say he’s sorry.

”I was dragged to the ground,” Suh announced. ”A lot of things happen to me.

”It’s part of the game.”

Suh was on his chest after being taken down by an offensive lineman when his left cleat hit Schaub below the belt in Detroit’s loss to Houston.

”I just thought it was very Suh-like to give a little extension there at the end,” Texans linebacker Connor Barwin said.

”I just thought that it was really Suh-like to give a small extension there at the end,” Texans linebacker Connor Barwin related.

For the first time, Suh tried to explain what happened. Football spreads

”It’s a crazy play, it’s one that unfortunately happened,” he announced. ”I failed to even realize it till the end of the game. Apart from that, I cannot do much more about it. I was being dragged to the ground and my foot accidentally hit the man.

”Definitely the perception in the NFL is he’s a dirty unclean player,” Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas recounted. ”The perception among players is that he’s not very well liked. The perception among the fans is starting to be the same.

”It’s one thing to play to win and have physical hits during the course of a game or be an aggressive player, but it’s one other thing to take just blatant cheap shots all the time.”

The NFL suspended Suh for 2 games last season after he stamped on Green Bay’s Evan Dietrich-Smith in a nationally televised game on Thanksgiving Day. Suh said sorry to Dietrich-Smith personally for treading on his right arm deliberately and has shown remorse in public for what he did last year.

”I think I’m always going to be punished some form or fashion for last Thanksgiving,” Suh recounted. ”I says sorry for it and I’ll continue to apologize for it. It’s something that happened, a mistake that I made. I’m living up to it and I’ll continue to move past it. Some individuals may not, some people will and some people will teeter-totter back and forth depending on whatever the situation is.”

Suh has been fined in previous seasons for roughing up QBs: Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton, Chicago’s Jay Cutler and Cleveland’s Jake Delhomme. He simply cut the checks because he’ll make $40 million guaranteed – with an opportunity to get paid as much as $68 million – in a 5-year contract signed after Detroit Lions drafted him No. 2 overall in 2010.
