Ndamukong Suh suspended two games

UPDATE: Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been informed that he will be suspended for two games without pay, Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports.  He will appeal his suspension, with Art Shell serving as his appeals officer.

Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will be suspended for at least two games for his third quarter stomping incident against the Packers on Thanksgiving day, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

On top of that, Suh may be required to attend an anger management class.

Furthermore, Charlie Casserly of CBS said it’s no coincidence that the former Cornhusker is behaving like he is at the pro level.

“I talked to general managers and scouting directors over the weekend and they told me absolutely there were red lights at Nebraska and even before that that did not surprise them when they see Suh behave like this in the NFL.

Note: Commissioner Roger Goodell, in his tenure, has suspended five players. Only one of them, Albert Haynesworth, was suspended for more than one game.

    Thing is, none of this is official until the league announces the suspension. They will not do that until after all the weeks games are played, meaning Tuesday at the earliest. The report is probably accurate, but still speculation at this point.

  2. Jenny says:

    I think he should be suspended for the season….this is NOT his first incident and has anger management issues.
    Then he lied about it too
    this is not professional behavior

    you are right – this is not the first incident. I understand that tempers flair – you want to beat your opponent but to lie about not stomping & then when you issue an appology you do not include the guy you stomped. He has no respect for anyone.

    This is the dumbest poll I’ve ever seen. One game is enough, no punches were thrown…are you serious? How about an option for more than 2 games? This site is hilarious.

  5. Russ Loede says:

    Really? Many have said Suh’s punishment was not harsh at all, and should have been harsher, which I disagree with.

  6. Olivier says:

    I agree : 2 matches are not enough.
    There’s Suh behavior, first and mostly, but there’s more to the table.
    There’s the behavior Suh endorses, the responsability he takes, and the example he shows. Being suspended 2 mere games gives a clear signals to all dirty or would-be dirty players : “Hey guys, you can stomp, it will only cost you 2 games”. Heck ! From a $60M contract ?
    Finally, there’s the feeling on the field. We watch football as a spectacle, but also as a sport. We’re not watching K1 and we’re not watching war. What if the offense goes frightened on the field ? That’s not what we wsant to see. Football is a tough sport, contactfull, but it remains and must remain a sport.
    Season suspension, and a fine for the Lions.
    Let’s make ’em think about it.
