Ndamukong Suh Avoids Suspension – Fined $30K For Contact
“I was dragged to the ground,” he said. “A lot of things happen to me. It’s part of the game.”
In an Associated Press report, Suh is reported as saying he didn’t even realize he had kicked Schaub until he saw it on Twitter.
“You can’t do much more about it. I was being dragged to the ground and my foot inadvertently hit the man. It’s over with. I’m moving forward.”
Good news for fellow NFL players! Forward is a lot less painful than downward.
$30,000 is basically one week’s salary for the 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Once a bright shining star, Suh has let several on the field controversies and off the field negative incidents tarnish him image.
NFL Commissioner is wiling to give Suh the benefit of the doubt and it looks like Suh got an early Christmas gift or a “Get Out of Jail Free” card in avoiding another suspension.
USA Today is reporting Lions President Tom Lewand and coach Jim Schwartz said Tuesday they agreed with the NFL’s decision not to suspend Suh for his kick on Schaub.
Schwartz called the kick inadvertent, and Lewand said, “We didn’t feel a suspension was merited, and we’re glad it was seen the same way by the NFL.”
Let’s hope that the kick really was an accident and not a case of the Lion who cried “Wolf”.
