ndamukong suh(off topic)
what are your guys opinion of him. I had heard numerous things about him in terms of being a great nfl player but it wasnt until today where he repeatedly shoved a green bay packers lineman's head into the ground and then stomped on him where i heard about his checkered past. He was penalized 3 times in his first season and a half prior to this incident. After his rookie campaign, he was voted by his nfl peers as the dirtiest player in the nfl. Thats quite an accomplishement in only 1 season of football. ANd now after today, he continues to deny doing anything wrong stating he was merely bracing himself on the opponents helmet to get up which is delusional.
So what are your thoughts on him and his actions and should he be suspended.
Should be suspended 2 games, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets 4 though. I had NO idea he was the dirty player he has turned out to be, that unsportsmanlike today is just too much man. That's where you draw the line. Stomping another man with cleats on? I dont like that kind of thing. He's a physically dominant player, but he has be REAL dirty this season. I don't think it's cool. If anyone was to be doing these things I would expect it to be his linemate Nick Fairley, who already had a rep for being a dirty player and a hothead in college.
Do I think he's wrong, NO...Yes it was dirty and yes it was against the "RULES" but I'd rather have a great player that hates EVERYONE ELSE on the opponent's sideline than some soft ass excuse for a Football player laying down for The Packers, I know he's going to get a ton of heat for this last act(after he pushed the guys head to the ground he also curb stomped the guys arm) BUT...Do you want someone who takes the beating with a smile or Someone that does some beating of his Own...he should become a better judge of the situation, players take liberties all day long if you let them, Suh needs to find a balance between TOUGH and DIRTY...Pittsburgh Steelers=TOUGH...The Detroit Lions = DIRTY...perception is also a Mother effer...when your on the Detroit Lions people don't expect to get their asses kicked when they play against you, Now they have something to worry about when coming to Detroit...
He is a Jerkaholic
He's an extremely good football player who just needs to control himself better.
Albert Haynesworth had got 5 games for stepping on Gurode's head while he was on the Titans.
I would expect Suh to at least get 4-5, because he is a repeat offender of doing foul play.
Me personally I enjoy it. Hes the NFL's version of ron artest or rahseed wallace in any other era of the nfl he'd be praised and adored in this soft era hes considered "dirty" smh
i honestly dont see the comparison with sheed. Sheed never did anything dirty towards other players and was always league wide respected by his peers. It was only refs who hated him but he was never dirty in any way whatsover. Stomping on guys with cleats is a different story.
I'll clasify him in the Kevin Garnett caragory as guys who just get too caught up in the moment, and just have a firey attitude, but that doesn't mean that it's Ok. I think he is a good guy just needs to control himself a bit more. But he needds to admit his mistakes, and move on, and just try to be a little better at putting his emotions in check.
And I think he'll get a 25% off on the suspension, since he's all buddy buddy with Roger.
my thing is that in the nfl, everybody is tough. Every guy is a man who will stand up for himself and his teammates. It's one thing to go to war and hit guys and talk trash and get in their face, but at the end of the day you need to show respect for your fellow warriors and respect the game. Ripping helmets off and stomping with cleats is not tough guy antics, it's just plain cowardly and dirty.
Yea, But hes in a situation where he has to change the culture sort to speak. And Everyone in the NFL is definitely not "tough". Ancd its not cowardly cuz lets be real here if he wanted to hurt someone hes physically capable of probably doing it whenever he felt like it. how many people has he injured? not hurt but injured? And i wouldnt compare him to garnett cuz if garnett was in football hed only hit kickers and Qb's(Point guards)
^ And Zaza Pachulia.
You dont think its cowardly to stomp a man laying on the ground for no reason at all? AFTER you banged his head in the ground 3 times? Get real. That was as weak as it gets.
He did his best to redo the Albert Haynesworth today.
Suh is a great player, a top notch DT. He's also very intelligent and well spoken, so it's a little ironic that he resorts to dirty actions on the field. It's very surprising that even after he had a sit down with Roger Goodell that he's still pulling crap like he did today. For some reason he just can't control himself. You would think that someone who has the amount of talent he possesses would be able to stay under control and not get caught up in the emotions of an NFL game, but for some reason he just can't keep his cool. I'm guessing he gets a 2 game suspension, but Goodell might make a statement with a few more games since he only sat down with him a few weeks ago to discuss Suh's on the field actions.
He's a beast. Just needs to learn to control his temper/emotions better. He needs to learn to play with his edge, but without being dirty. The last thing I want is for him to start playing soft.
He seems like a great kid... Just maybe a little immature and hot headed during certain moments. He needs to grow up a little and learn what it means to be a professional.
Suspend him a few games and have somebody talk with him... Like a mentor or something. Somebody that he'll actually listen to.
I like him a lot though.
I can see him now going to an intervention once his career is over talking about, "I was on antidepressants my whole career and just could not cope with my problems"
Dude is just a headcase who happened to be misevaluated throughout the draft process. Hey it's not his fault though, because if you can trick 'em you can beat 'em.
I'm just waiting on the SUHspension like everyone else.
who knows what was said in the scuffle between the two as they both were grabbing at each other after the whistle...to say stomping on 6'6 300 lb LINEMEN'S arm a Cowardly Act, would you??? Would you even attempt throwing on those pads and wagging war with 300 pound Mastadon's every week...He got carried away and will PAY FOR IT...But to be honest, he needed to whoop that ass on the Field, while the whistles watch and admire in Horror, legally!!!...Dirty play is one thing, every player in The NFL/NBA/MLB/NCAA/NHL and MLS is a DIRTY player at some point(they sweat don't they?, just kidding) But going Gregory Hines on a guys arm(Or whoever taps dances Nowadays *for the Kids) when you can simple kick his ass Legally is Going Overboard...still I love it and will root Suh anyway,he's a guy I'm liking more by the minute...
I don't really understand what you are saying or if it was directed towards me, but if you are trying to justify Suh stepping on a mans arm who is laying on the ground, WITH CLEATS ON, after he had already banged the mans head on the ground 3 times as not cowardly I don't know what to tell you my man.
You asking me if I would strap on pads and play football is so far from being relevant in this discussion as well, and not a good example.
And you're right. Who really does know what was said on the field. But just because somebody says something to you doesn't mean you go banging heads on the field and stepping on peoples arms and risking injury! What sense does that make? You really must not notice that there is smack talk after literally EVERY PLAY in the NFL. This overgrown 330 lb man can justifiably throw a tandrum because "we don't know what was said in the scuffle between the two"? -___- Get outta here with that.
And then Suh tries to play "the man upstairs knows what happened" card. He was trying to catch his balance? Im convinced some of these athletes don't know they play on TV and the people who watch can see the replays whenever they want. What kind of half-ass lie is that? You step on people with 1 foot when you lose your balance? Who is his PR person?
