On Tuesday, Detroit Lion’s DT Ndamukong Suh got in trouble again. Suh was fined $100,000 for an unnecessary roughness penalty in the Lion’s 34-24 win against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Suh told reporters,

“Really you just play football, that’s all I can do…. I don’t change, I’m going to always play tough, hard, that’s the way I was brought up at Nebraska, where I really learned football from the Pelinis and that staff and continue to play hard, play blue-collar football. I think it’s just, player safety is the league’s concern. You’ve got to only respect it and that’s one of the reasons I spoke to Sullivan as we walked into the halftime, and he understood where I was coming from. No hard feelings and same thing if he cut me so forth, so on, no hard feelings and go from there. That’s not my decision. I don’t really have an opinion on it… just going through the appeals process and we’ll go from there.”

    Suh needs to have more self-control. I know what he means by playing the game hard and doing your best, but still there are rules. Next time something like that happens he ought to be suspended for at least 3 games. You can apologize all you want, but when you end someone’s career it won’t help to apologize. Same goes for Green Bay’s Clay Matthews hit on Collin out of bounds.
