Ndamukong Suh returns to the Detroit Lions this week after missing the last two games because of a suspension. Suh was suspended for stomping on Packers lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith during the Packers-Lions Thankgsiving game. Factoring into the suspension was Suh’s reputation for being a dirty player; he’s been fined and penalized for multiple personal fouls the past two seasons.
While serving his suspension, Suh crashed his car and allegedly lied to the police about the incident to protect his reputation. He was asked about the stomp and the car crash by reporters Wednesday, but he refused to answer any questions. He barely acted human, insisting he was only there to talk about football, playing the Raiders, and rejoining his team. It reminded me a lot of the Mark McGwire “I’m not here to talk about the past” Senate testimony.
The whole thing was pathetic. Take a look at the video via 97.1 The Ticket:
On top of refusing to answer questions for the media, Suh later walked out on his weekly radio show because he was frustrated with the persistent line of questioning. At one point he told hosts Mike Valenti and Terry Foster that they weren’t asking the right questions.
I have a news tip for Ndamukong: Don’t want to answer questions about your bad actions? Don’t get into trouble. You brought this on yourself and there’s nobody to blame but you.
I used to defend Ndamukong Suh for his hard play, but now it’s becoming obvious that he is dirty, and that he is a liar.
