Rob Gronkowski, Ndamukong Suh reportedly set to star on dating show

The day has finally come. We know you have all been anxiously awaiting the day that a major television network would announce their plans to feature Rob Gronkowski in a reality dating show, and that highly-anticipated day has finally come. According to the Detroit Free Press, the Gronk and Ndamukong Suh — along with several b-list celebrities — are set to star in a Fox celebrity dating show called “The Choice,” which premieres June 7.

For those of you who are familiar with NBC’s “The Voice,” the dating show will follow a similar format with blind auditions and spinning chairs. Instead of picking singers, the celebrities will blindly choose a date after receiving three rounds worth of information.

Other stars who are scheduled to appear include Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino from MTV’s “Jersey Shore” and Rob Kardashian, as in the brother of the Kardashian sisters. I think I speak for all of us when I say I’d be disappointed if Gronk doesn’t steal the show. Based on some of the hilarious comments he’s made this offseason and the amount of fun he had campaigning for the cover of Madden ’13, we expect nothing less than a show-stopping performance from Gronk week in and week out.

Bastion of sportsmanship Ndamukong Suh says he’s above bounties

Ndamukong Suh, who is perhaps the dirtiest defensive player in the NFL, took the opportunity Sunday to admonish the Saints for running a reprehensible bounty program.

Speaking prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup race Sunday, Suh told the Charlotte Observer “It’s unfortunate to hear these things come out. Me personally, I don’t take part in those things and knowing my teammates and knowing my coaches, we wouldn’t allow that.

“I understand it’s a tough situation the commissioner has to deal with. As he has in the past, he’s going to deal with it with a stiff hand. Hopefully, people can learn from the mistakes and make an example out of it.”

But wait a second, Ndamukong, your head coach was on Gregg Williams’ staff in Tennessee from 1999-2000. Are you sure Jim Schwartz wouldn’t allow something like that? He might not, but given Suh’s propensity for lying, it’s hard to take his word as the truth.

Ndamukong Suh Says His Reputation as Dirty Player has ‘No Substance Behind it’

Ndamukong Suh continues to plead ignorance in response to his reputation as a dirty player. The Lions defensive tackle spoke with ESPN’s Hannah Storm and laughed off the charges that he’s dirty.

“It’s funny to me. I don’t have issues of beating up people in bars. I know it’s not right. It doesn’t make sense to me. I think people try and make their own opinion and I think it’s a storyline,” Suh said of his reputation. “It’s a great storyline. I understood this year that a lot of people see me being a dirty player is a fun storyline to have and that’s what it is to me. It’s kind of comical to me keep saying something that really doesn’t have any substance behind it.”

Well Ndamukong, I used to defend you, but then you moved into the realm of indefensible after stomping Evan Dietrich-Smith during a game. No substance behind it? Just look at the picture above. You’re reputation isn’t changing anytime soon, and that’s the way it should be. You’ve done this to yourself, Suh.

Ndamukong Suh Tweets a Picture of Roger Goodell’s Coin Collection

Now that the Lions are out of the playoff, it is time to begin preparing for next season. For most, that means staying in shape and sticking to a strict workout routine. For someone like Ndamukong Suh, that can also include buttering up the NFL commissioner in preparation of another season full of illegal stomps and players complaining about the way you play. The only problem Suh ran into this week when he stopped by to pay Roger Goodell a visit is that the commish wasn’t in. Naturally, Suh took the opportunity to look around at some of his things and share them with the world. Check out this picture of Goodell’s coin collection that Suh tweeted out on Tuesday:

There you have it. Goodell is a coin collector.  I’m not sure he wanted everyone to know the kinds of valuables he keeps in his office, but it’s too late for that now.  Better put an extra lock on the door.

Saints OL Jahri Evans Says Ndamukong Suh is Dirty After the Whistle

Saints guard Jahri Evans is a Pro Bowl lineman preparing for his team’s Wild Card playoff game against the Lions Saturday. He has one of his toughest assignments of the season — protecting Drew Brees from Detroit’s rowdy defensive line led by Ndamukong Suh. Though Evans respects Suh, he recognizes the Lions lineman is dirty.

“I think some things he does is dirty, after the whistle,” Evans said, according to The Times-Picayune. “He needs to put a cap on that, but he’s a phenomenal player.”

Fellow guard Carl Nicks is prepared to act if Suh gets out of hand.

“If he tries some of the stuff on us that he does to other guys (in the league) I don’t think it would fly with me,” Nicks said.

If you’re wondering why all this is coming out now instead of Week 13 when the Saints beat the Lions 31-17, it’s because Suh was suspended that game for — you guessed it — a dirty play. But remember, Donkey Kong isn’t dirty until his mommy says so.

Evan Dietrich-Smith Calls Ndamukong Suh Shoelace Report a ‘Lie’ and ‘Fabrication’

Earlier on Thursday, we shared the story from former Packers player Matt Brock who says Ndamukong Suh may have stomped on Evan Dietrich-Smith because he was frustrated after having his shoelaces untied by the Packers guard all game. Brock says current Packers offensive line coach, James Campen, told him that was part of their plan to distract Suh. When asked about the charge Thursday, both Dietrich-Smith and Campen denied everything.

“No, absolutely not,” Campen said. “We have more important things to worry about than tying up someone’s shoes during the game.”

“That’s a complete fabrication,” Dietrich-Smith added. “Complete lie. I was never told anything and there were no acts of that sort. You can go back and watch the film but you won’t see me on the ground trying to untie shoes.”

I would expect both men to deny things, especially when Campen may have told Brock the story in confidence. But Dietrich-Smith is right — the one way to find out the truth is by watching the film. I don’t have access to it, but I’m sure that would tell us the real story. I would say we could ask Suh if it happened, but there are two problems: he’s a liar, and he’s not exactly talking to the media these days.

Ndamukong Suh May Have Stomped Packers G Because They Kept Untying His Shoelaces

What if I told you that Ndamukong Suh may have stomped on Evan Dietrich-Smith because he was frustrated that the Packers kept untying his shoes. Would you believe it?

You might have to, because that’s the theory that’s now being reported.

Former Packers lineman Matt Brock appeared on 750 The Game in Portland and said Ndamukong Suh may have stomped Dietrich-Smith because he was annoyed over having his shoelaces constantly untied by the Packers. Brock says his information came from James Campen, the current Green Bay offensive line coach.

Brock explained that the Packers had an inexperienced offensive line heading into their game with the Lions, so they devised a scheme to neutralize Suh. Here are Brock’s exact words from the show, as transcribed by MLive.com:
