Suh, Goodell make up during meeting

SuhPosted by Josh Katzowitz

Ndamukong Suh had his meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday, and he’s taken to his Facebook page to tell you all about it.

It seems to have gone very well indeed.

"I am very appreciative of the opportunity to sit and speak with the Commissioner and his staff to clarify a few questions about my play, and the game in general,” Suh wrote. “I have gained a better understanding how I need to play the game to help my team win.

“I look forward to the rest of the season and the doing everything we can to bring the Lombardi Trophy to Detroit."

Suh has been characterized as a dirty player (probably because he’s seemingly always trying to rip off the other quarterback’s face), and he’s been hit hard by fines -- which is why he asked to meet with Roger Goodell. He wanted to get clarification on why his style of play has led to so many personal fouls and fines. Now, apparently he’s got it.

“We appreciate that Ndamukong Suh, Coach (Jim) Schwartz, and team president Tom Lewand took the time to meet with us today,” Goodell said in a statement. “Ndamukong plays the game with great skill and passion and is a major reason for the Lions’ success this year. We reviewed video showing that he has clearly made the adjustments to play consistently within the rules so that he can continue to help the team. We commend Ndamukong’s leadership in taking the initiative to schedule today’s meeting.”

Glad to see Suh and the NFL are, once again, BFFs. Opposing quarterbacks can only hope those good feelings last.

.You are not important to me at all,yet all you do is make JEALOUS
comments about my existance,TRULY SAD.

No, I make mocking comments about your imaginary existance.  Big difference.

You talk about Michigan yet you live in N.C claiming to be an important part on the war on terrorism,what a joke.


Another lie.  Show the the post where I said this and I will remove you from my favorites and never reply to one of your posts again.

As an objective observer do you think that Suh pushed that QB or hit him with a forearm.


Well, I'm not that objective.  I just watched the clip and for me, it's hard to say if it was a hit or a push (probably a lot closer to a hit though).  Somebody's head could snap back with the same intensity from a hit or a push from Suh.  So, I don't really know from that one particular play especially after the second angle.  Just from that single play and how Suh got him down, I think Suh was trying to make sure Cutler didn't get away.  Just my opinion though.

I just don't get it,it is obvious you don't like me  YET YOU STILL HAVE ME AS A FAVORITE SO YOU CAN TROLL ME EVERYDAY.
Yet do you see me trolling what you have to say.You are not important to me at all,yet all you do is make JEALOUS
comments about my existance,TRULY SAD.

It is obvious that you are very angry and also ashamed of your EXISTANCE,itherwise you would not keep refering to
my SUCCESS,and that is SAD.

You talk about Michigan yet you live in N.C claiming to be an important part on the war on terrorism,what a joke.

And you keep talking about ebattles yet it is you who thinks he us the tough guy,not me.I am happy just ignoring
you but you can not do that.So like the HOMELESS people living on my street,I will now just pretend you do not
EXIST.Say what you want.But everyone sees you trolling and stalking me.And they all saw the answer to the
QUESTION I asked you.Your response was you would do NOTHING.
Listen, I don't see any foul language in this post or any name calling unless somebody calls brian8 something first.  I've read a few of his posts and the worst thing he really calls anybody is a 'homer'.... and it's not really even that bad.  As a Lions fan, we have a Jets fan posting and paying attention to what the Lions are doing.... how bad can that be?  The Lions are 6-2 and pretty much control their own destiny towards the playoffs.

As for Brian8 calling Suh a dirty player, I'm pretty sure Suh has heard much worse on the football field.  What we view as a dirty player is probably different from him and I'm with the majority here thinking that a dirty player is someone who is trying with intent the to put somebody out for the season whereas Suh's penalties could have put somebody out for the season but were not with that kind of intent.  Call me a homer, but that's how I see it.

Brian8 is just a fan of football talking about football.  Not a big deal to get upset about.

Is that the best you can come back with?  No comments on the link that shows the hit in question?  No defense of your daily pursuit of bashing everything Michigan?  Just a tired grade school insult as a weak attempt at deflection?  That's a subpar performance even for you.  Maybe you should try sleeping once in a while instead of fighting e-battles defending your made-up existance.
