Ndamukong Suh suspended 2 games, will appeal

As CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman noted earlier, Ndamukong Suh was suspended two games without pay by the NFL on Tuesday for his actions in Detroit's loss to Green Bay on Thanksgiving.

Suh received the suspension due to the fact that the incident in the Packers-Lions game was Suh's fifth on-field violation over the past two years, according to the NFL.

"NFL Vice President of Football Operations Merton Hanks notified Ndamukong Suh today that he has been suspended without pay for the Lions' next two games for his unsportsmanlike conduct in the Lions-Packers game on Thanksgiving Day," a statement from the NFL, obtained by Freeman, reads. "It was Suh's fifth violation of on-field rules in the past two seasons that has resulted in league discipline. Suh may not practice or be at the team practice facility for any other activities during the two-game suspension.

"He will be reinstated on December 12. Under the CBA, the suspension may be appealed within three business days. If appealed, an expedited hearing and decision would take place this week in advance of this weekend's games."

Suh drew a lot of criticism for his decision not to apologize for his actions, then apologize via Facebook (!), then finally call Roger Goodell on Sunday night and apologize for his actions on Thursday.

Suh isn't the only one who stands to lose money here ($164,000, to be exact). The Lions could also be a little lighter in their proverbial wallets. Freeman explains:

"League rules stipulate that when a player is suspended or fined, the amount of the fine, up to a maximum of $50,000 per infraction, counts towards a club's season total.

"If a team reaches $100,000 in fines the club must forfeit $50,000. If a team reaches $150,000, then it must forfeit an additional $25,000, and match any subsequent fine/suspension amounts for remainder of season.

So, bottom line, the Suh suspension put the Lions over that $100,000 season total. Lions players have already been fined at least that much this season so not only is that $100,000 mark already likely been reached, the next mark could be as well. The team fine would happen at the end of the season once all appeals and reductions are accounted for."

There's more (of course there is): a source close to the embattled defensive tackle tells Freeman that Suh has appealed his suspension. "Suh was urged, I'm told, by union and others that suspension was heavy handed and he should appeal. He officially has."

Rsteele.  It's funny how he makes fun of you for waking for posting an early morning message but doesn't realize he responded to your post 30 minutes later.  Some of the stuff this briancrackball guy has come up with today is really good.  Like where he quotes me talking about how Harrison admitted being proud of hurting other players but then talking about how Suh's response to the media was wrong.  Briancrackball also told us as long as a flag isn't thrown, the player didn't do anything wrong so it's ok.  Seriously, I think this guy is a retard to say the least....


I think it goes without saying that he has no credibility here...not to anyone with half a brain! You know why he posted a half an hour after my post this morning...his mom just got him outta bed for school! There is no way thats a grown man on the other side of those messages...or maybe like you say...retard!

Hey redwings,
You said 10 times you would ignore my post,yet every comment I make you have something STUPID to say.I did not say Harrison was not flagged because noone saw him,He was not flagged because they weree clean hits.Because he told Goodell to go FK himself.Goodell has made it personal and fines him for hits that the refs thought were clean.YOU FOOL.

SUH VOTED DIRTIEST PLAYER BY HIS PEERS.

Changed my mind. I'm going to keep embarassing you every chance I get, especially when you make posts like the one above.

So the hits were legal that Harrison was fined for?  Is that why Harrison finished a very close 2nd in the NFL in 2010 for the dirtiest player award?  Is that why Sports Illustrated 2 months ago took a vote of almost 300 NFL players and he finished 1st ?

You are a fu**** loser Brian... the biggest loser these boards have seen in many, many years.

And don't be confused.  Nobody likes you on these boards Brian.  They all think you're a fu**** loser.  They might be civil just to be nice but in the back of their minds everybody knows what the "8ball" in your name really stands for, and it's not playing pool either.

HA HA...what a comeback cornball! It doesn't surprise me at all that you would try to attack me personally! When are you gonna figure out that no one cares what you say here...you opinion is obviously one that doesn't favor the Lions or Tigers or probably any Detroit team or even the city most likely!

This is really a crucial moment in SUh's career.  Most observers feel he has Hall of Fame potential (and huge huge money potential with his great name recognition and so much hype).  On the other hand he ALSO has the potential to be the next ALBERT HAYNESWORTH eho threw away his fabulous ability and ended up as a boorish sideshow.

It's really up to the man himself to recognize what a slippery slope he is on.  Personally, I hope he gets his act together.....he is one hell of a football player.
