    Ndamukong Suh

    Despite being a Viking's fan, I am not writing this as a fan bitter about the loss. The Lions outplayed them and were actually hosed out of touchdown (Calvin Johnson was jobbed)

    However, I'm just tired of seeing Ndamukong Suh rack up injury after injury with illegal hits. A man with his athletic ability does not need to result in such repeated cheap shots. Yesterday's shot on Sullivan was just another on the list of really violent cheap shots. I'd love to see him get suspended for his play.

    I'm not a big die-hard pro sports guy, so I guess I find it easier for me to say this, but I wouldn't want him on my team because I would have a hard time cheering for him. I remember when Albert Haynesworth became a free agent and some fellow Viking's fans were talking him up. All I could think was, "There is no way in hell that I can ever root for a guy like that." That cleating incident made me root for him to fail, and that is not in my character.

    Suh is starting to drift towards that level with me. I'm interested to hear a Lion's fan's point of view on him. I know he does a ton of charity work, so don't pepper me with that argument please. I just want to know if you get tired of having to defend his actions to the point of you not wanting him on your team, or if the results on the field allow him a pass.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Cheap hit, hope he is suspended, no place in football for a low hit like that behind the play.


    Go Cyclones!!

    Re: Ndamukong Suh

    I don't know. Something just doesn't add up with this guy. If we're playing armchair shrink, I would guess he has an anger management problem that so far has only manifested on the football field.

    At any rate, hes reached the point where if I was a GM I wouldn't want him on my team. The potential is there, but the results just don't outweigh the distractions at this point. On the other hand, the Lions have already sunk so much money into him that they're kind of stuck with him for better or worse.

    wow, hadn't seen that yet. Wouldn't be surprised to see another suspension with his history.

    Man if you think Lions fans are bad trying to defend, you should hear the husker half-wits doing it. Ridiculous.

    Never heard the extent of Sullivan's injury. I despise Suh, you can tell he has no remorse at all.

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I'd guess that he's a guy that plays with a lot of hate and anger on the field and hasn't learned how to keep it under control. I've seen his "apologies" after the stomp and I think it's pretty obvious that he never thinks he's in the wrong.

    I've seen ALOT worse than that. I must be the only one that isn't horrified by that block.

    Next tailgate we can get together so I can try Suh's "block" on you while you run at full speed. Then we'll see how bad it is.
